Are you a foreigner in Budapest?
If you are a non-Hungarian young parent in Hungary, life might not always be easy for you.
Many Hungarians cannot speak English, and it is not easy to learn Hungarian for foreigners either. This fact can make you a little depressed and lonely some days, but we recommend you to keep on trying to mingle.
Are you looking for a child-friendly and family-focused English program? It would be essential for you and your kids in Hungary to have fun and develop core skills together.
Have you heard about Rhyme Time bilingual music groups?
The Rhyme Time method focuses on English as a second language; music, rhythm, body movements and parent-child bonding are the main pillars and they offer you classes and tons of home activities in English.
Rhyme Time (0-3 years) and Jump & Fun (3-8 years) early English music classes are special opportunities to meet local & expat English-speaking mothers with babies and/or toddlers.
If you want to be a part of a great group where a mom and a child can both improve and find new friends, come and join these awesome classes near you.
The Rhyme Time team supports you in many ways: What, how and when to use English if it is not your children’s dominant language. How to make friends?

Rhyme Time classes are special opportunities to meet local & expat moms with babies or toddlers who want to raise their kids in English as well! If you want to be a part of our great group where mom and child both find new friends, come and join us!
Our program is a good opportunity even for those mothers who are not familiar with English nursery rhymes and games but want to learn more about them. Songs and cuddling stimulate learning and children have a fun and active time with clapping, wriggling, tickling, jumping, and stamping!
I started looking after children is 2004. I worked as a full time nanny with expat families living in Budapest from 2007. I spent every day in English, playing and singing songs for little ones. My first son, Félix, was born in 2011 and I decided to raise him bilingual! We have English play time every day as well! He loves all the songs and funny games. Now having Ákos and Ádám, we have even more fun!
I started leading Rhyme Time groups with Ákos when he was 5 month old. After a year of 2-3 home groups, I started to lead 5-6 classes per week at different play houses in the city. Now I’m happy to introduce my new team that present all these classes for both Hungarian and expat moms, while I’m doing the same with baby nr. 3!
Practising and playing at home helps both of you to remember the words and actions you’ve learnt.
