Overview

From September 1967 until late June 1969, I worked as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bartın, Turkey, teaching English to junior high school students. This is a memory of my time living with Bartınlılar (Bartinians) and teaching their children.

"Turkey: A Language Adventure - Peace Corps, Bartin, 1967-1969" is not a "normal memoir." It is more about how the people of Bartın taught me Turkish. Each little "tale" is about how I learned a particular Turkish word or phrase from a Bartınlı (Bartinian). Along the way, you will learn about how Bartınlılar (Bartinians) were, what I thought of them and what, I supposed, they thought of me.
