During the summer months we stay on a beautiful and peaceful island called Bozcaada which is situated just off the Aegean coast of Turkey. We have a summer house there and in our garden we grow olive and fruit trees, lavender plants as well as a vegetable garden and a vineyard.
All you need to do is to speak daily 2-3 hours English with our 10 year old son.

My wife and I just saw your message. We are both Native English Teachers currently in ?stanbul, and have been here for three months now.
We are between jobs and are thus looking for a place to stay. We are also qualified to teach Cantonese Chinese, and are learning Turkish.
Even when we come to begin our next working positions, we will most definitely have time to spend speaking with your son each day. :)
However, we do have a cat, several musical instruments, and are aware that you posted this message some months ago, so perhaps you would not be interested.
We are contactable via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to ask us anything further.
Best regards and hoping to hear from you soon,
Corah & Daniel Chiu-Sheridan.

Hello, my British partner and I are planning a holiday in Antalya. Could anyone please inform us if sharing a hotel room is permissible or do we need separate rooms because we're not married. Thank you very much
I am an expat living in Turkey with a Turkish wife and family. If you stay in the modern hotels that have sprung up along the coast east of Antalya you will be OK. In fact we just spent last week in the Titanic Hotel on Lara Beach (Antalya) in order to re-visit sites such as Aspendos, Perge and the ancient Antalya Harbour - no problem. You will have a problem if you want to stay in smaller towns and villages - they will ask to see your marriage certificate.

Turkey is surrounded by the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Black Seas. Lots of beaches. My favorites are all on the Med: Lara Beach (Antalya) - upscale but beautiful.; Belek - golf and beaches; and Side (pronounced Seeday) affordable hotels right on the beach. It never rains in this are in July & August !!! If you can If you can pull yourself away from the beach - this area is exceptionally rich in history.
