In learning Turkish, what I do find difficult is indeed the way suffixes work and how they are added to the root of the word.


From French, Ensligh or Italian, we have to construct the sentences on the reverse order


However, the construction is fairly straightforward in Turksih, which I enjoy andit fits with my mind.


No problem with vowel harmony, it even comes naturally, probably the musical ears are helping.


In any case, I love learning Turkish, and will keep up!

Quoting Manning

I still have trouble remembering that Gün means "day" and not "good", because when I see "Gün aydýn" I mentally associate it with "good day" and not "day-good".


it reminded me a funny translation from a film in turkish. it was

Asuman´s books appear very practical.  Make sure what you buy includes CD´s because Amazon sells them without (for something like $ten).  Without the CD´s, or maybe a native to substitute, their utility is marginal.

hi everyone!

i am also learning turkish. actually, i graduated from university - but i still don´t know it as much as i want to... i had different stages of difficulties before, as using grammar in practice. i got over that quickly and started to understand everything without any difficulty, but it was hard to start to speak. i was affraid of making mistakes while talking, then i realised i must. i started to speak, even to myself lol. music, movies, internet - it all helped a lot. finally, moving to turkey was a great plus, of course. i was working on some big projects as a translator, but still, my current problem is that i am mixing my mind when i am about to talk to someone i am not close to. i can´t get over that excitement i feel every time, and sometimes it sounds like i don´t even know the basic lol... i guess i have to overcome that somehow...
