There are currently four levels in Turkish teaching at Turkish Cultural Center.
- A1 level
- A2 level
- B1 level
- B2 level
- C1+ level
The student who completes this stage learns greetings, presenting him/herself, numbers, days, basic derivative and non-derivative suffixes, the present continuous and comparing things or people. Also the student can converse in everyday conversations easily and can ask and answer simple questions.
At the end of this level, our students are competent in using present, past and future tenses, noun phrases, main derivative suffixes, noun clauses and a great deal of vocabulary in a fluent way at everyday conversations. They are able to use some complex phrases and ask and answer some complex questions.
After this stage, our students have no difficulty in expressing themselves in everyday conversation. In addition, they are able to converse and write about more complex topics, like giving commands, expressing necessities, conditionals, and they are able to read newspapers and hear Authentic Turkish on the news or at the TV shows.
At this stage, our students learn all the other tenses, and they start using them all. Presentations are introduced into the classroom, and each student presents a topic at least once, that they have prepared at home. Also at this level, some newspaper and magazine articles, which are more complex, are examined during the lessons. The topics in these articles are discussed in the classroom. After this level is completed, the speech of the student improves and becomes extremely fluent.
We adapt our C1 program to suit the individual’s requirements regarding their selected field of work or their interests. The student’s skill in using the language, both written and oral is improved intensely. During the course, a lot of speaking and discussion practice takes place. Our students, who are successful in the exam at the end of this level, are ready to attend the exams in order to receive diplomas approved by the Ministry of National Education. In the event of a student being offered a place at university, this diploma entitles the student to be exempt from prep class.
