Debrecen offers a wide range of language learning opportunities for people living, working or studying in the city. Language courses are available in a number of European and world languages, including but not limited to English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Romanian, Turkish, Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and, of course, Hungarian.

Besides local language schools, the Foreign Language Center of the University of Debrecen provides quite a few foreign language courses not only for students but also for anyone living in Debrecen.  Similarly, you can find a list of foreign language courses especially designed for non-Hungarians by the Foreign Language Section of Debrecen Summer School

The recently established Confucius Institute of the University of Debrecen is the best place to learn Chinese with the help of native teachers, while the ever-popular Korean language courses have been organised with great success by King Sejong Institute, Debrecen since 2020. 

Foreigners who would like to learn Hungarian can select from various options. The most prestigious institution of its kind, Debrecen Summer School, was established in 1927 and has been serving the international community ever since. In addition to the traditional two- or four-week Hungarian Language and Culture Summer Courses, the school offers Hungarian on every level all through the year for groups and individuals onsite and online.
