I will never forget one day when I went to his class, before explaining in detail to the first graders how the dome of Hagia Sophia, which collapsed due to the earthquake in the 10th century, was restored, he came up to me and asked me the pronunciation of the name of Trdat (Dırtad), the architect who restored the dome, and tried many times to pronounce that name correctly before entering the class.
