About Işıl

Merhaba! :)
It has always been a passion for me to learn about different languages and cultures. From my personal experience, I can say that understanding a specific culture requires the ability of speaking the language.

For instance, imagine yourself speaking Turkish while you are in Turkey; in restaurants, taxis, markets, shops,... Your travelling experience becomes a completely different experience by interacting people in their native language. It helps you to socialise, bargain(!), to learn more about people and creates different perspectives in your mind. Even a "Merhaba" is highly appreciated in Turkey but if you choose having Turkish lessons with me, I can assure you to have longer conversations with Turkish people.

I teach Turkish at all levels. In our first lesson we can find out your level and we can talk about your needs and goals. We can set a plan and start studying together to reach your language target!

Teaching Approach

1- Organising a course around communicative, integrative tasks with good planning is very important. For that reason; authenticity, real world communication and meaningful tasks have a very significant role in my classes.

2- The lessons go from simple to more complex. Instead of focusing on intensive grammar, we focus on creating a student based environment where the natural spoken language is used. Vocabulary and grammar points are highlighted within listening and reading activities during the class.

3- Materials are sent before the lesson to supply the learning process and after the lesson I send another material which summarises what is studied during the lesson.

I am a helpful and supportive language teacher. I encourage and support my students to reach their fullest potential to enjoy and make the best of their learning experience.
