Fun and easy going person Looking forward to the next lesson
Hele goede docente!
I can definitely recommend Cigdem as a turkish teacher. She adapts to your learning speed very well. As a native speaker she naturally masters the language and can clearly explain concepts that are not very obvious to non-turkish speakers.
Cigdem is a great teacher who takes the time to integrate learnings with real-life discussions. For example, we spend 10 minutes at the start of each lesson and throughout the course of the lesson an extra 15-20 minutes having a chat about subjects including work and life in order to be able to apply all the theoretical learnings to the actual language.
Erg tevreden over de werkwijze van Ciğdem. Ze is praktisch, denkt goed mee en is hulpvaardig en flexibel en dat vind ik belangijk. Heel aardig en vriendelijk in de omgang. We hopen dat we echt meters kunnen maken met Turkse les en dat de vorderingen op korte termijn te horen zijn. Çigdem geeft ons nu in ieder geval een vertrouwd gevoel en we zijn blij dat we met haar samenwerken.
...
Nederlands voor kinderen Dutch for kids at beginning level. Mostly focused on the expat families to help their kids get into the language. As a pre-school and/or early phase lessons to teach the basics of the language, as well as practical dialogues.
I currently work as a private language teacher in Belgium and I have a good level of English. As I am not a native speaker, I do not give advanced lessons. People from any age, including kids, can follow my English lessons for levels A1, A2 and B1.

Selam! Turkish lessons from a native speaker in Leuven
Merhaba! This class is for learning Turkish. The main focus of this class is to learn how to communicate with a person who knows Turkish (possibly a native speaker) and understand an article or a news. Furthermore, it provides you to exercise your Turkish by speaking with a native speaker. If you are an absolute beginner, don't worry, I would choose a person who doesn't know Turkish at all as my student.

Turkish as a second language from a language expert
I am partly from Turkey and therefore Turkish is a second native language for me. I can help you with any kind of special request in learning Turkish. I believe most people are learning this language to run a daily conversation before they go to Turkey as a tourist or before their assignment to Turkey. In both cases you very welcome to ask my assistance.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher Living in Istanbul-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 16 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u senior museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!

Fluent Turkish Lessons for Everyday Use From a Native Speaker
This class is for those who would like to be comfortable at the everyday use of the Turkish language. From the basic and appropriate ways of introduction to more complex discussions, I will focus on grammar and pronunciation, as well as the cultural aspect of the language. In the process of learning and using a language, it is fundamental to get deeper in the traditional sayings, proverbs and natural assimilations of the expressions, both to be more comprehensible and familiar in the conversation and to understand the essence of that culture and its people. And this is a very convenient skill for building strong relationships both in personal life and in professional life. Therefore I will go beyond the technical, towards a more culture-oriented approach in my teaching and I believe it is the most efficient in the long term familiarization of a language.

Private Turkish Lessons - Language Learning for Everyone
Learning Turkish language is like puzzling due to its grammatical structure, which completely differs from Indo-European languages. Therefore, even if you are not going to use the language professionally or in your daily life, it is such a hilarious hobby. I have just completed my Master of Science and started to live with my boyfriend in Zurich. Therefore, I want to be more in contact with people and share all my knowledge with people from different ages. I am available to adjust the learning schedules according to your plans. Also, I am open to hear any different opinion regarding the lessons.
