Yûnus’un Otağı” is a club established in 2022 by Yunus Emre Institute London in order to promote Turkish language and culture. The club Yûnus’un Otağı, which translates as ‘Yunus’ tent’ takes its name from the famous poet, Yunus Emre, as well as a traditional Turkish tent used as a former living space, brings together those who want to experience Turkish culture and practice their Turkish language skills every Friday evening. The club is run by Turkish Education Coordinator Dr. Hadra Kübra Erkınay Tamtamış, and Turkish teachers of the institute also join each week. A theme is addressed every week in the club, and various materials appropriate for the theme are prepared and provided on club days. The club is free of charge for Turkish course students at Yunus Emre Institute London. In addition to practicing Turkish, the club organizes a variety of activities to promote Turkish Culture, such as: making Turkish Coffee, kneading çiğ köfte (traditional meatballs) during Turkish Sıra Night, performing Turkish Folk Dances and singing folk songs. The themes that will be covered in the club during the 2023 Spring semester are as follows: introducing yourself, games (taboo, name-placeanimal-thing, silent cinema), drinks, Turkish Movies, Turkish TV Series, travel/trip and a list of places to visit in Turkey.
