Turacoon 101: Instructions
We have some suggestions for you to make the best possible use of the Turacoon Turkish Learning Platform! Under this title, we put together what you need to do to have an efficient Turkish learning process in Turacoon,
- before the lessons,
- during lessons,
- and after lessons.
These suggestions had were brought together by our student support team as a result of examining the habits of our students that achieve their goal of learning Turkish on Turacoon. In other words, it is a recommendation list that we have created based on the experiences of our students who learn Turkish quickly by using Turacoon efficiently.
Why Turacoon 101?
Every course has a code when you start a college education. These codes usually consist of 3 digit numbers. For example, if you are going to the Faculty of Engineering, you will take an Introduction to Engineering course, and the code of this course is 101. In other words, the expression 101 here indicates that the most basic and first course that students are coming to the faculty, being engineers, will take is Introduction to Engineering. For this reason, we named this blog "Turacoon 101", which should be read first by students who come to Turacoon to learn Turkish.
1.What You Should Do Before Turacoon Lessons
Before you take the first Turkish lesson, check the profiles of all teachers on the Tutors link. Then find the right teacher for you and make a reservation.
During your first week in Turacoon, we recommend identifying your favorite teachers by meeting different teachers. Then, you can easily find these teachers that you have added to your favorites while planning your lessons for the coming days, using our reservation system. Thus, you can plan your next one-to-one online Turkish lesson.
Using our teacher selection filter will help you find a teacher with the qualifications that you wanted. You can find this tool on the main page, in the upper right corner of the Tutors section, after logging into our website. Thanks to the filtering, you are prepared according to the goal you want. In this way, it is easier to find a teacher who will lead you to the result you want and who has the teaching style that suits you. You can make a reservation date and time as you wish by the listed teacher profiles and their calendars. To ensure continuity, we recommend that you book with the same teachers for the next few weeks and attend classes regularly. Constantly tutoring with the same teachers allows teachers better recognize your learning needs and guide you better.
The common characteristics of the teachers preferred by the students that have practiced for a long time and succeeded in Turacoon are that these teachers have been teaching Turkish for many years, are experienced, and have high evaluation scores. When we examine our 4-year Turacoon experiences, students who learn Turkish successfully prefer their teachers by these features;
- Experience working with students of their level,
- And teachers who are experts in their targeted field.
2.What You Should Do During Turacoon Lessons
After meeting your teacher, he/she will ask you what subject you would like to practice that day. If you do not have a resource, you can ask her/him for a source on the topic you want to learn (for reading or learning a new word). If you have an external resource, you can transmit the link to your teacher via chatbox.
Before starting the lesson, ask your teacher to correct the mistakes during your speaking in the course, then sending the corrections in writing via the chatbox. If you wish, you can ask your teacher to share a screenshot of the materials he/she used and the notes he/she took.
At the end of your lesson, you can ask your teacher for extra Turkish resources to reinforce what you have learned in the ending and to prepare for the next tutoring. Your Turkish teachers in Turacoon have a pretty rich digital archive about teaching Turkish, and they are always happy to share them with you.
3. What You Should Do After Turacoon Lessons
If you have activated the video recording feature, you can access the video recordings of all your lessons and the corrections made by your teacher through the "My Previous Lessons" tab under your Turacoon profile. When you find time after the lesson, watching the video record of the tutoring to review the corrections and note important information will reinforce what you have learned in your private Turkish learning. Be sure to book your next lesson right after your lesson. Remember, the teachers who will provide you with the most inclusive support in your Turkish learning process are those who know your learning needs best and observe your progress.
