  • knowledge and understanding of English speaking cultures

  • skills of intercultural communication

  • skills of gathering, processing and transmitting information in a wide range of contexts

  • critical thinking

  • knowledge, skills and attitudes to become reflective teachers.


Anti-discrimination statement:


The staff of the Department of English Language Pedagogy are fully committed both to promoting freedom of expression and to respecting the rights and dignity of all people regardless of their ethnic or socio-cultural background, gender, religion, beliefs or sexual orientation. As we consider diversity beneficial, and respectful communication essential, we expect the same commitment from our students in their discourse and behaviour.

On 16 March, 2013 the School of English and American Studies published the following declaration on its website at http://seas3.elte.hu/seas/portal.html :

Mi, az ELTE BTK Angol–Amerikai Intézetének tanárai és munkatársai teljes szívünkből elítéljük és mélyen felháborítónak tartjuk azt az alantas támadást, amelyet az elmúlt napokban intéztek — fajgyűlöletet szító feliratok elhelyezésével — egyes oktatótársaink és munkatársaink ellen ismeretlen tettesek. Ezt a támadást éppen olyan határozottan elítéljük, mint — ahogy azt már többször kijelentettük és az Intézet antidiszkriminációs nyilatkozatában megfogalmaztuk — magának a megkülönböztetésnek és kirekesztésnek minden formáját.


The School of English and American Studies wishes to impart the following declaration, apropos the appearance of anti-Semitic remarks on the doors of some of our colleagues not so long ago.

The entire body of academic and administrative staff of the School of English and American Studies condemns wholeheartedly and without reservation the obnoxious racist attacks, executed under the cover of anonymity, aimed at some of our colleagues’ personal integrity in the schools of the Faculty. We condemn this attack as categorically as we do all other imaginable forms of discrimination (as worded in the School’s antidiscrimination policy).
