The Hungarian Language - Journal

The Hungarian Language - Journal Of The Society Of Hungarian Linguistics. Magyar Nyelv [The Hungarian Language] is the official journal of the Hungarian Linguistic Society, founded in 1904. It was first published in 1905, and has been regularly appearing since then, with no year skipped. Initially, it was financed by donations coming from members of the Society; since 1945 it is financially supported by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, too. For quite some time now, it has been published quarterly, i.e. in four issues a year, running to an annual total of 32 printed sheets (cca 520 pages). Its primary aim, when it was founded, was to provide a forum for the scholarly investigation, as well as public and educational cultivation, of the Hungarian language. Upon the widening of the scope of interest of the membership of the Society and the increase in the number of its various sections, the range of topics covered by the journal gradually extended beyond the linguistics of Hungarian to that of other languages studied in Hungary, thus primarily to the fields of Germanistics, Romanistics and Slavistics, as well as general and applied linguistics.

Ecosim - Teambuilding with Business Simulation Games

During the program participants have to form teams of 3-5, and take over the management of a fictitious company. Business decisions have to be made, which are evaluated by a computer model, representing the market and the economic environment. The key is to work together in a team, make decisions jointly, share experiences and ideas. And thus get closer to each other and try to learn to appreciate and anticipate each other better. Since effective management needs an overall view of all the company areas, the participants rely very much on each other - this is how it engages teamwork. With respect to other “classical” team-building training courses, the process goes automatically as team-members have to work jointly to accomplish a goal: managing a company. This is very professional and business like, so the learning outcomes can be linked to everyday work very easily.
