I graduated from Marx Károly University of Economics as an economist and from ELTE as a teacher of English grammar and literature.
In 1993 I started to work at the English Department of the then Külkereskedelmi Főiskola, one of BGE’s predecessors, and at present work as a senior lecturer at the Department of International Business Languages of BGE FIMB. I have taught several subjects over the years, among others business language, foreign language for international relations, presentation skills development, communication skills development, media language.
Besides my work as a college teacher I have been involved in various other projects, e.g. worked for years as a translator at Reuters or as a language examiner for UNHCR.
Since 2000 I have been a language examiner at BGE’s Language Exam Centre.
In 2016 I obtained a PhD degree in modern English literature at ELTE‘s Doctoral School of Literary Studies. My dissertation deals with the heritage film phenomenon, its literary and philosophical aspects as well as its economic background. My research interests also include linguistics (business, especially finance-related terminology), and language pedagogy.
All through my career I have been an ardent advocate of content-based learning, i.e. connecting
language teaching with the revision and systematisation of business or economic content.
