Turkish Language/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

All kinds of linguistic questions which are not too technical (stuff that only linguists can understand but other people have no clue about)

Experience in the area

Turkish native and semi-pro translator/interpreter from English to Turkish and vice versa. Been voluntarily and semi-professionally giving lectures at numerous institutions such as Tandem, Turkish military, several private schools in Turkey and Poland, both in Turkish and English. Speaking English for 18 years and been schooled in English all my life, I hold a Toefl degree (270 CBT, which was acquired without any previous attempt just to meet some technical formalities).

Education/Credentials

My area of expertise is officially "English Economics", and unofficially "languages" (particularly Turkish and English). Also, I have studied Spanish, Italian, Polish and Arabic, which helps me expand my linguistic knowledge in comparison and analytical thinking although I am far from being expert in those areas.

Awards and Honors

Graduated university (English Economics) as a top honorary student. Graduated the faculty as the top student in terms of English. Served in military as the chief officer of linguistics
