The Hewett Academy

With Hilal Smith
Turkish is a very old language, derived from ancient Turkic Languages in Asia. Because of this it is related to Japanese and Mongolic languages and sounds very different from most European Languages. However, it uses the Latin alphabet and has borrowed vocabulary from French, English, Arabic, Greek and Persian. These features make the process of learning Turkish easier. Moreover, every letter in Turkish has its own individual soundings and when you learn how to sound a letter, it will be the same in any words.

This is the follow on course for students from term 1.


About the tutor

I am a native Turkish speaker, trained as a teacher and taught in Turkey. I’ve been in Norwich for ten years and recently taught Turkish for Norfolk Adult Education and worked at some schools in Norwich.

My home town, Antalya, is a very multicultural, touristic town famous for its beautiful
Mediterranean beaches. In general Turkish people are very welcoming and friendly, and you will receive the same warmness in our Turkish class. I have learnt many things from my previous experiences and believe that creating a positive atmosphere makes for successful learning. You will have lots of opportunities to practise Turkish and be able to see your progress through fun learning activities.
