About the Author
Ali Akpınar, an İstanbullu since he was born in 1972, graduated from English Teaching Department at the Marmara University, İstanbul. While his academic home discipline is English Studies, his Turkish teaching is characterised by a distinctly interdisciplinary orientation and he started teaching Turkish language and making Turkish language materials. He is currently working as a foreign language tutor and author of language books.
İstanbullu, inspired at the Turkish language lessons given by the author as part of the teaching period, is the first book of a series called İstanbul books by the author in addition to language books.
“When you intend to go to a city that has a population almost as large as your country might be a bit scary. So when I planned my trip to Istanbul I have read the travel books my friends gave me but I must confess that all looked like some big ad flyers. Then I had the chance to read Istanbullu and all of a sudden everything was clear. Those little details I needed were there in alphabetical order. Words that you might see on signs, bus stops, restaurants and hotels, name of foods or common expressions are all there, well structured and easy to use. Moreover, most of the entries have Internet links for further info. Using the book this way I planned my whole trip. Guess what, thanks to Istanbullu the big scary city felt like home!” – Daniela, Romania
