My name is Sevilay Akarçay. I’m an English language teacher with ten years of teaching experience and an MA in TESOL from SIT Graduate Institute. I worked with young learners, adults and most recently university students in Türkiye.

I’m originally from Turkey, but I grew up bilingual. Born in Germany, as a child, I lived in Australia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Turkey and attended schools in which English was the primary language of instruction.

Currently my main interests include cross-cultural interactions/language and identity, linguistic/cultural hybridity, and sociocultural linguistics.
