I am a lecturer, editor, poet, translator and author who wrote, retold, edited, or translated over 65 stories, 5 textbooks, and many poems and essays. Some of the storybooks I have written in English were translated into Arabic and Turkish. My stories were also converted into ebooks and published by Turkish Airlines.  I have also written several songs, and some of my songs were arranged and sung by Jason R. Levine, the American RAP Singer. I have worked in various colleges and universities as an English Teacher in Ankara, Istanbul, Toronto and Montreal. I have a bachelor degree in the field of English Language Teaching and a master’s degree in the field of English Language and Literature with a focus on Post-colonial Literature.

I have also created many audio podcasts and videos and published them in video sharing sites like Youtube. I got the chance to collaborate with Vicki Hollett, the world famous writer of Oxford University Press, and JenniferESL, author of Pearson Education in some online projects. My videos and podcasts were viewed and downloaded more than two million times.

I’d like to share my works on my blog with my companions and the guests. I have also put some inspirational stories, quotations and poems penned by some other writers or sources on my blog so that you may have an access to a richer source of literature. I hope that you will enjoy this blog. I am looking forward to receiving your comments. Take care and be with God.

  6. Hello my dear brother Murat, it has been ages since we last time conversed with each other on the phone. I have been engaged in lots of activities for the last five years, but one thing has not changed: my job in English Time. I have created a few blogs to make a humble contribution to the efforts of English learners since, you know better than me that, an English learning activity that is confined to the walls of the classroom cannot prosper, flourish and thrive. Being locked to solely the class atmosphere is one of the main ailments of English Learning Process in Turkey. I will be more than happy if you benefit from any materials on my blog. See you soon. May God be with you.

  8. Selam Mr. Evren, nasılsın?

    You are undoubtedly blessed with your magnificent ability to manifest your feelings and ideas through words and phrases. It is actually quite amazing to find a Turkish who writes like a native English. Honestly, Mr. Evren, I have countless Turkish friends, among whom were my roommates back when I was studying. I also know 3 Turkish professors in my university but I must admit that you are second to none to perfection when it comes to written English. Despite the mere fact that I have superficially read some of your articles here, I am proud beyond the horizon. I have personally found someone so perfect, from a country that has always won my love and admiration, Türkiye.

    God bless you for the effort that you have continuously put forth, in your noble intention to educate us. Teşekkür ederim, Mr. Evren.

    Selam ve dua ile… from Malaysia.

  9. Nur, thank you for your praise concerning my English though my English is far away from deserving this praise. Nevertheless, I had to confess to myself that my pride has been flattered by your remarks.

  10. Mr. Evren,
    Your responsibility is to educate us, ‘coz you have the magic of pedagogy. My responsibility is to flatter you, ‘coz I have the magic of “flatteragogy”. Have you heard of this field? It’s a new field and soon, they will open a faculty in Oxford. But I forgot the name of the founder.. Nur something, if I am not mistaken ;)))
