2007 Learning Turkish

“What could possibly matter more than to take a human being and change her into a different human being by creating a new speech for her? It’s filling a deepest gap that separates class from class and soul from soul.”
Professor Higgins, My Fair Lady (Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion)

Instead of teaching English to an Englishwoman, this psychological study in human behaviour aims at the teaching and the understanding of a foreign language, in this case Turkish, to that bastion of the island race caught in a linguistic desert: an Englishman.
LEARNING TURKISH : An Englishman in Istanbul? Yeah!
