Course Details

Challenge Yourself: Time to Write

In this programme, we will write a story every week. How would you like to practise writing in Turkish, even if it's just a sentence or two - at work, on the train, while drinking your coffee? You’ll be surprised at where small steps will take you.

Challenge Yourself: Time to Write

There will be 4 tasks in total over the course of one month. The subject of each week will be sent by the teacher along with photos and brief information. The important point here is that the text should not be completed in one sitting, rather it should be completed every day, little by little. Thus, the student will be encouraged to think about their story for a whole week and doing the exercises every day will reinforce current knowledge. Another important point is that mistakes in the teacher's feedback should not be repeated the following week!

The programme is open to A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 level students. Each student’s writing will be evaluated by the teacher according to their level and feedback will be given. 

 

Aims:

  • To learn new vocabulary,
  • To be able to use vocabulary and expressions in the correct contexts,
  • To be able to use grammar structures (suffixes, tenses, etc.) correctly,
  • To improve writing skills and eventually reading and speaking skills,
  • To practise Turkish every day.

 

Points to note about the programme:

  • Every week the text for that week should be sent to the teacher by midday (12.00pm) on Sunday.
  • The teacher will send back the writing on Sunday or Monday with relevant comments.
  • Writing should not be completed once a week. A sentence or two or perhaps a paragraph should be written every day (the length may vary depending on the level).
  • After reading each student’s writing the teacher will send their comments to the students. The students should aim not to make the same mistakes in the following week’s writing exercise.
  • Three meetings will be held with the participants. In the first meeting the participants will be informed about how the programme will progress. The second meeting will be a Q&A session. Students can bring specific questions (about their texts) or general questions and the teacher will answer all of these. A general evaluation will be made in the final meeting.
  • Every day each student will be allowed to ask one question about grammar, vocabulary etc. to the teacher via e-mail or WhatsApp.

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 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!
