About Me

Merhaba! I’m Dilek, a certified Turkish teacher from İstanbul, and a native speaker of Turkish. I've been teaching Turkish as a second language for five years now, two years being at the French consulate in Istanbul, and the remaining in various contexts like universities, one-on-one settings, and online platforms. I received my bachelor degree in Translation and Interpreting from one of the top universities in Turkey. I’ve been giving private lessons for more than ten years. I like art, music, reading, films, food, etc. and I'm a language learner myself.

-You might have no idea, no previous knowledge about Turkish whatsoever;
-Or you might have some basic knowledge already, thanks to some Turkish TV shows you've been enjoying, or a language course you attended some years ago;
-Or you might be an advanced learner already, wishing to keep your current level in shape or improve it even more by regular speaking, listening, writing and reading practice with the help of a professional...
You are all welcome! During classes, I will encourage you to speak and use what you’ve learnt actively starting from the very first moment, even if you are a complete beginner. I like teaching in a friendly, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I plan lessons considering all kinds of skills like reading, listening, writing, and speaking. But the main content and speed of the lessons focus on your needs. In addition to a main course book, I make use of extra exercises, homework, activities, pictures, drawings, games, videos, songs, and so on, using authentic material whenever possible.

Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions in mind, or simply book a free trial lesson! Görüşmek üzere...
