Last week we saw how easy it is to misjudge surface appearances: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Things Are NOT Always As They Seem, Avni…
As I noted previously, the Youtube video has CCs in English and Turkish…), and having the Closed Captions available makes it easy to go back and read the words missed in listening, greatly speeding my language learning. I hope it does the same for you.
Now, we get to see another major character in the series, a bit like Hogwarts Castle for Harry Potter and his friends:
where she is both the only worker there, and the owner, and always waits on her customers! This is one of the things I love about this show -it provides strong and kind role models, especially women, that all of us can admire. That role model being a working mother, especially, is good for society, in terms of representing a stretching of our norms that needs to continue.
Next week we continue with bolum 1 / episode 1, at 40 minutes into the hour long video: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Will The Kids Win? ;
