Turgay Evren’s ESL Songs are being used in the USA schools

Turgay Evren’s ESL Songs are being used in the USA schools.

I think very highly about the songs Turgay Evren has written for ESL students. I often use them in my teaching.

My students love them.

Thank you Turgay for sharing your awesome teaching materials.
