Meet our advisory board
An advisory board refers to a group of experienced individuals, including ELT (English Language Teaching) experts and network facilitators, who are appointed to provide guidance and oversight for the ongoing development of a specific network or organization. Their primary role involves offering strategic advice, sharing industry knowledge, and assisting in decision-making processes. The advisory board plays a vital part in ensuring the network’s growth, sustainability, and success by leveraging their expertise and experience. Additionally, they actively contribute to community building and engagement facilitation, fostering a supportive and valuable environment that attracts and retains dedicated members within the professional network.
“I’ve taught English as a foreign language for over 20 years in public secondary schools and private language schools, covering all levels. My expertise includes vocational English in ICT, Business Studies, Tourism, and Catering. As an English teacher and linguist, I’m dedicated to instilling a love for the language, critical thinking, creativity, and effective communication skills. Throughout my career, I’ve ensured students’ success in a positive learning environment through engaging lessons, diverse teaching methods, resources, and interactive platforms. Embracing continuous professional development, I actively seek opportunities to enhance my teaching skills through training courses and leverage technology to enrich learning experiences.”
In the early stages of my career, I gained extensive experience across various sectors of public education. This included teaching at two primary schools, a grammar school, three universities, and serving as the head teacher of a language camp for a span of 7 years. After dedicating two decades to teaching adults, I recently returned to a vocational school and recognized the demand for new approaches and methods in our ever-evolving times. It is our collective responsibility to embrace this challenge, experiment with innovative ideas, and determine what truly works. I find this endeavor to be both invigorating and thrilling, as we continually strive to enhance the learning experience for our students.
“I am Orsolya Szelei, I am a teacher of English at the Bajza József High School in Hatvan. In addition to obtaining a teaching degree, I have taken a number of training and online courses in order to bring more colourful, up-to-date and adaptable skills to the classroom. In addition to teaching and preparing for school-leaving exams, I have been organising and coordinating the school’s European Union partner school programmes for more than two decades. In addition, I organise educational and cultural programmes inside and outside the school that complement or deepen students’ studies, but also make them more personal and experiential.”
