About Turkish language
How are classes conducted?
Our Turkish classes are carried out in a comfortable, relaxed environment, so that you can learn at ease. A highly qualified teacher will guide you through each course, using all the latest methods to make sure that you are exposed to all of the four key language skills during every session. Students practice reading and writing skills at their level of competency. Listening exercises are conducted every lesson through audio CDs, in order to develop your ear for Turkish. Speaking skills are a central focus throughout the course, given that speaking is the greatest practical use of language. Our teachers aid the students in using as much Turkish as they learn. As any experienced language learner or instructor knows, it is definitely practice that makes perfect when it comes to learning a language. For that reason, classes are given for two hours daily, five days a week – to ensure our students constant practice and exposure to the Turkish language.
General Turkish courses are taught using the “Gökkusagi Türkçe Ögretim Seti” student books, Grammar books and workbooks from the Dilset publications. Each book is packed full of exercises covering real-world topics incorporating vocabulary, grammar, writing, reading comprehension, listening, speaking and pronunciation skills. Along with the book and workbook, you will also receive a corresponding CD-ROM, so that you can further practice your skills and enhance your Turkish-learning experience beyond the classroom.
