I’ve finished another “Introduction to Aviation English” class with Aydın 67th fleet consisting of great cadets who will turn into not only pilots of Turkish Airlines in the future but also aviators whose hearts are the home of the skies! Only the pilots who achieve to keep their egos down will keep climbing to a higher altitude throughout their life journey! The one who goes unaware of the depth of their inner world will never come to appreciate the signs and miracles in the boundless universe. I wish the pilots of the future success, happiness and humbleness with their career.
This is my first photo with my close friend Aziz Babuşçu, who was elected as a deputy of the ruling AK Party from Istanbul. Aziz Babuşçu, who is a member of AK Party MKYK (50-member Central Decision and Administration Board, served AK Party as Istanbul AK Party president for eight years. I wish him success in the path of politics he treads with an understanding of serving Almighty God and His people.
I have finished my “Introduction to Aviation English” course with the 1st fleet of Ireland, who will have their flight traning in an Aviation Academy in Cork city. It was such a fun and a big honour to teach these guys who will turn into great aviators at the end of this journey, which takes a lot of effort, dedication, passion and patience. After one and half year training, hopefully all of my cadets will be first officers (co-pilots) of Turkish Airlines and fly Turkey and the world in the near future. I wish all of them success with their training and career.
I visited Mr Temel Kotil, the Chief Executive Officer of Turkish Airlines, who transformed Turkish Airlines into a global success story. I got the chance to discuss my new projects with Mr Temel Kotil in the field of Aviation English. I was impressed by this humble man who left his imprint on Aviation World.
I gave some English books I’ve written, to Mr. Temel Kotil, the Chief Executive Officer of Turkish Airlines, as a gift. He praised my contribution to the field of English Language Teaching in Turkey. I hope I will also create lots of beneficial works in the field of Aviation English as well. I am in touch with some world-famous ELT teachers and authors who will help me with my projects to achieve this goal. When I shared some of my projects with Mr. Temel Kotil, he told me that he is ready to support my projects, believing that these projects will help all our employees including ground handling staff, pilots and flight attendants to improve their English skills.
The series of “Sing by Heart 1,2, 3” teaching English through enjoyable songs are out now! Each pack consists of 9 songs written, arranged and performed by Jason R Levine (Fluency MC), and its instrumentals on a DVD, and a fully illustrated activity book written by Turgay Evren. The songs were created in accordance with the curriculum of English education for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades offered by the Ministry of National Education in Turkey. English Teachers and learners can get these books in D&R bookshops, or order them through http://www.sediryayinlari.com, or http://www.kitapyurdu.com.
I believe that our students in Turkey will have fun while improving their English through the songs of “Sing by Hearts”.
