Any expats living in Izmit?

Hello, my name is Lina, from the Netherlands. Thank you for accepting me in this forum. I just moved to Izmit last week with my husband. Trying to learn the Turkish language, but this is sooooooo difficult.
So I hope to meet expats here, that I can understand. Do you know anybody in Izmit

Hello Lina. Hope you both enjoy your move to Izmir. Whether on here, or around Izmir, I'm sure you'll soon meet people that have moved there, too. A Turkish friend of mine gave me the advice that your first step in learning Turkish should be just to listen!

Hello Lina. If you are in İzmit near İstanbul,then I know there s an American journalist/feminist writer living there - I will try to find her contact details as she might know of "expat" groups etc.

Here is is:
Katherine Belliel is an American writer based in Izmit, Turkey. With roots in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio, this midwest native turned global citizen has a B.S in History and Religion from Eastern Michigan University. Her work has appeared in the expat anthologies Tales from the Expat Harem (Ashman and Gokmen, 2005) and Encounters with the Middle East (Bowman and Khashan, 2006). In addition to writing a weekly column for the English language, Istanbul-based daily DEAD LINK under the pen name “Elle Loftis,” Katherine spends her time making mud pies with her preschool aged son, globe-trotting with her pilot husband, or caring for the neighborhood cats. She is currently finishing her first historical fiction novel. Follow her on Twitter: @KatieBellie

Hi Lina

I have visited Izmit - do not remember it being a place lots of foreigners go but I am sure you will find somebody. It is quite nice there. Lots of naval ships

I found turkishclass.com to be a good site to learn. Lots of grammar assistance and tests. Also Duolingo app. Wishing you luck
