Summary

The Turkish Uncovered course extends on the extremely popular StoryLearning method by Olly Richards, applying a story-based teaching methodology that comprehensively covers Turkish up to an intermediate level. The course is ideal for those who enjoy a literacy and grammar-heavy approach, but may not be as enjoyable for other types of learners.

Overall, Turkish Uncovered is pricey but it offers great value.

If you’re learning Turkish, you may have heard about the long-awaited Turkish Uncovered course by Olly Richards (of I Will Teach You A Language/StoryLearning).

I’ve been waiting for the chance to review this course for ages.

Turkish Uncovered offers over 100 hours of content from absolute beginner up to (CEFR) intermediate. It’s an impressively comprehensive Turkish course in scope, covering pretty much every pertinent topic of Turkish for new learners.

This is literally the only Turkish course of this calibre on the market currently (that I’m aware of).

Olly approach to teaching is truly unique, and is based on story comprehension. The gist is that you’ll work through a simplified short story in Turkish, covering various grammatical topics as you go, with the end result being that you’ll have read an entire story in Turkish by the end of the course.

Not only does Olly guide you through the course, but there are video lessons produced by an experienced and qualified Turkish teacher too.

Frank opinion: This course style will suit people who enjoy a literacy, grammar-heavy approach (it’s very thorough with its explanations), but it may not be ideal if that’s not something you enjoy.

Many learners (myself included) prefer to learn through conversation/use, which this course unfortunately lacks.

The only other aspect of Turkish Uncovered that bothers me is the Teachable platform, but that’s a purely aesthetic issue.

Overall, Turkish Uncovered is excellent value (and as I said, there’s nothing else like it). A little pricey sure, but it’s a one-time payment ($297) rather than a recurring subscription (there’s also the option of 3 x monthly installments).

There are some other online Turkish courses available too worth checking out.
