The Mesopotamia Language and Cultural Research Association (MED-DER) has launched the application process for online Kurdish language courses.
MED-DER was established in Diyarbakır (Amed), Turkey, by a group of Kurdish teachers. They taught the Kurdish language in cities such as Diyarbakır, Mardin (Merdin), Batman and Van.
However, since the Covid-19 outbreak, education methods have changed. Schools were closed and millions of students around the world were left without classes. Classes subsequently began to take place digital platforms.
The MED-DER lessons are transmitted through the Zoom application. People who want to join the courses can register via social media channels or by phone.
MED-DER has shared information about the application process on social media:
Mezopotamya Dil ve Kültürleri Araştırma Derneğinin yeni dönem Kürçenin Kurmanci ve Zazaca lehçelerinde online kurs başvurularımız başlamıştır.
Kurslara katılmak için aşağıdaki formu seviyenize göre doldurunuz.

The courses were launched on 15 October and registration will continue until 1 November.
The association also plans to launch another course on the Sorani dialect of the Kurdish language.
