Reviews

Use of native speakers and authentic cultural materials in the photos and videos make the target language and culture come alive for the learner...a very effective tool for the teaching and learning of Turkish.”
Yesim Kesli, Texas Tech University

Critical Language Series: Intermediate Turkish DVD-ROM is a very effective tool for the teaching and learning of Turkish. It is full of authentic texts, pictures, audios, or sentences used in the lessons’ text and grammar tutorials and is very useful and effective in teaching grammar, vocabulary and culture. It also teaches pronunciation in an effective way, most particularly in respect to vowel harmony.” —CALICO Review
