Turkish is spoken by approximately 85 million speakers worldwide. 90% of Turkish speakers are in Turkey and the rest spread over a few countries such as Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus. Turkish is a popular language to learn given its pivotal role between the Middle East and Europe. Turkish is part of the Turkish family of languages, which also includes Gagauz, and Khorasani and Osmanli Turkish. Start learning Turkish by taking one of our Turkish language courses.
Turkish is not related to the other major languages of Europe or the Middle East but instead distantly related to Finnish and Hungarian. Turkey is often referred to as a ‘bridge between the West and the East’ and is a fascinating mix. This is illustrated on the streets of Istanbul by the great variety in dress. Turkey will continue to have geographical strategic importance in the modern world.
