Hi, I’m Zsombor, the founder of this club. I am a teacher of English and also Hungarian as a foreign language. I currently work at a school where I teach children with special educational needs. Since 2016 this has been the main focus of my teaching career. When I’m not in the school building, I like to immerse myself in writing on my blog or playing a few chords on one of my guitars.

My dearest Timothy,
If you are reading these lines, it means that I’m dead, killed by the Baron at last. You must avenge me and … Oh, wait a minute, wrong text. So… hi! My name’s Balázs and I have been an organiser at TAKE FIVE for a number of years now. At the moment I am learning to be a teacher, or, depending on when you’re reading this, I have successfully become one. If I’m not doing something English-related, I try to learn other languages (with very limited success), hang out with my friends or play on the computer (with somewhat more success).

Hi, my name is Zorka! If all goes according to plan, I’m going to become an English and German teacher in a few years. I am absolutely crazy about English, I genuinely enjoy learning new expressions and grammar rules – isn’t that nuts?! Other than that, I am obsessed with fashion, reading, writing and DIY stuff. A lot of my creative work is influenced by feminism and my interest in mental health. If you share my passion for English even in the slightest, TAKE FIVE is the place for you. I hope to see you in our next session!

Our former organizers (2012-2022):
Hey, I am Erika, also an English major from ELTE. One day I’d like to be an interpreter or a rock star, just haven’t made up my mind yet. Besides English, I am really into arts; my hobbies include singing, playing the piano and scuba diving. Music is my religion, my favourite genre is rock/metal; therefore, I usually go to concerts with my friends. If not, we’re hanging out in a café… or at a TAKE FIVE session!

Hello All! I’m Dorka. I’ve been learning English since I was a small kid and I am passionate about getting to know others. I believe in the power of smiling, I love spending time in nature, reading books, playing board games, and I’m so excited about learning new things such as sign language or horse riding. After I moved back home from abroad, the TAKE FIVE club felt like home filled with friends. Hope you come along some day and enjoy our company. Cheers to seeing you soon! 🙂

Hey, I’m Nóra. I also study English at ELTE. Literature stands closest to my heart, but I’m also interested in certain fields of lingustics. After finishing my studies at the university, I’d love to become an English teacher. Bearing a curious nature, I love getting to know new people, cultures and languages. In my spare time I like playing the flute, reading or just walking around the city with friends, even on my own at times. Take Five is a great place to come to exchange ideas and practice your English, so in case you’re interested, do come along.
“Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street.” – Dorothy Fields
Hi there! I’m Fanni.
Like the other organizers, I also go to ELTE, where I study English Literature. When I’m not running around the city on mysterious errands or teaching, I can usually be found in coffee houses with Aloysius, my faithful comrade in arms (my e-reader, named after a famous teddy bear). I’m a devoted fan of jasmine green tea, badgers, and English.
