Course Name: Adult Intermediate

Lecturer: Imge Sahin

 

 

I graduated from Hacettepe University with an English Language and Literature Degree and earned a masters degree in English from Simmons College.
I have eleven years of teaching experience both in Turkey and the United States (three years in a school setting and seven years in tutoring). Being a native Turkish speaker who learned English as second language gave me a better understanding of challenges in the language learning process.
I am hoping that my experience and knowledge help my students to become confident and fluent Turkish speakers, writers and readers.

I am looking forward to having a great year teaching Turkish and sharing my knowledge with my students.
