MY STORY

I was born and raised in Azerbaijan,a fascinating country, which is linguistically and ethnically very close to Turkiye but has been a part of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union for many years.So,besides my native language,which is Azerbaijani,I feel privileged to speak Turkish and Russian fluently.I studied International Journalism at Baku State University (Azerbaijan) and used to start my career in Public Relations working closely with  Azerbaijan-based companies and state agencies. Later I`ve got my 2d education in Learning&Development and started for my own training activity.

Without a doubt,I would still be doing this, if I had not one day met my husband and left my lovely Azerbaijan for the  Netherlands.

It was a real challenge for me to integrate a new country,to understand what’s going on in a brain when you try to acquire another language and culture. New country means new life,new life means new You and one day I found out that languages became my new passion in life. I followed this passion and it led me to investment in relevant trainings cause I see language learning as a lifelong journey. So, that`s how I succeed in getting:

Master degree in Learning and Development, Maastricht University,Netherlands

Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language, British School in The Netherlands,Haague 

Certificate in Teaching Russian as a Foreign Language, Moscow State University,Russia

Certificate in Teaching Turkish as a Foreign Language,Fatih University,Turkey

That`s how I`ve created later Join Dutch project, dutch language and exam preparation courses for newcomers to the Netherlands. Besides,I realised that most of Azerbaijani families living in Europe have a huge lack of native language knowledge.So,thats how I`ve founded Milli Ders project teaching native language and culture for bilingual Azerbaijanis all over the world.

I became a full-time Language Coach when I decided to blend what I love to do and what I am good at: foreign languages.So,these days I teach online Dutch,English,Russian,Turkish and Azerbaijani languages. I consider myself lucky enough to manage an exciting activity that allows me to work from anywhere.

My new passion brings  me a real joy and am happy to share this emotion with others.

So, welcome to Joyzone where starts your exciting language learning journey!
