This is a certificated mother-tongue teacher of Turkish language and culture, currently in Ankara. I have been working with three different language schools in Istanbul, and with three in Rome. I completed a program for teaching Turkish as a foreign language at the Marmara University in Istanbul. I am also the Turkish language delegate for Directors Languages based in the UK, and a member of the Turkish team for Innovative Language Learning headquartered in Japan.
I have built an exclusive method for Turkish teaching, being a self-language-learner myself. The lessons are adjustable for any kind of journalistic, touristic, romantic, gastronomic, linguistic, scientific, artistic, religious, historical, cultural, commercial purposes; any level from hello to Ottoman poetry; background of any other language, way of learning, means of learning in person or via the Internet, and age. My spectrum of students expands from children to the CEOs.
Instructions can be in English, Italian and Japanese. If you are interested, contact me kindly. I hope that we can discover this beautiful language and culture together!

Although you are not sure how to say hello in Turkish, my methodology will get you learn all the fundamentals of Turkish language within 15-20 seances.
^Have you already learned the basics but want to put them in practice in order to fasten your speech, correct your pronunciation, or use your abilities in diverse circumstances?
^Are you rather interested in touristic Turkish to provide an efficient communication during your visits in Turkey?
You are welcome!
^Otherwise, you may have a good knowledge in Turkish already, and look for some occasion in action depending on your interests? We can talk about anything you might like. Some of the popular themes I encountered so far are:
-Turkish dramas & romance
-Shopping at Grand Bazaar
-A medical visit to a hospital in Istanbul
-Turkish classical music & poetry
-Touristic destinations & communication in Turkey
-Politics and Turkey's stand for international affairs
-Sufism philosophy and Christianity in Turkey
-Social and gender prospects
-Or any other needs/interests of yours!
It is fine if you want to follow up a frequent program, or want to have an advanced level of context.
*Turkish as a Subject

I am experienced in both.
