The Importance of Hungarian Language Education in Preserving the Identity of Hungarians Living in Diaspora
The study aims to give a comprehensive view on the Hungarian language education of those living in the Hungarian Diaspora. Through the review of international literature the authors examine the situation and position of Hungarians living outside the borders and the preservation of their identity as well as the history of their language education and its current trends. As a case study of the identity preserving activities of Hungarian Diaspora, the authors introduce the community organising activities of Hungarian Diaspora living on the different continents, and their Hungarian language education with its advantages and problems as well. Besides this, the study compares an Australian, North-American and Latin-American school and their language education as well as the identity preserving activities of Hungarian Diaspora living there.
