Anet Pichler – General Manager
I concluded my MBA at IE Business School in Madrid, with focus on Entrepreneurship and followed 10 years of Retail chain management in Spain, where I specialized in franchise systems’ management. In 2010 the crisis opened new opportunities and decided to found a startup based on my personal concept. I speak fairly well 5 languages and I learnt them all outside the typical school environment. This hands-on experience is the basis of Angolfalu and our aim is to make available this effective and inmediate method to all language learners.
Nikolett Skandera – Project Manager
I studied Social Sciences and now I am doing my Master’s degree in International Human Rights. I was camp coordinator of Angolfalu’s 2016 Summer Camps. Earlier, I volunteered to work with asylum seekers, children raised by the state care, Romani girls and Turkish kids – all of which I greatly appreciate. I learn Spanish and French and in my free time I enjoy jogging, attending concerts, watching documentary films and going out with friends.
Katalin Visy – Head of Studies
I moved to Budapest from the UK where I studied Development Education and Global Learning at University College London. In the last 10 years of my professional career I coordinated various educational programmes and youth projects in Hungary, Scotland, India and London. My special field of interest is non-formal and alternative pedagogical approaches to learn more about and engage with the wider world. At Angolfalu, I am responsible for developing content and methodology for our innovative programmes. I also love yoga, and enjoy walking, reading and spending time with friends in nature.
Alyssa Lopez – Conversationalist
I have lived in the USA up until May of this year when I made the decision to follow my heart and move abroad. I have been living in Budapest since July and I am so in love with this city and culture. I am now a freelance Social Media Manager and in my free time you can find me studying in my Hungarian language class or cuddling with my very sweet kitten, Béla.
Jack Bache – Conversationalist
I instantly fell in love with Budapest the moment I arrived in August. I’ve been living and working in the city ever since. I studied sports coaching and science at college, along with A level English. I started up my own garage door business in the UK, which was a challenging but great experience. Football is my biggest passion, playing & watching.

The basics of foreign language learning are language classes with a language teacher. However, these classes do not include a personalized learning rhythm. Additionally, because of the focus on grammar, most students tend to stagnate at a certain level. Because of the lack of opportunity to use the acquired language skills as well as the lacking sense of achievement students cannot improve their communicative competence.
