Why learn Turkish?
Situated on the crossroads between the European and Asian continents, Turkey is a vast, varied and beautiful country with a hospitable and friendly population.
The country is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, boasting beaches, bazaars, mountains and metropolises bursting with a rich and ancient culture!
The growing importance of Turkey on the world stage and the shifting balance of power means that European businesses need to adjust to and prepare themselves for the new circumstances. A grasp of the Turkish language and business culture is an invaluable bonus to any interaction or negotiation when dealing in Turkey or with Turkish businesses.
The Turkish language is a beautiful sounding language – from the Turkic family of languages – and uses a latin script, is easy to read and is logically structured. Famous for its vowel harmonisation, the language flows and lilts effortlessly off the tongue.
