I have a tip for learning Türkçe, that is really helping me Instead of playing music when I am driving, I play my Turkish learning CD! It seems to be really helping Instead of driving along singing, I am driving along talking Türkçe........not too sure of the reaction that I would get in the summer with the windows down, I think I would have to put the aircon on he he he

Long time ago I thought this is just a typical American style of handling things for those people who don't like reading books but still don't want to feel uncomfortable for not reading. For me it sounded just a little unatractive.

But nowadays I changed my mind. I think books on a CD can be useful for learning Turkish. Especially after reading some comments by foreigners I realised that there is a bigger difficulty to get used to the sound of Turkish language than I imagined.

So, yes I agree with you on this issue. Hopefully we will make a complete list of printed learing materials for Turkish including those with a CD.

Also I hope we can add more content as sound files to this very website.

I must stress Erdinc, that listening to the cd's in the car do not replace my reading. I use them in addition to my books, so that I get the pronunciation right, especially for some of the longer Türkçe words

I think that adding sound files to class is a wonderful idea! It will further enhance everything that we have on this site.

Hello Lında,
probably you have seen them already but just to let others know I would like to mention that we have already some sound files that our admin had put there:
http://www.turkishclass.com/pronounciation.php

Yes I agree with you that it will be a good idea to improve the sound content even more.

Quoting Lindaxxx:

I have to say that one of my greatest worries is that I am learning the words and how they fit together but have no way of actually knowing if native Turks will ever understand a word I say simply because I have no idea if I am pronouncing things correctly.

I am trying to get around this by listening to Turkish radio when possible but find that the speech is far too fast for me to understand anything other than an occasional word. If only I could say "lütfen çok yavaş konuşun" to the people on the radio lol
