I love the world of languages and have a great passion to learn them. I speak Azerbaijani, Turkish, English, and Farsi. Being a Linguist will lead my interest in the rich world of languages and widen my social communication. Technology in this modern age provides eternity for the world of knowledge. Exploring new ideologies in Linguistics alongside technology will change the way of transformation of information among cultures, and I want to discover these novel episodes of languages. My research interests are language learning problems, second language acquisition, and technology in Language teaching.
