What Nikos Amca tells us about the need to create a ‘community of purpose‘ is ‘golden’:

Purpose 1 (Mourkogiannis quote)

…not to mention, a moral imperative, if we (really) want to do something about the ‘rust’ that has been building up on the hull of the ‘good ship hazırlık’ over the past few years…

And, what about Peter Block? Those wonderful questions…of his…

YES (red exlam tilted)

…this is what WE need in OUR hazırlık…in ELL Prep Schools across the globe!

  1. I will offer a famous quote from screenwriter Billy Wilder on this piece — there are too many words.

    • Laurence (the spelling is “correct”,yes?),

      Thank God for that…I thought you were gonna use his other quote: “There are too many IMAGES” 😉

      OK – time for a “real comment”, my friend…I need to borrow some thunks for the “post-script” 😉

      Be good – be safe 😉
