In this study in which the qualitative research approach is adopted, the data were collected through literature review. The data were collected under two main headings: Ottoman and Republican periods. 63 works in the Ottoman period and 156 works in the Republican period were identified. The books of which contents are examined were presented in chronological order under different titles (grammars, phrasebooks, textbooks etc.) considering the purposes of writing. The results of the study show that learning Turkish as a foreign language by Germans has a long-standing background and especially due to the increased cooperation between the two countries, the number of Turkish teaching sets, phrasebooks and grammars has increased. As a result, Germans have been learning Turkish as the language of the enemy, friend of the arms, guest, trading partner and the country of travel throughout the history.
