Turkish-American Association

General English Courses

Our Teaching Methodology:

Our student-centered approach focuses on developing the four core language skills: Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing. We aim to enable students to understand listening and reading texts and convey this information through speaking and writing.

Instead of rote memorization of grammar rules, we create an environment where students can learn through discovery and application. We are aware that "learning to learn" is a process, and each student has a different learning style. With our educational approach based on the theory of multiple intelligences, we help each student discover their own learning style and apply the most suitable learning method.

In this way, the information learned becomes permanent, and English learning turns into a lifelong learning process that can take place in every area of life. During this process, the instructor acts as a guide who designs the learning environment, conveys information, encourages learning, and facilitates the learning process.

Our Teaching Staff:

At the Turkish American Association, classes are taught by experienced teachers with TEFL certificates. Our teachers possess the most up-to-date knowledge of English teaching techniques and methods and use these techniques effectively in the classroom. Continuously developing their knowledge and vision through regular in-service training and seminars, our teachers provide the highest quality language education to our trainees.
