- What’s On
Şule Hizal Mixon and Arzu Sekirden Döven co-founded Concept Languages, a Turkish language school established in 2001. Concept Langauges quickly made a name for itself among Istanbul’s expatriate business professionals, diplomats, and academics whose work requires an exacting proficiency in the Turkish language. Drawing on a decade of experience coaching their high-level clients, Şule and Arzu devised a flexible curriculum intended as an alternative to cookie-cutter approaches to language instruction used in franchise schools.
In this tradition, they have prepared Take Away Turkish, a pocket manual for the busy student of Turkish. User-friendly, functional, fun, and pressure-free, Take Away Turkish is not your typical teach yourself manual. The book is organized by the contexts in which you will use Turkish in day-to-day social encounters and provides basic communication skills that allow you a greater appreciation of the language and culture. In addition to being a practical introduction to the Turkish language, Take Away Turkish may also be used as a grammar reference manual or even as a pocket phrase book. It’s designed both for serious and casual study, at your desk or on the bus. There’s no wrong way to use it. Skip around, review, practice, and enjoy!
