A warm welcome to Giresun University’s School of Foreign Languages! Established in 2012 and nestled in the heart of Turkey’s majestic Black Sea region, we work under Giresun University’s Rectorate, and pick up where the former Department of Foreign Languages left off in terms providing high quality, dynamic foreign language training and education to upper-level secondary school, undergraduate, and post-graduate students.

In partnership with other internal departments, we provide preparatory, basic, vocational, and advanced foreign language programs, alongside periodic courses and seminars in teacher training, translation, and interpretation.

YLSY foreign language exam prep classes are also offered, as outlined in a protocol signed by Turkey’s Ministry of Education General Directorate of Secondary Education, with the aim of developing and sharpening skilled foreign language teachers and lecturers, and thus fulfill national education needs and goals.


In a nutshell, we aspire to…

·         Develop and hone our students’ fundamental skills in their foreign language(s) through fostering a supportive, vibrant, challenging, and cultured learning environment.

·         Refine our students’ linguistic capabilities and cross-cultural awareness for the needs of their academic careers and beyond, across diverse social and professional domains.

·         Cultivate a life-long love of language learning and cultural dialogue.
