Melike is one of the Turkish teachers at Taalhuis since 2016. She studied linguistics, has been teaching different languages since 2006 and is also responsible for the Turkish department. For her, communication is important in her lessons. No matter how many times you make the same mistake, you keep on talking. She actually likes talkative students that make lots of mistakes. She speaks English, Spanish, Dutch, French and some Italian. Her favorite Turkish expression is “Bir lisan bir insan, bin lisan bin insan”, which means “One language one person, thousand languages thousand people”. So, let’s keep on learning!
Melike also has another degree: physical therapy. Her job as physical therapist was the reason why she moved from Madrid to Amsterdam in 2015. She used to be a competitive lifter, and she’s still is a sports freak.
