Haliç University Tömer

About us

Haliç University TÖMER –acronym for Türkçe Öğretim Merkezi- was founded in 2019 with the aim of teaching Turkish Language to foreigners by patterning the language and culture centers of the world.

TÖMER carried out its activities as the first and only institution to teach Turkish as a foreign language in 1980s. In the academic year of 1989-1990, it started teaching English, French and German; then, gradually, along with the many other foreign languages, the Eurasian Turkish Languages are being taught at the moment. These studies in the field of language have enabled TÖMER to gain identity as scientific based language center and to develop new methods and techniques for teaching foreign languages.

TÖMER, which started teaching English, French and German in the year 1989, now teaches Turkish, English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Arabic, Korean, Persian and Ottoman Turkish.
