Learning Turkish Fast.


No one should say that it is easy to learn Turkish as a second language, but if you have the desire, you can pick a few words and phrases and use them while on holiday.

An advantage is that pronunciation of most Turkish words is phonetic; the words are spoken as they are written. This means that letter sounds do not change like they do in English. You can learn some important conversational phrases in just a few minutes.

Much like trying to speak other languages, learning to speak Turkish can be frustrating at first. It is challenging to understand conversational Turkish when spoken by native speakers. They often speak fast and also are prone to cutting off endings - much like we sometimes do in English.

Making yourself understood not so easy when you first start out but the majority of Turkish are very happy when you speak to them in their own language. You will get a lot of smiles.

Reading and Vocabulary


Always carry your English-Turkish dictionary with you. That way tou can always look up new words when you hear them and by remembering the context of the situation will help you remember the word more effectively. Spend time walking around the streets to read signs and billboards, keep adding to your vocabulary.

It is best not to challenge yourself with long Turkish novels in the meantime. Rather, start with children’s books, especially textbooks that are intended to teach the language.

Conversations



The best way to learn how to speak Turkish is to practice the language in conversations. If you have Turkish friends or people you know who speak both Turkish and English, ask them to speak to you using their language instead of English. Although it won't be easy at first, try your best to understand what your friends are saying and engage yourself in the conversation as much as you can. If you encounter some difficult words and phrases, don’t hesitate to ask what they mean. Practice your ears as much as you practice your tongue.

Culture



If you don’t have a Turkish friend around, the next best thing is watching Turkish television if you have it on satellite or cable. You can also check the Internet for Turkish TV shows and other helpful resources. If you are in Turkey or have the time to visit the country, learn as much as you can about the culture. This can help you in understanding and speaking the language.

STEP 1

Buy yourself e a Turkish-English dictionary or seek one out online, and make flashcards of common words to begin building a vocabulary. Focus on words needed to get by on a day-to-day basis.

These can be groups of words such as Greetings, Common Foods, Directions, Basic Question Words etc. Create flashcards with the English-language term on one side and the Turkish word on the other and use them in memorization practice to build up a sizable Turkish vocabulary.

STEP 2
Build up to memorizing and understanding basic Turkish phrases by using a language dictionary and other workbooks. Purchase a basic Turkish language workbook and study and memorize basic sentences, paying attention to the new grammar rules and the placement of verbs, nouns and adjectives. Experiment with replacing some words in the sentences with others to facilitate being able to converse about a variety of topics. Practice writing basic sentences as well, to aid in memorization and provide a deeper understanding of the language.

STEP 3
Work with a computer Turkish language teaching program to learn more words and to hear how the language is spoken. Learning Turkish through digital means through a computer program will provide a chance to hear the Turkish language being spoken by a native or highly competent speaker, exposing the learner to correct pronunciation and speech patterns. At the same time, the program should further the learning of new words, phrases and grammar points.

STEP 4
Enroll in a Turkish class or seek out a private tutor for intense, face-to-face lessons. Community colleges, universities and other education centers may offer Turkish classes for both beginner and advanced students. Consult with area schools to see what they have available. I

STEP 5
Plan for and make a visit to Turkey to hear and speak the language in its country of origin. Though it can be expensive, visiting Turkey will provide language students with a unique opportunity to truly live the language they are studying, using it to converse in a native context. Every trip to the market or visit to a restaurant can become a lesson and a chance to learn new things and improve language skills. Research local Turkish language classes in Turkey as well, augmenting the on the street experience with lessons from a qualified local instructor.

Tips & Warnings

Don't shy away from language workbooks and programs made for children. Though they are basic, they will generally move at a slow pace that is ideal for those with no Turkish language background.

Rent or buy some Turkish language movies (with English subtitles) to get more exposure to native speakers conversing.
