Top 6 Reasons to Teach English in the City of Sultans: Istanbul
By Gabriela Fernandez
Bridging Asia and Europe both literally and figuratively, Turkey is the most oriental of the western nations and the most occidental of eastern nations. Once a centerpiece of the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires, it has been a crossroads of civilizations traveled by great figures in history from the Homeric heroes of Troy and Alexander the Great to Suleiman the Magnificent and Winston Churchill. Bordered by eight countries - Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Azerbaijan - and easily accessible by many others, it is easy to comprehend how Turkey has become such a fantastic melting pot of cultures, traditions and cuisines. If you are looking for the beautiful beaches and grand Classical monuments of a nation like Greece or Italy, you will find it in Turkey.
