ATA-HOUSTON TURKISH LANGUAGE SCHOOL
OPENS ON SEPTEMBER 4TH

1. Semester: September – December (14 Weeks)

2. Semester: February – May (14 Weeks)

Mission

ATA-Houston Turkish Language School is a non-profit institution operating under ATA-Houston that aims to help our students to be individuals with pluralistic values, respectful of different cultures and democratic values, in the guidance of Atatürk’s principles and reforms.

Its primary aim is to teach the values of Turkish culture and the Turkish language to the students and to contribute to raising world citizens who respect individual differences.

Program Information

We’re excited for all children between the ages of 5 and 13 to join us at the ATA-Houston Turkish Language School Zoom platform every Saturday between 10:00 am and 12:00pm.
ATA-Houston Turkish Language School curriculum is based on a communicative approach. The learning engagements are designed around three aspects of language learning:
  • Learn the language
  • Learn about the language
  • Learn through the language
Thus, students will not only learn Turkish, but they will also learn about Turkish cultural heritage in a creative and fun way. In addition, students will be provided developmentally appropriate opportunities with using the language in different disciplines that reflect into their daily lives. We will celebrate our kids in May 2022 with an end of the year performance.

Before the semester starts, all students will go through an assessment to identify their Turkish language levels. In addition to this, parents will fill out a questionnaire about their student/s personality as a learner and Turkish language skills.

Classes

Ages 5 – 7 | Ages 8 – 10 | Ages 11 – 13
The classes will open when we reach the minimum class size of 5 students.
Regular attendance is necessary for a successful Turkish Language School experience. Students who did not attend three or more classes in each semester may lose their spot.
