Turkish Language Courses

Turkish is the official language of Turkey, with approximately 75 million native speakers in Turkey and a considerable minority across south-eastern Europe and western Asia. Turkey has been recently popularised as one of the MINT countries with rapidly developing economies and is an important trade and diplomatic partner for the UK. The British Council have rated Turkish as one of the top 10 most important languages to learn in terms of the UK's future international links.

Over 2.5 million British citizens visit Turkey each year, and there are approximately 500,000 people of Turkish origin resident in the UK.

The Centre for Foreign Language Study offers Turkish from beginners to higher advanced. 

The online Turkish course at Durham University was one of the best learning experiences I’ve had! Being online meant that you can take part from wherever you are and Tuğgen is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had of any subject. The course was taken at a speed that was suitable to the whole class, was well structured with a good mix of both learning and practicing and her friendly and approachable manner made it a really positive learning experience for everyone! I would highly recommend this course!
