ONLINE TURKISH CLASSES

Online Turkish classes at Concept Languages generally meet once or twice a week for a minimum of three months, but may continue for as long as there is a quorum of students. For general acquisition of Turkish, our small online classes offer our dynamic curriculum and professional instructors through Zoom.

Enrollment for our regular programs is continuous throughout the academic year. Before joining a group, new students will meet with one of our instructors on Zoom who will conduct a level assessment consisting of a casual conversation.

ONLINE GRAMMAR AND CONVERSATION

Concept Languages’ informal clubs offer the opportunity for additional review of grammatical points and for guided Turkish practice. The weekly program is available at Concept Languages on Facebook, or by subscribing to our mailing list. These clubs are free for currently enrolled students and open to the public for a fee. Participants are welcome to attend whenever they have time and the subject is relevant to them. Regular attendance is not obligatory.

ONLINE PRIVATE LESSONS

Concept Languages offers online private Turkish lessons for individuals or groups, including intensive programs for business professionals and diplomats. The curriculum and pace are tailored to your needs, and may focus on general language acquisition, business or academic Turkish, grammar, or conversation.

You may schedule as many or as few hours a week as you like. At the end of each month of coursework, you’ll be issued a detailed progress report documenting the lessons and concepts covered.

METHODOLOGY AND CURRICULUM FOR ONLINE LESSONS

The curriculum for both online and face to face lessons at Concept Languages is a synthesis of communicative and task-based language teaching. These approaches emphasize meaningful interaction over rote memorization. Students participate in discussions and role playing that mimic real-life situations. At the same time, we recognize that our clients’ needs are diverse, and the small class size at Concept Languages allows us to incorporate relevant authentic texts and students’ own experiences into classroom activities.

INSTRUCTORS AT CONCEPT LANGUAGES

Our experienced instructors are college graduates, have CELTA or equivalent certification, and are native speakers of Turkish. All are fluent in at least one other language. Moreover, instructors have been trained to teach remotely.
