Arabic with Turkish

I was fortunate to travel to Istanbul for two weeks over the summer to attend a Turkish language school in preparation for my final year. The opportunity to talk to locals from across Istanbul as well as the intensive classes meant that in just two weeks there was a noticeable improvement and I feel far more prepared in advance of my final year. I am grateful to Pembroke for awarding me the Alan Jones Travel Prize which was invaluable in making possible what was a rewarding and memorable trip.
