Participants followed a strict timetable for their special areas, primary, secondary or adult. There were 6 primary, 4 secondary and 2 adult groups where the material was carefully selected to suit the level.

In the primary sections, for example there was a greater concentration on creativity and practical skills graduating to a much more intellectual, grammar based approach for the adults with motivational aspects included.

The type of sessions are listed below, the morning being taken up with workshop/lectures (2 x 90 minutes) and the afternoon with two plenaries (2 x 60 minutes) held either in the main hall with everyone participating or in two sections, one in the hall and one in the 'diszterem'.
