I love languages. I love that power inside you that makes you want to learn more and more, the desire to express yourself and to be understood. I am a girl from a very small country in the Balkan Peninsula-Bulgaria. As it is obvious from the maps, Bulgaria borders on Serbia, Macedonia, Romania, Greece and …Turkey.


I like Turkey very much! I will never forget my trip to Istanbul when I first felt how small piece of life I am and how blessed is this place to be the center of so many civilizations. This is how the desire to learn Turkish took possession of my heart and soul. It is very hard for me to find resources about this language here in Bulgaria, because as a country that is not really developed and where people are looking mostly to the west, the resources available are concerning only German, French, English, Spanish…..That’s why I decided to learn Turkish and to be one of the very few persons who dared to break the rules of unification and be different, by simply doing what’s in their hearts. So this language turned not only into a venture for me, but into a symbol of my free will.


There is another reason for me to learn Turkish – I suffer from some kind of nervous disorder-too much stress I think, so I needed urgently to find a new source of inspiration, because there is not much to be inspired of all day in bed or at school, suffering. And here I am- another lovely language to become familiar with!


It is fact that I am in the very beginning, but I believe more than everything that if you feel something so strongly, so deeply in your heart, all the other things that may cause difficulties are not important. That is how I do believe that I will get better and will finally cope with those Turkish conjugations!
