I’m Gulacsi Annamaria, an English and Dutch teacher. Amongst other things, I have a bachelor of Arts in English and Dutch language studies, and thanks to scholarships and delegations, have had the opportunity to practise my language knowledge in native-speaking environments (French as well, in addition to the two listed above). Most of the children that I teach only learn years later that I understand and speak Hungarian. This is something I am very proud of.
Teaching young children a new language is, for me, the best job in the world and something I have been doing since I was a child myself. I’ve been raising my own children bilingual for the past 7-8 years. Since 2016, I am a leading part of the Rhyme Time team, a mentor and instructor in the training of new Rhyme Time teachers, and in 2020 became the sole owner and leader of the Rhyme Time brand.
The development and expansion of our method has been the biggest accomplishment of my career. The only thing I am even more proud of is that besides my own children, I have taught hundreds of kids not only to speak another language but to love it. At the moment, I have 13 groups that I teach and this number has risen from year-to-year. My groups are varied, both online and in person.
In addition to children’s classes, I have developed 7 online courses for parents to provide support for their children’s English learning, because I believe that we can reach the greatest success with children by WORKING TOGETHER with the parents. And our Rhyme Time method is based precisely on this.
The very first Jump&Fun camp held in summer 2019 was so completely enchanting for myself and my children that my daughter, Lulu, counts down the months in the year until it’s time for camp again! The campers developed well beyond our expectations, not only in English but in other skills as well, and this makes me so very proud! We love every minute of it! Thankfully, we will be able to have camp again this year while adhering to the health guidelines. Myself and my team of Jump&Fun teachers can’t wait to see everyone again at camp!
