"On January 16th, we will start our new Turkish courses at no charge," YEE’s U.S. Director, Halid Bulut told Anadolu Agency Wednesday. "These courses bring people from all ages and backgrounds together from across the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area."
He said the books and curriculum for these courses are prepared by the Yunus Emre Institute, which make learning Turkish easier at any level.
Describing the participation and the interest in Turkish courses as "very good", Bulut stated that the institute's goal is to introduce Turkish culture and its language throughout the U.S.
"Not only with the Turkish courses but also through various events such as Turkish cinema and Turkish cuisine for the general public and academic institutions," Bulut added.
Yunus Emre Institute hosted over 40 people for its Turkish language courses since they started being offered in the Summer of 2017.
