Turkish Tutor UCLA’s Turkish Tutor is an instructional program designed to help students understand the Turkish language as people actually speak it in Turkey. It consists of interactive lessons in which you watch short video clips from a popular Turkish TV show and listen to clear audio clips of dialogue and vocabulary.

Students can test listening comprehension with exercises in English and Turkish that are linked to each scene, as well as other types of exercises that cover the lesson as a whole. Watching the Tutorial is recommended, as it provides students with a strategy for getting the most out of the lessons.
