Interactive Turkish classes in NYC
If you are looking for a conversation-focused and affordable Turkish class in NYC, you have come to the right place. We have been offering fun and interactive Turkish classes in New York at affordable prices since 2005. Besides our group classes, we have also been offering private Turkish lessons at all levels.
We invite you to get a taste of Turkey and Turkish culture by learning Turkish in the NYC Turkish Club without breaking the bank.
** New online Turkish classes **
The NYC Turkish Club is proud to launch its new online Turkish teaching program with two new online classes in January. Our online Turkish classes will enable anyone from anywhere in the world to learn Turkish in a highly interactive and effective live virtual class in the comfort of his or her own home or office.
Why learn Turkish with us?
Our goal is to provide you with the best value in New York City by offering the highest quality language education at the lowest price possible. We aim to achieve this goal by offering you the following advantages:
Sitting long hours in class or cramming for a long time outside of class will not necessarily make you learn any language faster. In contrast, you may start feeling weary and end up losing your motivation and interest after a while. Unfortunately, many people begin their language education with enthusiasm, but then they start feeling burned out and end up dropping their class before they get fluent.
Your time is important to us and we aim to achieve a high level of productivity both inside and outside of our classroom by using scientific techniques. We teach you scientific learning and memory improvement techniques in your first class and then, we encourage you to use them effectively throughout the semester.
Furthermore, our carefully prepared lesson plans and in and after-class activities and assignments are all designed with having productivity and making good use of your time in mind.
We also aim to create a fun and positive environment in our Turkish classes, where you can learn a lot while having fun and not realize how time flies. Our classes never get boring because of the interactive teaching style of your teacher.
Have you ever taken a language class for a few years and never gotten to the point, where you could speak it fluently? We know the feeling!
In NYC Turkish Club, we know that the best way to learn a language is by speaking it and thus, we specialize in building speaking skills and teach you how to speak Turkish. Our goal is to make you fluent in two years.
We created our own language teaching approach based on the communicative approach. Communicative language teaching emphasizes all four skills - reading, writing, speaking, and listening - although there is a special focus on speaking and listening skills. Hence, our Turkish classes are designed with a special emphasis on improving your speaking, listening, and pronunciation skills.
Most language teachers think in their native language when they make their lesson plans and teach their classes accordingly.
On the contrary, our teaching methodology and lesson plans are specifically tailored to the thinking pattern of an English speaking audience with lots of empathy. Complex constructions are broken down into simple pieces and explanations are to the point. Students never feel lost in class and they set the pace rather than the teacher. You can read more about our teaching methodology here.
Given the expensive language class fees in NYC, we want to make our Turkish classes accessible to every New Yorker. Thus, we made learning Turkish cheaper than learning any other foreign language in NYC.
We currently charge only USD 250 for our online classes and this fee covers all the expenses, including the class materials.
We usually offer the same class on two different days of the week for each level. If this is the case, students are welcome to make up a missed class by taking the other class that week.
We continuously monitor our students' individual progress through in-class observation and interaction as well as with the help of a curriculum-based monitoring test at the end of each semester.
We also benchmark their individual performances in an attempt to identify the opportunities for improvement. This process does not only help our students improve their performances, but it also enables us to raise the quality standards of our Turkish language education.

Your teacher matters!
Teaching is like a stage performance and engaging the audience as well as keeping the attention span are among your teacher’s primary goals in our classroom. Your teacher, Mustafa Dogru, hails from Istanbul, Turkey and he has been teaching Turkish language classes in NYC off and on since 2005.
Mustafa loves teaching and he is passionate about languages. As a language and travel enthusiast, he pursued his passion for learning and teaching languages, while immersing himself in local cultures around the world – being a polyglot, he studied eight languages and also taught English in Guatemala, Ecuador, and Myanmar on a voluntary basis besides teaching Turkish in New York for many years.
During his travels, Mustafa crossed all six continents ‘overland ‘ – without taking a plane – on separate trips (see his route) and he recently came back from a several year-long photography trip around the world covering 43 countries on a single trip. You can find more information about his travels and photography here.
“People often get frustrated and quit learning languages before becoming fluent due to lack of strategy. Your teacher is a polyglot, who studied eight languages, and he will be guiding you to fluency via the shortest route”
Our classes in the media
The Turkish classes in the NYC Turkish Club were featured as a full segment in two languages by two different TV shows. The first one was by Yeni Ufuklar TV Show on the Turkish state TV channel TRT and it was broadcast in Turkey in 2007.
The second one was broadcast in the United States via satellite by the New York-based Turkish Hour TV Show in 2008 and you can watch their clip “Learning Turkish in New York” above (courtesy of the Turkish Hour TV Show).
Our Midtown location
Our classes meet in a classroom with a whiteboard at 38 West 32nd Street (32nd Street and Broadway) in Midtown Manhattan. It is just a short walk away from the 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, B, D, F, M, N, Q, and R trains as well as the Path train and the Penn Station.
“In each class, you will strengthen your speaking skills and follow a powerful strategy to learn Turkish more effectively”
