About Zsombor

I am a teacher of English and Hungarian as a foreign language. In 2011, I founded the TAKE FIVE - English Language Club. In 2016, I started working at a school where I teach children with special educational needs. I regularly write about my experiences in the classroom or about any other education-related topics. Besides teaching, I'm also interested in film-making. I got my first camcorder at the age of 17, and I've been learning about cinematography ever since. I spent 4 years studying film theory and history, and I also had a chance to spend half a year at the Budapest Film Academy, attending a writing-directing course.

Let’s play!

We launched our gaming sessions last night, and we can tell you that we had a great time! If you feel the need to unwind at the end of a long day, or you simply miss the club, don’t hesitate to join us for some light-hearted gaming every second Thursday until the winter break. Check out the calendar for the dates. If you’re interested, feel free to contact us on our Facebook page, and we’ll send you the link to our Discord server.

Temporarily closed

Dear All,

After due consideration, we, the TAKE FIVE organizers, have come to the decision that we will no longer continue our regular sessions in the current situation.

The lack of personal contact and the recurring technical glitches in the online space, among other things, seem to be leading to extremely low attendance. In order to maintain the true spirit of our club, we all agree that the regular meetings should be resumed sometime during the spring, or alternatively, after the impact of the pandemic on our daily life has subsided.

Nevertheless, it would be difficult for us to completely lose touch with you. We are currently discussing other options to fill the void throughout the long break.

Thank you for your understanding.
Stay tuned for updates here or on our Facebook page.

We are moving online!

In response to the current situation, we have decided to move online for the rest of the season and continue our scheduled sessions. The events are going to be organized in Discord, an online text and voice messaging application. We will try our best to stick to the regular format, including the introductory section, the small group discussions and the games. Find the latest event on our Facebook page to receive the invite link to our Discord server. The link will be posted in the event one day before the session.

Students in the spotlight

This summer we decided to inject some authentic real-life experience into our regular intensive English course. Since the third session of TAKE FIVE coincided with our course, the students left the classroom for a night and joined the English club, where they mingled with the crowd and had a great time. Meanwhile, we marked another long-awaited record of 22 attendees.
