Excellent Teacher!


Gökberk is an excellent teacher! I know almost no Turkish when we started. He has systematically helped me understand the basics. Now we’re making sentences after just a few short lessons. Looking forward to our upcoming classes!

Nice Talking to You

It was nice talking to you. The first half of our lesson was general conversation while the second half Gökberk explained some grammar to me. Thanks Gökberk for the lesson. See you later

Excellent Teacher


Gökberk is an excellent teacher. He knows Turkish grammar in and out. Even though he’s a native speaker and has no need to know terms like ‘relative clauses’ or ‘personal endings’, he could explain them using examples you already know from English. I work through a textbook with him (found in the public domain) and he happily follows through. The best thing is how he asks follow questions spontaneously, such as ‘ok similarly, how would you say this in Turkish’ or ‘how would you translate this sentence’. It worked so well that usually in the last 10 min of the lessons, Gökberk would just give me sentences to translate, on a given grammar theme. E.g. we did relative clauses like ‘ziyaret edeceği yeri dün gördüm’ -> Yesterday I saw the place she/he will visit. We did about 7 of those. No hesitation in recommending him!

Defined My Weak Points

It was a great lesson, he listened to me and defined my weak points and strong points. Then gave me the guidelines to improve my Turkish speaking skills.

The Best Turkish Teacher


I had already tried Gökberk for Turkish private classes (and still continue lessons with him), and he is the best teacher I ever had! Then I got to know his site Turkishaholic, tried Premium membership and my impression of him was completely confirmed. The site is so well structured, with clear and detailed sections about all features of Turkish grammar, in a very systematic and comprehensive way, in addition to numerous exercises with solutions, many reading and listening practice, as well as cultural information, blog and interactive opportunities to discuss … In sum, The PERFECT way to learn Turkish and to appreciate its rich cultural heritage. I recommend 100%!

Hardworking and Creative Teacher


I have had many private lessons with Gokberk and I have been a premium member of the Turkishaholic website. I still find out new things it has to offer and I’m glad I upgraded my membership early on. Gökberk’s hard work on updating the content keeps me busy, curious and creative; that’s a great gift from a professor to his students.
