Committee Members

Standing Committee members for 2021

Barbara K. Horváth

I am presently the vice-president of the IATEFL-Hungary committee. I graduated from Kodolányi János University as a teacher of English Language and Literature and a Communication Specialist. Then I went on to study for a postgraduate degree in Assessment of Reading Comprehension at the University of Szeged and completed my MA at the University of Pannonia. Now I am a PHD student in the English Language Pedagogy Program at Eötvös Loránd University.

Apart from being a teacher, I am an enthusiastic learner, too. I think a good teacher never stops learning. I always look for the opportunities to refresh and update my knowledge and skills. I have taken part in a lot of training courses and I have felt honored many times representing our association at conferences in Hungary and abroad. I am proud of being an alumna of the International Visitor Leadership Program of the US Embassy, and also proud of all those projects we organized with the Regional English Language Office of the US Embassy. I also make a point of studying and carrying out research on multicultural issues, such as diversity, segregation and integration, and then implementing the best practices in the English language classroom in order to foster tolerance among my students.

This year I have worked on the application and documentation  of our summer course for next year. I am very happy to announce that we have won more than 17 thousand dollars for a 4-day course focusing on critical thinking and media literacy that we can hopefully organize by Lake Balaton in July 2021 after the pandemic is over. In order to get the grant, I also had to update our SAM database at the US Embassy and our NCAGE database at the Ministry of Defence which took me quite a lot of time and energy. 

My aim for the next year is to find and apply for grants in order to provide more CPD opportunities for our members. 

Claudia Molnár

I was born and raised in North London and moved to Hungary, with my two children, in 2007. I did my initial CELTA training in 1998 and have been teaching EFL/ESOL since then. I went on to study for DELTA, PGCE and a Master’s in Education (TESOL). I have just completed a PHD in Multilingualism through instruction with the main area of my research being developing confidence and learner autonomy in a teacher training context.

From 1998 to 2007 I taught EFL/ESOL in a North London FE college. This included ESP for a variety of subjects while working with asylum seekers preparing to further their education or join the job market. I also taught on the Certificate of Education as a teacher trainer and acted as a quality manager, carrying out lesson observations and running staff development sessions. One of the roles I particularly enjoyed was my role as student support coordinator, which gave me a real insight into the needs and problems of students and how they can be supported through the learning process.

Since moving to Hungary I spent five years teaching in a secondary grammar school and I am currently head of English language pedagogy and a teacher trainer for the English and American studies Institute at the University of Pannonia in Veszprém. 

I have been on the committee since October 2016 in the roles of International Coordinator and (joint) regional branch coordinator and I am the current President in my third term.

I look forward to seeing you at our various events throughout the year! :)

László Németh

Hello Everyone!

My name's László Németh, but feel free to call me Laci.

I work as full-time English teacher at the Dual Language School of Balatonalmádi and as part-time lecturer at the University of Pannonia. In addition, I am a contracted materials writer and educational content specialist at BOOKR Kids, a Budapest-based edutainment company. Currently pursuing PhD studies, I have thus far obtained a BA and a Master's degree in English Studies, and an MEd in TEFL.

My involvement with IATEFL-Hungary as International and Publications  Coordinator has comprised of responsibilities such as editing the newsletter, designing conference brochures and other marketing materials, keeping in touch with partners, as well as organising online and offline CPD events, in part as head organiser at the Veszprém Creative Café branch.

In my free time, I love to seize opportunities that help me broaden my horizons. I am a firm believer of lifelong learning and always keen on looking at things from various (new) perspectives.

Regarding my research interests, the list includes but is not certainly not limited to the following: 21st-century skills, authenticity in the classroom, CLIL, and using technology in the classroom.

Thank you for supporting IATEFL-Hungary, and I cannot wait to see you at our future events!

János Ujlaki

I have been teaching both English and Mathematics since 2010. I have worked in various types of secondary schools (grammar school, vocational, technical and private), and I have also been teaching in bilingual education. I have also been involved in various projects, from Erasmus to material writing. Besides teaching, I am interested in training and professional development. I attend conferences and other CPD events as I find it important and necessary to keep up with the latest trends in language teaching. 

I joined the committee in 2018 and since then I have been the exhibitors coordinator and I am also in charge of coordinating the Creative Cafés.  I also take part in organising our events, and I have also represented the association in other conferences.

Unfortunately, 2020 hasn't been an active year for the association, but I hope as soon as the pandemic is over, we'll get back on track. I will try my best to maintain the association and organise CPD events for our members. I will also try to get in touch with possible sponsors to make our events worth visiting.


Committee members in 2020

Claudia Molnár

President

Hi!

I was born and raised in North London and moved to Hungary, with my two children, in 2007. I did my initial CELTA training in 1998 and have been teaching EFL/ESOL since then. I went on to study for DELTA, PGCE and a Master’s in Education (TESOL). I am currently studying for a PHD in Applied Linguistics with the main area of my research being developing confidence and learner autonomy in a teacher training context.

 From 1998 to 2007 I taught EFL/ESOL in a North London FE college. This included ESP for a variety of subjects while working with asylum seekers preparing to further their education or join the job market.

Since moving to Hungary I spent five years teaching in a secondary grammar school and I am currently a teacher and trainer for the English and American studies Institute at the University of Pannonia in Veszprém. I also teach and examine for the British Council Hungary.

Since OCTOBER 2016 I have been the International Coordinator and (joint) regional branch coordinator for the IATEFL Hungary organising committee.

My most exciting venture to date is the Regional Creative Café, Veszprém, which launched on 5th October, and acts as an outreach café for practicing teachers and trainees who find it difficult to get to Budapest each month. I am really looking forward to how this will develop as we already have a great line up of presentations and workshops for the coming months!

I look forward to seeing you at various events throughout the year! :)

Gergő Fekete

Marketing coordinator

I’m a relatively fresh graduate of ELTE. I received my M.A. in English and German Language Teaching in 2017, and I’ve been teaching at Radnóti Miklós Secondary School ever since. I immensely enjoy teaching both languages, but English has always been my number one passion and the centre of my professional interest.

A truly eye-opening stay in the U.S. sparked my interest in educating for global citizenship, which paved the way to IATEFL’s Global Issues Special Interest Group where I’ve been a committee member since 2016. I’m in charge of managing our social media platforms, but I’ve also been involved in writing book reviews, summaries of different events, and putting together our latest publication “Global Issues in an Uncertain World.” Due to my interest in working with still and moving images and exploring global issues in class, I was also responsible for setting up an online calendar of special days that gives free access to a growing number of complete lesson plans and activities based on days of global significance. I believe these are all areas where I could make use of my experience, dedication, and creativity as part of the IATEFL-Hungary committee.

The international experience I gained as an exchange student in different countries made me realise how much I like interacting with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. After school finishes in June, I use (part of) my summers to work for XUK (UK), an organisation offering English tuition to kids in residential camps.

In my remaining free time, I enjoy doing sports and I’m an enthusiastic conference-goer and an avid presenter at various events.

Judit J. Tóth

Website administrator

I have been an English teacher at ELTE Radnóti Miklós Secondary School, Budapest, ever since my graduation in 1993, only leaving it for maternity leave and for the two years I spent in the U.S., teaching English to immigrants. I am also a teacher trainer and head of the English Department at my school. My pet project is finding volunteer native (or non-native) English speakers to take part in the lessons and so help students develop not only their speaking skills but also their intercultural awareness. I also try to follow the world around us and adapt my teaching to the 21st century. This does not only mean using technology, but also gamification, skills development, and a general attempt at trying to change the way students are involved in their learning.

I have been a member of IATEFL Hungary for over a decade and have enthusiastically attended several conferences as well as other events of the Association. I thoroughly enjoy meeting colleagues and sharing experiences, and I am convinced that this association has helped me tremendously to avoid (or to turn back) burn-out – a phenomenon I think we need to pay more attention to.

During the last year I have been a member and vice president of the Committee, my main role being the website maintenance. It is an honour to work for an organisation that has given me so much over the years.

László Németh

Publications coordinator, international coordinator

I am a “fresh from the oven” language teacher. I work at the Dual Language School in Balatonalmádi as well as at a Veszprém-based language school. I am in my final year of MA studies, and I have a degree in English Philology and Social Studies. At the university, I was lucky enough to be awarded three major scholarships: (1) Köztársasági Scholarship; (2) Scholarship of National Higher Education; and (3) New National Scholarship of Excellence (ÚNKP). Teaching has always been my passion, and I firmly believe in lifelong learning. Besides teaching at schools, I am experienced in 1:1 tutoring and language exam preparation.

Ever since I joined IATEFL, I have tried to make the most out of this opportunity: I am a regular at the Veszprém Creative Café, where I have also given a workshop on authentic classroom resources. In addition, I attend the IATEFL-H conference and Winter Warmer every year. Last year, I participated as a junior researcher, but this year, I secured a place for myself among the main conference panel. My experience as presenter comes from various attendances at TOPOS research conferences in Veszprém and I also presented at ELTE’s Australia Day in 2015. I have 3rd places from “TDK” and “ITDK” competitions as well. My main research areas cover a vast range of topics: (1) authentic lesson planning; (2) English teacher-trainee language development; and (3) the native/non-native debate.

I worked as president of the Office of International Student Relations at The University of Pannonia, and it is now the third year that I have worked as student officer at our International Office. Thus, I gained valuable skills such as adaptive problem solving, creative thinking, effective communication, and management and organisation. There are, however, some other skills that might come in handy for IATEFL-H: I have basic coding skills for web-editing and can work with Adobe Photoshop efficiently. I am currently doing a UDEMY course on Social Media Marketing, and I am a language learner myself of German and Spanish. My hobbies involve everything mentioned above, and I also like design, music, photography, reading, sports and travelling.

János Ujlaki

Creative Café coordinator

I graduated from the College of Nyíregyháza as a teacher of Maths and English in 2010, then I completed my MA in Maths at the same college in 2011 and the MA in English at ELTE in 2012.

I have been a teacher of both subjects since my first graduation. I worked in a secondary school in Esztergom for many years, where I gained experience in teaching in various forms of secondary education. I currently work in a secondary grammar school in Budapest where I can get experience in bilingual education.

I am interested in various topics in ELT methodology, most recently in the use of technology in the classroom, 21st century skills, exam preparation (both English and Maths), language learning motivation and professional burnout. I recently got interested in teacher training as well.

The reason I would like to join the committee is to help IATEFL-Hungary as they helped me avoid burn-out so I could find my way back to my profession. My main aim is to persuade more EFL teachers to join IATEFL and be part of this professional community. I know that many teachers do not feel they need to update their existing knowledge in ELT methodology, but I want to convince them that being part of such community can help a lot to be better teachers and exchanging experience with other colleagues can lead to professional (and international) partnerships and friendships.

In my remaining free time, I’m an enthusiastic conference-goer and an avid presenter at various events on behalf of the GISIG committee and would be more than happy to be a representative of IATEFL-Hungary, too.

I have been involved in several Comenius and Erasmus+ projects, with countries all over Europe from Portugal to Finland. This has given me an international overview of education in general, and English teaching in particular, and has connected me with colleagues all around Europe. Some of these projects involved students, others were about material development or training.

I have been a member of IATEFL Hungary for over a decade and have enthusiastically attended several conferences as well as other events of the Association.

I always look for the ways and opportunities to refresh and update my knowledge and skills.

I also make a point of studying and carrying out research on multicultural issues, such as diversity, segregation and integration, and then implementing the best practices in the English language classroom in order to foster tolerance among our students.

My aims at the association:

- I think there is an undeveloped opportunity among the English teachers in the countryside. As a committee member, I would address and involve them and their institutions in the life of our association.

- I would revive the summer courses by finding funds from either the Regional English Language Office of the US Embassy or other possible partners.

- As my strength is communication, I would be happy to keep contact with our members and partners to provide more opportunities, to create and maintain more professional contacts at a national and international level.

I know that a lot can be done if a good team comes together and we give helping hands when needed, so I will work on creating a strong committee and a strong association.

I hope I have deserved your trust and I can offer my work for IATEFL-Hungary in 2018.”

Committee members in 2018

Roberta Illés

graduated from the Teacher’s Training College, Jászberény as a lower primary school teacher in 2005. During her studies she attended several teaching contests and national competitions (such as “OTDK”) where she received 3rd place with her research about Hungarian spelling mistakes among third graders.  She then realised that teaching is the path for her to follow. Roberta then graduated from Eger as a teacher of English language and literature. This was followed by another professional success: with the support of the Regional English Language Office of the US Embassy she was able to take students to tolerance camp during the summer and with their help she was also able to attend a 50-hour Critical Thinking e-learning course at the University of Oregon in 2012 and a 100-hour Teaching Young Learners course in 2014. Roberta then completed her Master studies at the University of Pécs in teacher education and qualified as a teacher of English language and culture in June.

In her own words: “I have been teaching English at a primary level for 12 years. Besides teaching young learners I am interested in the field of teacher’s development and using drama or drama related activities in the English language classrooms. I am also interested in research on how to moderate the gap between 4th and 5th grade. This is going to be the base of my further PhD studies. With the help of my colleague we organize a drama competition every year around April’s Fool Day called M.A.D (Mezőcsokonya Angol Dráma) Day. We invite drama groups from different schools and we have expert judges from theatres and universities or from the US Embassy. 

As a member of the IATEFL-Hungary committee, I would like to offer my help in coordination of the young learners Special Interest Group. Also, I will reconnect Akadémiai Kiadó and organize a nationwide competition for students. As someone living and working outside Budapest I would also help organizing events for teachers in the regional branches, including the Kaposvár branch and the Kaposvár Regional Creative Café. As a very patient and easy-going person I would be more than happy to be a part of a hard-working team of the IATEFL-Hungary.”
