    “I very much enjoyed Gergely’s history class. It was interesting to hear his perspective on European as well as Hungarian history. He fit a lot of material into a half hour each week. Quite a bit of the information also explained Hungarian genealogy as well.”  ~ Michelle, Michigan

    “I really enjoyed the history and culture class with  Gergely. I appreciate his humor and insights that are usually  missing with just reading about the events.” ~ Robin, Illinois
