MISI - Hungarian School

"A nation lives through its language."

Szechenyi Istvan is quoted as saying, „A nyelvében él a nemzet,” or „A nation lives through its language”. The MISI Hungarian School subscribes to this philosophy and believes that by bringing children together in regular, structured classroom instruction supplemented by extra-curricular activities, such as: singing Hungarian songs, playing Hungarian games, studying history, folktale drama presentations, and participating in culture events, they will maintain a link to their heritage and develop a love and respect for their heritage.

The teaching staff of the MISI School will do their best to give the children a foundation in the Hungarian language that they will be able to build upon as they grow. The goal is to provide the children with a structural and thematic approach in reading and writing and also arouse an interest in a continued curiosity and appreciation of Hungarian culture.


April 6, 2014 marked the date that 23 excited children embarked on a new adventure-learning about her heritage and culture through the formal study of the Hungarian language. Supported by a grant from the Hungary Initiatives Foundation, the school is the first of its kind for the over 100-year-old organization. It has been fondly named the MISI Hungarian School and the children are called the MISI Mókusok.

The children were initially grouped into three classes based on their ages. The classes are designed to provide the children the opportunity to succeed to read and write in Hungarian, with particular emphasis on reading and conversation. Our position is that by acquiring an ability to read in Hungarian the student is provided an indirect means of continued proficiency in the language, and that through reading they might learn about and develop an interest in the Hungarian culture. The teachers and the leaders of the Minnesota Hungarians believe that the school is providing their community the opportunity to study our language and culture all the while providing an environment where children of like ages can develop life-long friendships and a chance to speak in their parents' native language.
