Merhaba! Welcome to “Türkçe”. Turkish belongs to the Altay branch of the Ural-Altaic linguistic family, just like Finnish and Hungarian. It has evolved a lot since then. You’ll learn Turkish using the book ‘Istanbul’ or ‘Yeni Hitit-1’ with additional material from your teacher Melike. You’ll not only learn the language, but will also talk about amazing Turkish food, Turkish culture and traditions and maybe some politics in the classes! As we say in Turkish: ‘One language one person, thousand languages thousand people.’ Tesekkürler!
All of the Turkish courses are planned offline, with safety measures in place. We hope to have them offline for the full duration, but if governmental policies change/safety becomes an issue, we might move them (temporarily) back online.
We aim to keep our courses accessible for as many people as possible. There is a discount for people who need it and you can pay our extra fee if you would like to support our lessons for refugees in cooperation with ASKV. More information.
