Kadikoy Turkish-English conversation group ~ November 28

Organized by Marla_and_Onur
Kadıköy Turkish-English Conversation Group is a regular weekly group that meets every Thursday night from 7:30pm-10pm in Kadıköy. This group is a wonderful opportunity to practice and improve your Turkish and English conversational skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Remember that this is not a social group or a party. This is a language exchange meeting and our intention is to practice speaking both English and Turkish in a relaxed and friendly environment.

* No native English speaker at your table? *
No problem! Remember that this is not a class; this is a couch surfing language exchange meeting! Every week, the people who attend the meetings change, so have a good attitude and be ready to speak with many different people! There are many near fluent English speaking Turkish people that come regularly to our meetings and we invite you all to learn as much as you can from each other. They are so inspiring to everyone in our group! If you would really like to speak with a native English speaker at the next meeting, invite a native English speaker to come with you! Our couch surfing community is wonderful and is open to everyone interested in meeting people and learning languages! Some days you will sit with old friends and on other days you will make new friends. It's always perfect!

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Our language meetings are FREE. In order for us to keep having our conversation meeting at the current location, we have to support the restaurant, which helps to support our group. We kindly request that everyone buys at least one drink (tea, coffee, beer...) or even food, during the meeting each week. If you go outside to smoke, please keep the front door closed. THANK YOU for helping us to keep this wonderful location for our meetings!

We’ve arranged a special menu with the restaurant owners for those of you who would like to eat dinner. As always, please pay when you order.
