We are providing Turkish classes in NYC. We are a boutique language school located in Tribeca, New York. We take teaching passionately and provide a structured teaching environment with small class sizes and an emphasis on individual attention with extensive conversational aspects. We use English only when it is necessary to explain grammatical structure and semantics.
We are eager to develop our structure and teaching techniques with your inputs and feedback.
If necessary with enough demand, we can customize the program for you. Our goal is to provide you a fresh learning experience and constantly strive to make your individual experience better.
