Testimonials form Past students
The course was well organized and well conducted. Each class reviewed past lessons and built upon the previous lectures which provided good continuity from week to week.
The culture that was brought out through the language was the best part. Kenan bey always related what we were learning to some real part of Turkey or some history as to where some language came from.
I do recommend it because it's enjoyable but also convenient for those who are working full time.
Kenan Top is outstanding teacher. Small class size helps individualized learning. We learned a lot this semester; I really feel like I am making progress. Nice, also, to have break with turkish tea and treats.
Very good atmosphere, very good teaching method.
Very Professional. Well put together. informative.
This was a course focusing on the fundamentals of Turkish. There was much time devoted to an explanation of and the practicing of basic principles of Turkish grammar and structure. Additionally, there was time devoted to aspects of Turkish culture as they arose. Frequently, Turkish television commercials were used both to change the pace of the class and to develop listening comprehension skills.
The instructor's presentation of the grammatical concepts was always clear and to the point. We had numerous written opportunities to practice the principles that had been introduced, absolutely essential to assimilating the fundamentals of a language as suffix-rich as Turkish. As a native speaker of Turkish, the instructor had complete control of his own language while also possessing an outstanding knowledge of English, allowing him to explain the concepts in terms that native speakers of English could easily comprehend. He was extremely patient at all times and unceasingly polite, considerate, understanding, and helpful. Providing us all on a regular basis with cookies, tea, and assorted other Turkish delicacies, he was the epitome of Turkish hospitality.
Yes, I would definitely recommend the course to others. Kenan Top is a knowledgeable instructor, understands both his subject and his students, and does a very good job of creating a comfortable, non-threatening environment in the classroom. This is essential to successful foreign language instruction.
The small class sizes offered by Rumi Forum foster an excellent learning environment with personalized attention and maximized participation. And the course instructor teaches not only the Turkish language—he also teaches about Turkish culture, the linguistic origins of certain words, and many helpful idioms and famous proverbs.
I greatly enjoyed the small class size and the course instructor’s teaching skills. In terms of dislikes, I got nothing!
Yes, I would highly recommend this course to others. The price is very fair, the teaching quality is outstanding, and the class environment is very attentive and enables learning. We even get tea and snacks at every class!
Why Learn Turkish?
The idea of learning Turkish is strange for most American learners; but that rapidly changes to a sense of excitement as soon as the career opportunities and adventure of Turkey are discovered. Its central connections to Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East make doing business in Turkey a necessity.
Since pre-historic times, Turkey has been the vital bridge between Europe and the Middle East. Its mighty Ottoman Empire consolidated much of Eastern Europe and the Middle East into one great civilization until the early 20th century. The flavor of Turkish culture is richly cosmopolitan, a sophisticated mix of ancient traditions in a contemporary Geist.
For Americans, Turkey's liberal and intellectual climate bridging East and West, traditional and modern, is a comforting environment. Learning Turkish gives access to many new opportunities for business, scientific and technological research, and for scholarship and journalism. Currently, students in Turkey are learning English at a record rate, while few Americans learn Turkish: to offset that imbalance of skill and opportunity, there is great need for Americans to meet the creative challenge of learning Turkish.
