Lesson structure

Each lesson is organised in such a way that time is allocated for developing listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. Writing skills are mostly developed through assignments and teacher feedback on assignments. Each lesson starts with a short repetition of the previous lesson, the subject of the week (specified by the curriculum) is discussed, and speaking, listening and writing activities on the new subject are covered with the aid of lecture notes prepared by the teacher for that lesson. During the lesson, teacher-student and student-student interactive activities take place (often using breakout rooms). Finally, towards the end of the lesson, students' questions are answered and homework to be completed by the next lesson is given. Before enrolling on any of our courses please read the terms and conditions.

Students Testimonials

Fiona

Fun and tailored learning! I really enjoy my Turkish lessons with School of Turkish. I've made great progress since I started the lessons and the way the teacher tailors the learning to my needs has helped me improve my Turkish quickly.

I am proficient in a number of languages and have studied with quite a few teachers and language schools. My Turkish language studies count amongst the most effective and most enjoyable of these experiences. My teacher has not only been excellent but also paid attention to my particular strengths and weaknesses and made sure that my studies have been enjoyable and interesting. Highly recommended.

My learning experience with my Turkish language teacher has been both very rewarding and very enjoyable. In gradual increments over the last two years I have increased my capabilities in Turkish such that I hope in the near future to visit Turkey and be able to hold reasonable conversations. The course is not easy and demands continual efforts, because Turkish is no easy language to acquire for the English speaker. However, under the tutelage of my teacher I have been able to acquire both a wide range of grammatical constructions and a significant vocabulary. The focus is not only on reading, writing and speaking, but also the cultural context of the Turkish language, historical and contemporary. I thoroughly recommend my teacher and the course taught, for the skills with which I have been provided in Turkish, as well as the enjoyment I have had whilst learning it.

Kübra's private lessons were enjoyable and well structured, they gave me confidence to speak to my family in law. I learned a lot about Turkish traditions during our classes. I would certainly recommend Kübra's lessons to anyone who is looking to improve the Turkish language skills but also is interested to learn more about the culture.

I feel that Kübra earnestly wants to help me improve my Turkish, she is patient, clear, warm and friendly. I am so happy I have found the school, there has simply been nothing like it around. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

The School of Turkish runs a variety of Turkish language courses to suit all levels and abilities. The lessons are not only challenging, but also well planned, extremely engaging and great fun. Kübra is a very dedicated, passionate teacher, who has boundless energy and limitless patience. I unreservedly recommend The School of Turkish to anyone wanting to learn Turkish or improve their Turkish.

I had the grammar course with School of Turkish and I really benefited a lot. The lessons were very well structured and touched upon various topics that we needed to learn at our level. Not only this, but the way the lessons were delivered was very informative and enjoyable. What I liked the most is that every rule we learned was practiced instantly via different methods, and that was very helpful for me. The effort made in preparing the lessons was very clear; thanks to Kübra hoca for that, and for delivering an excellent course :)

I'm very happy that I took the decision to continue my Turkish journey with the School of Turkish. Kübra is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher who is invested in the progress of her students. She is also organised and experienced, which comes through in her curricula and lesson plans. Tavsiye edilir!
