    • Abstract:
      The education of intercultural competencies and the related skills are at the forefront of teaching at Debrecen University. The teaching materials are based on the work of esteemed authors like Hofstede, Hall, and Trompenaars. However, new cultural and social realities evolve, and educators of intercultural communication need to be responsive to these changes. The article discusses recent surveys carried out by the Budapest College of Communication, Business, and Arts in Budapest in 2004-2012 and SCOPE Intercultural Communication Services LLC (of which the first author is a member) in 2007-2017 on the transformation of the typical features in Hungarian culture, using Hofstede's (1983) original four indices and some additional ones developed by Hall and Hall (1990) and Smith, Dugan, and Trompenaars (1996). The study compares these findings with Hofstede's (1983) corresponding results on Hungary. The authors have found significant differences between the two sets of results and attempted to identify the underlying causes. The paper emphasises the significance of these new findings in raising intercultural awareness in Hungary and Europe in the global framework, and use them as a basis for teaching intercultural competencies through language learning for students.
