Hi everyone!

I’m an energetic English teacher, a keen lifelong learner, a good daughter and a cheerful friend. I started to show up in the Blogosphere in my thirteenth year of teaching. Some people believe that number 13 is unlucky but apparently it brought me luck:)

My blogging story has begun with ‘ELT Blogathon 2011’. Thanks to the British Council and my fellow bloggers there. This fabulous event encouraged me to start my personal blog.

Knowledge grows when shared. Then let’s share!


  1. Hi Merve,
    Thank you for informing me about your blog. I liked your blog, your tagline and the background are catchy :) ) I will create my own blog, too. However, nowadays I am quite busy since I am planning to take TOEFL either in April and in the beginning of May. I need it for my MA application. I am glad to hear that we will be able to see each other thanks to Sabancı University ELT Conference in June.
    Have a nice weekend :) )

    1. Dear Oya,

      It’s so nice to meet you in here after Blogathon. Thank you for your nice comments.

      I’m looking forward to seeing you there at the conference, too.
      I am sure you will have enough time after the exam so don’t worry.

      When you start your blog let me know. I want to follow your posts.

      Good luck with the exam:)
