Hi, I’m Zsombor, founder of the club. I am studying to be a teacher of English and Hungarian at ELTE university. I also work at a school where I teach children with special needs. I’m interested in film-making and writing. Besides, having grown up in a musical family, I sometimes sit down at a piano or grab my guitar to play a few chords. The famous jazz standard reflects the atmosphere of the club perfectly. Come join us and see it for youself!
“When I grow up, I want to be a little boy.” – Joseph Heller
Greetings, I am the one they know as Balázs, which comes from my name: Balázs. Like many of the English Majors at ELTE, I also attended ELTE as an English Major, which I’m afraid doesn’t have anything to do with either nationality, or rank. I’m fond of jazz, keen on science fiction, and awkward in tiny, black lingerie. I am known for my long, blonde hair, my perfect accent in Mongolian, and my compulsive lying. I also teach English, although one day I wish to be a translator; on all the other days I wish to be Martin Scorcese’s left eyebrow.
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.” – Philip K. Dick
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!

Our former organizers who still pop up sometimes as enthusiastic visitors:
Hey, I’m Nóra. I also study English at ELTE. Litera-ture 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.
“Arrange whatever pieces come your way.”
