Courses for General Purpose

Courses are available as two options; a) 1-month 40 hours (10 hours a week) b) 2-month 48 hours (6 hours a week). Upon request, tailor-made courses are also offered.

12-level Arabic courses consist of 6 basic, 4 intermediate and 2 upper-intermediate levels. Lessons are taught in accordance with the European Language Portfolio requirements. Students reach the level of B2 upon the completion of standard education. C1 courses are also available upon request.

Upon completion of basic and intermediate levels, students are given a certificate. A “TÖMER Diploma” approved by the President of Ankara University is given to students completing upper-intermediate level successfully.

We employ student-centred eclectic approach, where lecturers are moderators, and every student has equal right to speak and is required to be active throughout the lesson. Lessons are taught in Arabic. Four main language skills, Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, and grammar as a sub-skill are equally included in lessons.

Al-Arabiyye lil Hayat and Al-Kavaid al Müyessere and Workbooks, listening CD’s and DVD’s and supplementary exercise booklets, prepared by TÖMER Arabic Department, are used in general purpose Arabic courses. Our course books equally focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in accordance with the Common European Framework.

Courses for Specific Purposes

Courses for YDS, the exams of some official and private institutions, and general translation are available upon demand. In these courses, common test techniques and grammar skills are studied.

Speaking Club and Speaking Classes

Speaking clubs are available for our students at different hours. Various topics of interest are discussed among students under the supervision of experienced Turkish and native speaker lecturers. These classes are free of charge for TÖMER students.

We also offer courses focusing solely on speaking as a course for specific purpose

Final Exams

At the end of the course period students take the final exam aimed at assessing the four main language skills. Should a student fail one of the skills of the exam, he/she can take a make-up exam. However, failure in more than one skill requires the repetition of the course.
