Changes in the situation of Hungarian sign language from the perspective of education and teaching in the last twenty years


This study provides an overview of the important changes in Hungarian sign language in the last twenty years. It describes changes in the legal background, and the most important research projects and results on this topic. It gives an insight into changes of views and attitudes towards bilingual teaching in Hungary. It also highlights and analyses elements of deaf children’s language development and of sign language in the pedagogical plan at a special school for deaf children. Linguists have done outstanding work related to Hungarian sign language and they have achieved important results in the last two decades. In addition, the linguistic status of sign language has been converted into law. However, there is still a number of tasks for teachers, special education teachers and other experts related to the introduction and consolidation of bilingual teaching at deaf education institutions.

Error-correction strategies in oral reading: results of acoustic phonetic and eye-tracking research

Experiences of a pilot research with 4th graders


Fluency and the rate of oral reading are the main assessment tools of reading ability. In addition to reading fluency, the types of oral reading errors can also be examined. The correction of these errors might require other strategies than the correction of errors occurring in spontaneous speech. This paper analyses the error correction processes during oral reading by acoustic-phonetic and eye-tracking methods. This latter is novelty both in Hungarian and international literature. Results show that the difficulty of error-correction occurs both in speech and eye-movements. Errors which are more difficult to correct require longer correction time and they go together with more complex eye-movements. Results might contribute to increasing the effectiveness of teaching reading and modernising the development of reading techniques.

The attitude towards dialectal speech among teachers


The topic of this study is teachers’ attitude towards students using dialect as their standard language. The recollection of ’Szögedi Szociolingvisztikai Interview’ and the cases collected by the author in 2010 show that some of the Hungarian teachers are not prepared for treating students speaking a dialect. The cases introduced cover the entire education system, from kindergarten to higher education. Besides raising the problem, this study also discusses at what points in teacher training it would be worth speaking about this problem so that the new generations of teachers do not make the same mistakes as their predecessors.

Nonviolent communication in the classroom


Verbal aggressiveness has a particularly hindering effect on children’s personality development. Since children spend most of their time at school, this institution has the most effect on students’ personality development. Therefore, it is of crucial importance how teachers communicate, solve conflicts with students and thus what example teachers set for students of an emotionally intelligent way of speech. It is essential that children with a family background where this example is not set at home would learn about this new way of communication at school. This idea is supported by the training that introduces the basics of nonviolent communication with the help of experience-based learning to a group of adolescents. Trying the presented exercises might contribute to creating a community that is able to cooperate and successfully manage conflicts.
