Turkish language introductory courses now offered

This course will focus on the foundation of Turkish grammar and vocabulary by the use of the four language abilities (listening, speaking, reading, and writing).

Turkish is one of the top 20 most commonly spoken languages in the world. About 75 million people speak Turkish. The Republic of Turkey is strategically connected, geographically and culturally, to Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. There are other communities of speakers in the Balkans and the Caucasus, and several very large Turkish immigrant communities in Western Europe, with Germany as one of the most relevant examples.

The Department of Religion and Classics will now offer an introductory course to the Turkish language.
