Whenever I have a foreign holiday coming up, I try to learn a little of the language of the country I'll be visiting. Last year I persevered with Portuguese; the year before, I struggled with Spanish.
This year, partly thanks to the strong euro, I'm heading out of the eurozone to Turkey - so I'm to tackle Turkish.
In fact, my 'Teach Yourself Beginner's Turkish' book and CD set arrived in the post this weekend, and I've just copied the contents of the CDs over to my iPod so I can listen during my daily commute.
Which leads me to the point of this post: I was highly amused to see that iTunes identified the tracks as falling into the genre of 'easy listening'. I really hope that's accurate...
