Welcome to Debrecen!


The American Corner has switched into summer mode.

With June just around the Corner, the American Corner has switched its English Conversation Club into summer mode. Like last year, they will usually meet at various outdoor locations such as in parks, the botanical garden, baseball games, etc.

Please check our events calendar on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AmCornerDEB/events) to find out where the next meeting is going to be.

On June 13, 2023 (weather permitting), let’s keep our fingers crossed for good weather and meet in the Nagyerdő (Great Forest) Park, on the shore of Békás-tó (Froggy Pond) closest to the University main building. Feel free to bring blankets, frisbees, food to eat (or share), and definitely some liquids and sunscreen.

If you would like to meet the American Corner before the next English Conversation Club, visit the Debrecen Book Festival taking place between 7 and 11 June 2023 on the Csapó Street pedestrian zone and look for the “International Booth”, which the American Corner will share with Alliance Française and the Goethe Institute/Deutsches Kulturforum.

On their part, ACD will prepare with some books showcased from their collection, quizzes on American culture (Thursday and Friday at 4 pm), and a board game event on Saturday (from 2 pm). Information and advice on opportunities to study in the US will also be available (EducationUSA advising).

From time to time (for schools visiting the American Corner, and other engagements), they will be also at the library, so the planned times when you can find them at the booth will be posted and updated on their Facebook page.
