To create classroom environments where foreign students can learn Turkish

Not only to teach Turkish language but also to introduce Turkish culture through the language and to organize activities outside the classroom for this purpose

To share information about language teaching by establishing contacts with the language teaching centers both in Turkey and abroad

To present an environment to conduct academic studies on teaching Turkish to foreigners.


The vision of Sinop University Turkish Language Teaching and Research Center is that studies to be carried out in the teaching of a language to foreigners should be qualified both institutionally and in practice. Having such an awareness, our vision is to carry out educational activities to teach Turkish to foreigners according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in the light of scientific and contemporary developments. Sinop University Turkish Language Teaching and Research Center aims to carry out studies in this field and reach new developments and practices in language teaching.
