Course description

Develop students’ communicative competence by extending and practicing the four language skills, with special emphasis on veterinary terminology and on understanding spoken language – based on the knowledge they acquired in the previous course(s).


The primary aim of the subject is to help students prepare for the field practice in the clinics. To provide them with the passive knowledge of a special vocabulary (words, phrases, sentence patterns) in order to be able to follow the conversation between vets and clients in Hungarian, and a certain active vocabulary, which they can use to respond to the situations. Pronunciation and reading Hungarian texts will be practiced. In addition, students are going to learn some basic social Hungarian as well.


ClinicalHungarian 1.beginner or Basic Hungarian2 (Students who join the course after having completed Basic2 will have to catch up with veterinary terminology taught in ClinHun1.beginners’ course)
