Turkish language teacher and Turcologist, PhD in field of Turkish literature.
I am fond of academic works of Turkish Language and literature. (my spesific field is Azerbaijani literature). I have published a lot of academic works in international refreed journals and attened some congress.
Personally I am rational one who likes intellectual integrity. I like sincerity, kindness and tact. By the way I think I need to state that I am quite keen on philosophy. My favorite person Bertrand Russell...
I am also interested in theatre. We have the biggest professional private theatre in İzmir. Even though I don't go on the stage (do not act) I like watching plays and criticise them. I have classes to instruct there. We work on "how to use language in theatre" and "Turkish diction and elocution".
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
to meet people from different cultures and talk to them. I like learning and teaching.
Books, language, literature, theatre, philosophy
I sometimes read persian poetry and I like its literary power. I like it the way I like Turkish literature, which I actually think they are very close in terms of their sources in classical poetry.
از همین را، دارم فارسی یاد میگیرم. و سعی میکنم کع شعر های قشنگ را بخوانم و به آهنگ ها خوب گوش کنم.
گفت حافظ لغز و نکته به یاران مفروش
آه از این لطف به انواع عتاب آلوده
گفت که با بال و پری من پر و بالت ندهم
در هوس بال و پرش بیپر و پرکنده شدم
ای بس که نباشیم و جهان خواهد بود
نی نام زما و نینشان خواهد بود
زین پیش نبودیم و نبد هیچ خلل
زین پس چو نباشیم همان خواهد بود
Music, Movies, and Books
I listen to every kind of music that I like. I like reading philosophy and have read all books of Bertrand Russell (that we have had so far).
I have watched many movies (not as many as ones who are professionals). My favorite moves are the movies of British Actor Bill Nighy. I love him and memorized almost all scripts of the classical scene talk of Underworld...
(When i wrote a letter to him, in 2006, that i said I was learning English because of his poweful English scripts, he replied with his signed photo, that he was so proud.)
Teach, Learn, Share
I'd like to teach my own language, which is my subject. I have taught foreign and local students so far. I have had some classes in some private enstitutes in İzmir, in Köln (very short time through Sahne Tozu Theatre in 2018 ) and currently teach in our theatre.
I'd also like to learn about cultures and languages.
