A new language, a new perspective: Learn Turkish from a Silicon Valley Linguist

Methodology

Learn grammar, daily speaking or academic level of understanding and speaking. The curriculum is going to be organized depends on each individuals's needs.

Turkish has a very strong logic. Once you get the logic, learning the language is easier and fun!

Background

I have been working as a linguist since 2011. I worked for several companies and give them a voice in Turkish. I have two current students. I am looking forward to hearing from you to have this new exciting experience.
