Teaching Method

BÄ°LGÄ° TĂśRMER uses the following methods by taking into consideration the different learning styles of students who come from many different cultures and countries:

  • Analytic Approach (grammar, text analysis)
  • Creative Drama
  • Role play
  • Presentation

In teaching the four basic skills of language – reading, listening, writing and speaking, the classes use a method known as the “drama method”. This method facilitates retention of information and is often considered to be more entertaining and straightforward. The drama method helps to accelerate the learning process by making use of body language and imagination when practicing phonological elements such as stress, intonation and rhythm.

There are various additional learning aids used to support the courses. In the classroom, projectors and audio systems are used. In addition, native Turkish speakers are often invited to classes to enable real-life simulations in a fun and relaxed environment.

The objective for attendees of all levels is to improve their use and understanding of Turkish in situations where they require it in daily life (social occasions and daily interactions). An additional target is to enable reading texts and improving comprehension skills; writing ideas, thoughts, and feelings; and proceeding to learn the language after having completed the Turkish grammar course.

The BİLGİ TÜRMER staff includes dynamic and versatile teachers who are continually looking to develop by researching and practicing modern methods. The staff are enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and enjoy the experience of being in a language-teaching environment. At the center, the focus is not just on the technical side of language, but also on fields where language intersects with real life and culture. Hence, classroom activities are supplemented by trips in Istanbul, where speaking activities about the places visited are carried out over a cup of traditional tea or Turkish coffee. During trips, participants have the opportunity to apply the linguistic material they have pre-studied to real-life cases. Furthermore, in situations where they run into difficulties, they can ask for the teacher’s help. The trip experiences are discussed extensively in class afterwards, paving the way for the participants to experience better communication in daily life.
