Melih Cilga


My name is Melih Cilga. I am a German teacher and an ex-engineer, now living in Istanbul, Turkey.

Even though I graduated from Istanbul Technical University’s Informatics department, I worked as an Engineer only for a few years, because my professional aspirations changed, somehow I became more interested in different subjects, such as languages, publishing, journalism and advertising.

So, thirty years ago I started to learn German at the Goethe Institut in Istanbul, and then I moved to Germany and lived in Berlin and Hamburg for some years.

Since I came back to Istanbul, I teach German to my private students.
