Launch for Turkish Language Course
Wednesday 06 May 2009
Exeter Airport was the venue for the launch of the University of Exeter’s Foreign Language Centre ‘Holiday Turkish’ course. Passengers at the airport were given a free taster of key expressions and phrases to help prepare them for their holiday.
Turkish tutor Anil Lee, who originally hails from Istanbul and has been resident in Exeter for more than 20 years, was delighted by the positive reaction she got from passengers. “I’ve never known so much interest in Turkey as a holiday destination” she said, “and more and more people are taking up language courses in Turkish to help make their holiday that extra bit special”.
The Foreign Language Centre is offering both ‘Holiday Turkish’ and ‘Holiday Spanish courses; aimed at those holidaying abroad and those who want to brush up on essential language skills. Classes will be very practical and fun, with the focus on everyday and holiday situations, such as travel, food and eating, shopping and getting around. Courses last 16 hours in total, over 8 evenings in June.
Jamie Christon, Exeter Airport’s Managing Director said: “The launch of the course ties in with the start of our summer flights to Bodrum and Dalaman which have doubled and, with the pound going further than some of the more traditional Euro-destinations and almost guaranteed sunshine, there’s never been a better time to head off to Turkey.”
Turkey is now firmly placed in the top 10 of world travel destinations, welcoming more than 23 million visitors every year. With a range of spectacular resorts to choose from, Turkey offers a blend of relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere, historical architecture and a vast array of fantastic beaches.
