Meet the Author

John Guise is a 76 year old Turkophile born and raised in England. In his retirement he has settled in New Zealand. He has also set up a website, Manisa Turkish, which offers an easy way to learn Turkish for everybody.John Guise first visited Turkey for a holiday in Alanya 1979. A year later he started to work in Manisa. Living in Izmir he worked as a Professional Technical Engineering Manager in a factory producing diesel engined industrial vehicles. Besides a daily journey from Izmir to the Manisa factory for two consecutive years, he also found time to visit Istanbul, Ankara, Bursa, Balikesir, Nevsehir, Ayvalik, Isparta and Bodrum for short holiday trips. At the end of his working contract he returned to his own country.To show his gratitude to the Turkish people for various kindnesses shown to him, he decided to teach Turkish to fellow Language learners. In 2001 he passed the SOAS University examination in the Turkish language. After this he began to teach Turkish at his local Technical College at Coventry in the UK. He has also given private lessons in his own home.John Guise himself had studied Latin and Greek in his own grammar school days. Also he can speak and write some French and Spanish. Before he began to work in Turkey he had said to himself, "I now have a chance to learn Turkish.." He states that because he already knew some languages then it was easier to assimilate Turkish.His treatise "The Turkish Language Explained for English Speakers" is the result of his many years learning and teaching this fascinating language. In it he explains the various difficulties the learner may encounter along their learning curve. Many of these differences between English and Turkish are often glossed over or not even mentioned in many already published Language courses.Grammar is kept to a minimum and explanations are clear and to the point. It is a book about the Turkish language and its grammar that you will keep by your side from your first lesson through intermediate and advanced stages of your studies.You can now also buy this EPUB version with Turkish fonts embedded so is is viewable in all Ebook readers from turkishlanguage.co.uk/ebook.htmAdobe Digital Editions 2.0 now has support for Turkish Fonts (Unicode sub-set). You can update or download it to your PC to view this book correctly.
