Once upon a time there was an International Week at our University. Some students at the Faculty of Economics organised a Turkish Night. This Night began at 6 p.m. on 23rd September.
At first we watched some hungarian folk-tales. Noticing the Turkish concerns in the Hungarian folk-tales was very interesting. We saw fascinating pictures and short videos equally about Turkey, the plateau, tall hills and mountain ranges, a seacoast and sure about the people, who live there, and their culture. We watched exciting image films about this interesting country.
During the programme Asst.Prof.Dr. Osman Nuri Özdoĝan Turkish lecturer (The representative of Adnan Menderes University School of Tourism and Hotel Management institution) presented us Turkey in English. From the lecture we enriched our cultural, religious and tourism knowledge about Turkey. The Professor talked about the everyday life of the people who lives there, habits, a religion with surprising openness, from the country’s industry, its agricultural activity, moreover about the car manufacturing.
The International Folk Dance Club’s (Jó Hangulat Klub) dance instructor heightened the mood after the lecture. Everybody enthusiastically formed a circle in order to learn some Turkish traditional folk round dances. The Turkish Erasmus students showed it how to dance the real Turkish belly dance.
Then we played quiz. Participants formed groupes and the competition started. Naturally this programme was passed in a friendly mood and we laughed a lot. Many of Erasmus students attended the Turkish night, thus we played the quiz in two languages, in Hungarian and in English.The questions were about Turkey and we were happy to see several correct answers. All of us took delight in the turkish exchange student’s win because she got a Faculty of Economics souvenir.
During the night we had some problems, after all the lecturer and Erasmus students gave full marks to the organizer team on the Night.
