Your teacher matters!

All Turkish classes are taught by Mustafa Dogru, the founder of the NYC Turkish Club. Mustafa is a polyglot, an intrepid world traveler and a photographer, who hails from Istanbul, Turkey. He also lived in Brazil, Colombia, and Germany, and has traveled all six continents ‘overland’ (without taking a plane) – he recently came back from a several year-long photography trip around the world covering about 40 countries in one trip.

Why learn Turkish?

Turkish is easier to learn than most non-Latin based languages. Because, it is regular and phonetic. Moreover, it uses the Latin alphabet and it is a fun language to learn.

It belongs to one of the primary language families that includes more than 35 Turkic languages. This language family is spoken in a wide geographical area that spans from Eastern Europe all the way to China. Hence, learning Turkish opens the door to a vast territory of significant geopolitical importance with more than 200 million speakers. Read more…
