#9 Language courses

A language course is one of my favorite gift ideas for people who love traveling as it allows them to interact with locals in their native language. And that makes these Turkish and Greek language courses awesome Cyprus gifts.

Now, they actually speak a Cypriot dialect, both on the Turkish side and the Greek side. But unfortunately, I couldn’t find any Cypriot Greek or Turkish courses online. So I picked standard Greek and Turkish courses instead.

And luckily, the standard languages are also understood on the island. In fact, the standard languages are the official languages (both Turkish and Greek), rather than the Cypriot dialect.
