On February 18, activists of Kazan's Husankaj Chuvash Culture Center welcomed Chuvash language researcher guests from Turkey.
Bülent Bayram, Ph.D., stated that it is easy for a turkophone to also acquire fluency in Chuvash. He first heard Chuvash spoken in the city of Kazan, it is there his interest in the language was sparked. Since then he even managed to produce a Chuvash-Turkish Dictionary.
Turkish researches aim to publish a collection of rare poems of famous poet Gennady Aygi who they claim have left in Turkey some poems in Chuvash and Russian. The book will be shipped both to Tatarstan and Chuvashia.
The assembly was held solely in Chuvash, attendees were impressed by the eloquence of Turkish delegates, considering the decline of Chuvash in Kazan.
Bülent Bayram, Ph.D. invited Chuvash youth to study in his university (Kırklareli University, Turkey) to strengthen the international relations.
