Why Izmir? Turkey's third-largest city is looped around the azure-blue Bay of İzmir ...
and has been an important Aegean port since ancient times. It was founded by the Greeks, taken over by the Romans and rebuilt by Alexander the Great before becoming part of the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century. The province boasts more than one UNESCO World Heritage Sites, several archaeological museums, many beautiful sandy beaches and harbours with plenty of opportunity for water sports and boat trips. Izmir gives visitors the chance to embrace Turkey's vibrant culture and delicious cuisine, which blends both ancient and modern and influences from both the east and the west can be found.

Very friendly and accommodating teacher. She was able to explain everything super well and understandably on a low-threshold basis. The atmosphere was pleasant and all questions were addressed. I felt in good hands here! The assistance by Tanja was also great and I felt very well accompanied.

I was fortunate that I was the only beginner due to the effects of the Corona and had a dedicated, careful teacher. She was able to include my interests and so the week went by in a flash. I now have a certain overview and can use very simple conversation in everyday life. It would be good if the school had the technical means that you can also hear your own pronunciation.
Everything simple and perfect

Turkish was spoken most of the time. Only new grammar was explained in English. The teachers are all very nice and helpful. Even if there are problems outside the school, they will help you.

I liked everything very much. The teachers were extremely warm, absolutely patient, fit in their field and in a good mood every day. The teaching layout is also great. 3 x 1.5 hours and breaks in between works well. Since we were very quick with the teaching material, I learned a lot in the 2 weeks! I'll be back next year !!! :)

The teacher, lesson.
There is no library and the material (copies) are not very readable either. The accommodations (prices) are overpriced. There are no apartments as advertised on the website. The accommodation is always in apartments with the apartment owner who also lives there himself. So similar to a WG! Is really great if you have a newer building, but set too high by the price.

Very nice ladies; My 4 stars for 'quality of teaching' does not relate to the teachers, but to my own language progress. I do not know what might help me make better progress.
