  • Description


    I live alone in an aparment flat in Balıkesir where is located in the Marmara region. I worked as a Turkish teacher for several years and now I am working as a lecturer at university.
    I like to spend time at home. I like cooking, eating and drinking :) I am always open to explore new things. I also like to travel.
    I believe in the power of these kind of organisations. I am also a couchsurfing user, and I love it. My primary aim in here is to meet people from all over the world and make new friends. And the other one is language exchange. I intend to develop my English skills. And I am interested in Russian (I have some basic skills), German (have no skiils).

    You can ask me what you expect from me and my city. I can tell you the details. Generally, i live in a city center. So you will be in a city life. But it is not very crowded as other big cities like istanbul. You can experience the daily life in a turkish city. You can communicate them easily.
    We can learn and talk about our cultures and languages. If you are interested in turkish language, we can have conversations about it. It is my profession.
    You can experience turkish cuisine here.
    We can travel together, and so you can discover different areas.

  • Help


    I want to improve my language skills. For English, I am going to begin to prepare for IELTS. Some practice in speaking and listening would be good for me. On the other hand I am interested in Russian. I need Russian in my academic researches. I have basic knowledge in Russian.
    Except language needs, I may need help for houseworks.
    One another help I may need is driving. I'm new to driving. If you have a driving licence, it would be very good to practice driving with you. And also it would be a good opportunity to travel together and discover different places.
    And it is possible to exchange everything between your skills and my skills. I am not limited with the words I mentioned above.
    If you are intested in some of these, we can talk about the details.
