"Tulumba" foreign language school is located in Belgrade at 94 Zrenjaninski road. The school is led by a graduated philologist with a master's degree in Turkish language and literature. We named our school after the famous sweet delicacy in both Serbia and Turkey which symbolizes the joining of Serbian and Turkish culture.
The "Divan of Tulumba Language Centre" originated as the result of nine years of work of our Tulumba centre for foreign language learning, reminiscent of the famous work "The Divan of Hafiz" written by the Persian poet Hafez Shirazi. In Turkish-Persian-Arab culture the word "Divan" (Persian دیوان, dīwān) is broadly used and synonymous with productivity and creativity, while for us, in an international context, it is associated with relaxed communication and inspiring socialization. In eastern culture, the word Divan signifies a collection of poems, writs or articles in the turkish language while in Serbian we have the Turkism "divaniti" which means to chat or talk. The word DIVAN and the years-old name of our school that comes from the Serbian Turkism TULUMBA came together into THE DIVAN OF TULUMBA, signifying a meeting place where linguistic and cultural competences develop and are practiced in a fun and inspirational atmosphere.
"Gather the pearls of real knowledge because nobody will take it from you. Jewels, gold and silver go from hand to hand. What you inherit or get you will also spend" - Persian saying.
