Kick-start your new year’s resolution to learn a new language by taking a FREE Turkish course in January at Eton Institute. The Dubai-based Institute offers an entire beginner level of a featured language FREE every month as part of their CSR initiative to promote diversity and culture.
Eton Institute, the largest hub for language learning in the UAE, is offering a free course in the Turkish language throughout the month of January for those interested in taking a leap into the mystical culture of this wonderful country. This course, covering an entire beginner level in the language, will be offered absolutely for free to the public, as part of the language institute’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) mission to promote language diversity and cross-cultural appreciation.
Dr. Eli Abi Rached, Director of Eton Institute, commented: “The Turkish culture perfectly blends that of the Middle East and Europe, making it both exciting and relatable for learners in the UAE. The language itself is also all about combining, with a root-word being merged with others to form a single term that can convey the same meaning of an entire sentence. The logic and predictability of this makes Turkish a relatively easy language to pick up.”
Since prehistoric times, Turkey has been an important bridge facilitating trade between Europe and the Middle East. Today, Turkey is an emerging economy, positioned uniquely between the East and the West both culturally and geographically, offering thousands of opportunities to a Turkish-speaking workforce. Also, a popular tourist destination, visitors are warmly welcomed to its bustling bazaars and opulent palaces.
Keen to indulge in Turkish delight? Learn the language of the mighty Ottomans and beguiling belly-dancers so you can truly appreciate the pleasures of Turkey’s enchanting music, aromatic food and spectacular architecture. With a culture rich in art, a history steeped in diverse heritage, and a present interweaving the traditional and contemporary, learning Turkish will open your eyes to an exotic new experience.
So give 2011 a great start by stepping into the mystical realm of the whirling dervishes!
