Summary/Abstract: Difficulties about the problem of bilingualism and first language teaching have been present in Hungarian primary and secondary schools in Slovakia for decades now. In my study, I propose exercises in which I use language samples taken from social me-dia websites as sources for tasks for elementary and high school students for learning and having discussions about Hungarian language use, i.e. language interactions, in-terference, bilingualism and Slovakisms. The reason for taking language samples from social media websites is that Internet use as well as presence and communication on social media websites are integral parts of students’ everyday lives. Therefore these texts can have great motivational power in the classroom.
