Private Turkish Lessons

Specifically tailored to meet your requirements.

If you are determined to learn and progress, I will always support you and push you further.

Tailor-made Turkish lessons to meet your requirements

I provide customised Turkish lessons covering different topics depending on each student’s purpose and requirements. For a personalised course programme, I adjust lesson content and format for each student’s needs, occupation, proficiency, and objectives. However, students are always encouraged to come prepared with questions and topics to discuss. 

All lessons focus on five essential skills, regardless of the age and ability of the student:




Speaking fluently


Pronunciation and Accent


Social Communication

Students from all levels and backgrounds are welcome!

I am happy to work with English-speaking children and adults of all levels.

The lessons are suitable for:

Families who wish to improve the Turkish language proficiency of their children and themselves.

Individuals with any background who wish to learn Turkish as a foreign language.

Individuals in need of private Turkish tuition for business purposes.

Students from primary level to university level, who wish to increase their knowledge and gain Turkish communication skills.

Private Turkish lessons are available daytime and evenings, weekdays and weekends. So you can choose the best day and time that works for you.

Lessons for children

I provide tailor-made Turkish lessons for children, aged 5 and above. I always like to praise children both verbally and through little rewards when they work with enthusiasm. I truly believe that positive communication and incentives motivate children to continue their hard work and work even harder next time.

Your children, regardless of their initial knowledge and ability, will learn Turkish through exciting topics and discussions, keeping them motivated throughout their learning.

Our lessons will help your children to:

  • Improve their language skills,
  • Speak, read and understand Turkish,
  • Communicate confidently in Turkish,
  • Strengthen relationships with Turkish-speaking friends and family members.

Where will the lessons take place?

I offer lessons at students’ family homes for children between 5 – 17 years old.

Lessons for adults

Whether you have a Turkish partner, are planning to stay in a Turkish region or work with Turkish colleagues and clients, you presumably would like to communicate confidently in Turkish. I offer tailor-made Turkish lessons based on your communication requirements.

In our sessions, you will learn a lot about the Turkish language and culture, so that at the end of our course you will be able to:

  • Communicate confidently in Turkish within a Turkish speaking environment and with Turkish individuals,
  • Speak, read and understand Turkish with confidence,
  • Strengthen relationships with Turkish-speaking friends, family members or colleagues.

Where will the lessons take place?

Lessons can take place in a public space, such as a library or a coffee shop, whatever is convenient for you.

Private Turkish lessons include free online practice sessions and Q&A email support.

“Learning a new language is the most joyful endeavour, but one of the hardest at the same time. You have to make an effort to achieve it. Therefore you need someone to encourage you, motivate you, make you happy, and who is also passionate about teaching. Begum Acikel is that person in my life.”

Sevval Tasar, Student
