What’s happening in Northern Cyprus?

Can anyone tell us more?

Today's edition of Kibris Gazetesi (‘Cyprus Gazette’) carried an intriguing article. It begins:

AB, Girne Özel Eğitim Merkezi'nin, özel eğitiText Colourme gereksinim duyan çocuklarin eğitimlerine yönelik İletimsel Eğitim Programı (Conductive Education Programme) projesine onay verdi.

Macaristan'da 1946 yılında uygulanmaya başladıktan sonra tüm dünyada giderek yayılan ve özel eğitime gereksinim duyan çocuklarin eğitilmeleriyle kendi kendine yetebilen bireyler olarak yetiştirilmesini sağlayan "İletimsel Eğitim Programı", Kuzey Kıbrıs'taki özel eğitim merkezlerinde uygulanacak.


What does this mean? Like others before me I have failed to identify a free Turkish-English translation machine that can tackle a job like this.

As far as I can tell there are to be special training centres introduced across Northern Cyprus, to provide an İletimsel Eğitim Programı, something that the newspaper itself translates as a ‘Conductive Education Programme’.

But who will be doing what, and how?

If anyone out there can translate a little more of this article, or tell more, Conductive World will be pleased to pass this information on.

New words

A caution for Hungarian-speakers who look at this article: don’t get excited over the frequent appearance of the word eğitim. In Turkish this appears to mean nothing more specific than ‘education’, so don’t jump to conclusions! (Explanation of this remark for everyone else: the Hungarian word egyetem means ‘university’).

So far, though, at least one sees a translation of Conductive Education into yet another language. A quick google finds already over a hundred hits for “iletimsel eğitim”

  1. It looks like a big story in Northern Cyprus. It's just turned up in Yurtsever Kıbrıslı as well.
