4,000 people attend Turkish language courses in Skopje

Turkey’s cultural institute director in North Macedonia’s capital Skopje said that approximately 4,000 people have attended Turkish language courses over the past 10 years.

Speaking to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency, Serhat Kula said the Yunus Emre Institute will mark its 10th anniversary in the city soon.     

Evaluating the projects and works the institute had carried out, Kula said that they come up with different ideas all the time.     

Referring to Turkish language education in North Macedonia, Kula said that this is one of the regions where Turkish is most needed.     

“Turkish is one of our most important elements here. On this occasion, we continue to carry out cultural diplomacy, our people work here to improve their Turkish to be employed,” said Kula.     

Kula also said that they wanted to reach more people at state schools.     

“Our aim is to have Macedonians, Bosnians, Albanians or people whose mother tongue is not Turkish,” said Kula.     

He added that approximately 4,000 people have attended their language courses at the institute over the 10-year period.
