Global law firm is seeking a Language Reviewer to be based in Istanbul.
Hello, My name is Alev, I am an artist, my husband is a medical professor and we have a nine year old son.Our son is bilingual in Turkish and German and attends a private German school in Istanbul. My husband and I would like our son to learn English with someone who enjoys being with children and playing with them. We are looking for such a person who can spend quality time with our son, communicating and interacting with him in English for two - three hours a day. With regards to accomodation; we offer a fully-furnished 20 square metre bedroom and a 15 square private bathroom (in both of our houses ) .Meals are also provided. We would like you to feel at home with us and enjoy your time in Istanbul and on the island. We live in a villa with a nice garden in a good neighbourhood in Istanbul.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. If you are interested in , please forward your c.v. and contact details of two referees, preferably e-mail addresses . Regards, Alev Ataol
I am sorry for the long delay. I was looking for e-mail. and hadn't gone back to this forum. Yes, my wife and I both have Facebook accounts, but neither of us use FB much --- we have some privacy concerns about FB.
My wife, Regina, is away now for an election observer job, and will be gone until May 23rd. We will talk as soon as she is back about when we would like to come and for how long. Briefly, we are both 62, retired professionals, and we love to travel and meet people.
Until then, perhaps we could try personal e-mail again; mine is msimpson1951@googlemail.
Thank you for your reply, and we are both hoping to meet you and your family soon.
Hello Mr. Simpson,

How long would you like to stay in Turkey?Can you explain a little bit about yourselves?
I would like to know you & your wife better. Do you have an account on facebook?

If you have questions, please do not hasitate to ask.
