I hear most of Europe and U.S.A. people do not know Türkiye ( Turkey).

I hear they think Türkiye as an Arabic country in the Middle East.

Is it true?

If so, they are not interested in the World History and Geography.

However they are well-educated and cultured people usually.

Where exactly did you hear this?  I don´t know anyone personally who is not aware of the location of Turkey

I think you could be right about that! 

 

I once over heard a conversation between three women, one of which said she was going on holiday and the others said "don´t they sell women for camels"?  and also I have said to friends about going hiking in the mountains and they thought we would be kidnapped.  Yes I have also heard people say they think Turkey is full of Arabs!!!

 

But those people are not really interested in anything much apart from the next new car .............. {#lang_emotions_lol}

Can´t speak for others, maybe that´s true. But, Yilgun, weren´t you the one that thought my country is the same as Holland? Does that mean you are not interested in World History as well (my country is famous for it´s rich history in trading in the 17/18th century, also notorious for slavery in Africa/Surinam - no ´e´ Libra!! - and more). What do you know about France, Sweden, Finland, The Civil War in the States and much more? Isn´t it a little short-sighted to call people ´not interested in World History´ just because they don´t know YOUR country well? Maybe these people do know a lot about Australia, Peru, South-East-Asia etc.

Thank you for your kind interests.

You are right.

But some friends who study in Europe, England and USA tell us so?

I have been unhappy for that.
