One of the Danish favorite destination is Turkey. We make pilgrimages there summer after summer and absorb the culture to us or lie and soak at the beach. But have you ever thought that it might be interesting to know what they are talking about when you get going on the market or along the street in Alanya or Istanbul?

With Turkish, you now have the opportunity. You can learn both the language and culture better known, and thus make you better and be accepted more in society. Everyone loves the when you can speak their native language.

Turkish is an exciting study where you have the opportunity to learn about the history of Turkey from the Ottoman Empire to the secular republic country is today. Turkey has been the scene of some wars and regional conflicts, but in the 21st century marked by stability and is on the threshold of joining the European Union.

Just about joining the EU, there is much political palaver and polymik into play, which can make it very interesting and relevant to have an education in Turkish. With a degree in Turkish will namely have an advantage in any negotiations, if you choose a political or economic way as subsidiary subject to your Turkish studies.

In the study you read Turkey's history and learn about the religious conditions that have created the culture and tradition that is prevalent in Turkey today. You can also analyze the political agenda that characterizes Turkey, and economic conditions and consumer culture, which is characterized by the Turkish community. Central to the study is of course that you learn to speak, read and write Turkish.
