About Budapest

Experience Hungarian life and culture, take in the historic buildings and fascinating architecture, and enjoy the world famous night-life!

The Guardian, Lonely Planet, and the New York Times all rave about Budapest as a top travel destination. CNN names it outright as the 2nd best city in the world and the best city in Europe, with InterNations ranking Hungary as the 11th best country in the world to live for expats.

Budapest is a fantastic place to be. Don’t take other people’s word for it. Find out for yourself. From the city’s unique “ruin pubs“, the Europe-leading “Sziget” music festival, or the world class A38 boat/concert venue Budapest is where it’s happening.

Hungary’s location in the heart of Central Europe makes it a great base for travel in the region. Bordered by seven countries with diverse and colorful languages and cultures all within a 2-3 hour train ride, you couldn’t find a better gate to travel in Europe.

Teaching English in Hungary means the chance to stay abroad while being close to home. Just the right balance of novelty and adventure, yet comfortable and easy to navigate, all in the heart of Europe!

Our teachers love living in Budapest. They find it to be a manageable city offering everything you could want within easy reach, all with the help of an accessible, world class public transport system.

"Cafe English is a school thatstands out among the rest when it comes to engaging students in learning. Itdoes this because – simply – the method we use is engaging –it’s exciting, it’s real-world, it’s interactive, and it’s stimulating. I’ve alwaysenjoyed my classes as much as my students, and seeing the growth that we enableteaching this way is truly rewarding. The students want to be here, and theteachers want to be here. That makes for a great work environment as well as alearning one.”

“Working at Café English gave me the opportunity toteach modern-style, organic and unconventional English lessons that really gaveme the freedom to explore my own creativity. Leading the small groups of mystudents was truly a fun, exciting experience that was never the same lessonafter lesson – never dull! I think, in large part, this is because I was alwaysencouraged to keep things fresh and exciting with them, so, really, I was giventhe chance to create my own working environment and give more genuine lessonsthan you might expect from your average language school.”
