Fun with Languages Friday: This week we go back in time a few years, and a couple of continents, to Turkey. I learned much of my spoken Turkish over meals with neighbors, and by watching this delightful family show in the evenings after work. It has been described as a Turkish version of the 70s show Bewitched, but I’d call it more of a Bewitched meets Harry Potter ala modern Turkey.

I also have a short story series going, called Ann&Anna, the story of an escape. I hope that this series will move you to learn more ways to help use our history to build new tools.
Part 13 was last Sunday, if you enjoy historical fiction.
I look forward to your thoughts.
1.) Share your thoughts on how language learning may encourage empathy-building cooperation, and might help, or hinder, inclusive thinking.
2.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses those thoughts.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
