Students accepted into the Turkish Flagship Program are assigned tutors who are native speakers of Turkish. While meetings with Turkish conversation partners take place outside of class, they reinforce classroom learning.
Once you complete your third year of Turkish (Advanced Turkish), sessions with tutors are devoted to learning terminology specific to your fields of interest. Whenever possible, advanced students are paired with conversation partners with expertise in their chosen field.
As your language skills grow, so does your knowledge of Turkish culture and history. Your tutors bring individualized attention to your language learning. They also deepen your understanding by sharing their own stories about life in the region.
