The “Istanbul English Conversation Club” has been operating in Kadikoy for the past 14 years!  This club starting with 2 or 3 participants back in Protected content since then, has grown to as high as 60 participants.  The club is held in the Aden Hotel located right along Rihtim Caddesi, across from the main boat dock in Kadikoy.

The club begins with a short 15 – 20 minute talk, usually by one of the native English speakers that have been attending this club for a number of years.  The talks are on almost every subject imaginable but the main point is that the Turkish young professionals attending have a chance to hear English in this kind of setting.

After the talk, all the attendees break up into small groups with all the groups having a native English speaker (or with a person that is extremely proficient in English).  The topics in the group tend to be discussion questions related to the speaker’s talk which they have just heard. These groups not only serve to help the Turkish guests with their listening ability but also affords them opportunities to speak English in a secure environment.  This time together also allows the Turkish guests to get to know the international people better, thus the club also plays a role in connecting professionals throughout Istanbul.

The “Istanbul English Conversation Club” is held every Thursday evening from Protected content at the Aden Hotel in Kadikoy ( Protected content ).

If you are interested in attending, please email Protected content or call Protected content .  

There is no cost except to buy a drink (coffee, tea, soda, etc).
