Additional comments or student accomplishments.

We have met both in person and on Zoom this month. We only met twice because of her son being at home over the summer, my own illness, and Betul's trip to visit her family in Turkey. She is there as I write this report on 7/28/22.
Betul and I spent one of our sessions visiting The India Market, a large import store that she had told me about last month. She toured me through the store, finding her favorite items, describing how she might use various ingredients, and locating the Turkish brands of products she purchases.
In general, we focus most on developing her practice of thinking in English. I try to "catch her at it" and then verify with her-"were you translating in your head?" It's fun when she says "no, I was not thinking in Turkish." I"m sure when she gets back from her homeland, we'll have to redouble our efforts.
