My British wife and I would like to put our 2 year old in a Montesdori crèche as of September. I'm looking for people who send their kids to Montessori establishments already. What do you think of the teaching methods?

I am a Piano teacher. I work with kids aged 4 and older and try to contribute to their life through music. Our lessons can be in Turkish or English.   I organize a piano recital at the end of each year to share what we have learnt together. I can also prepare kids for London College of Music piano exams where they receive an internationally recognized certificate.   Hope to meet you!

My daughter is planning to get married in Istanbul this mid-July - if anyone could offer any advice or assistance, it would be much appreciated! I am hoping to get some information on aspects such as translators, notaries (prices and whereabouts etc), wedding planners, or nice locations/ restaurants/ hotels...

Could you help me about to find out an English speaking tutor for my kids who want to take piano lessons? We will pay in TL. We do not have a piano at home at the moment. additionally I prefer to have some extra information when/where to get a good piano, price range etc. Their ages are 10-16, they are boys. Thank you.

Hi All, We are looking for a school for our child and think Keystone looks a bit of a distance away. Our current experience(with another school)this year is not good. Because not all the teaching staff is qualified teachers with strong teaching backgrounds? Help me

Hello everyone, I just wanted to tell you that I just visited this great preschool/kindergarden/primary school in Dragos Istanbul on the Asian side. I was actually impressed for the first time. My daughter is about to be three and since she already knows English I wanted her to learn a different language. This school is amazing I can choose Spanish, German or English - all taught by real teachers from the country associated with the language they teach. Unlike many schools in Istanbul who employ "non-native" speakers. The school just seems ideal with their organic and free range meat, playscape rather than playground, curriculum based and copyright approved by the department of Education (US). This may seem trivial to some, but I am a bit sensitive when it comes to my daughters education - environment. I would definitely go check it out, the woman I spoke to was wonderful. Anja Arseven

Salam Allekum, I regret that I find this web page by chance. It seems to me that it is quite interesting not to heard of it before, because it really deserves everyone's attention and interest. Quite comprehensive. My question is, I will get married with a turkish guy in Istanbul. I dont have turkish; and it is a great burden me to colect information on net in english because most of the official web pages are not in English; and i messed up!!! What is the marriage process in Turkey? Only a religious wedding is possible? Leila
