I am not sure if this has been mentioned before, but Byki is a very helpful program for beginners and the best thing is that it´s free. 

After you download it, you can add more lists to learn -->http://www.byki.com/listcentral.html and import them to Byki

Hi Everyone!

People who are here for a long time probably remember me  I used to help a lot with translations and explanations. Then I got really busy with my doctoral studies and could not wround here for a while.

Meanwhile, I helped build an English for Turkish speakers course on Duolingo. If you haven´t heard about it, Duolingo is a free language-learning and crowdsourced text translation platform. It is 100% free, and it will always be. (you can watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyzJ2Qq9Abs) 

Currently many language pairs exist, you can check them on www.duolingo.com. The Turkish-English course has been there only for two weeks, so it is still in beta. Although the course is designed for Turkish users to learn/practice English, especially if you have some basic knowledge of Turkish you can also use it to improve or practice your Turkish. The actual Turkish for English course will be released probably in a month.

You can also practice languages using Duolingo app on android or ios, Turkish is not in the apps yet but will make it there soon.

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

I have a question one of your moderators/inventors of this program clearly has some problems using nonexisting words. Example would be " bestest " another example of poor quality control would be the following sentence. " Tha brayne processing synonyms seamlessly!"

the word "best" is already a superlative. The word "best" means "better than all the rest. There is nothing better than the best.

brayne

- no dictionary results

I suppose you are not talking about Turkish-English course but maybe another course on duolingo?

I just searched and we neither have bestest nor brayne in our course.

But still, it is normal to have typos, especially in beta courses. That is why a report function exists.

I remember you diliduduk - welcome back!  The mistakes iodine mentioned are made by ´Bariş_Obdan´ in two different updates in the Turkish-English section.  I don´t think they are typos and I think his English is a bit strange!

Great idea for a language site though as long as the contrıbutors have a good grasp of both languages like yourself.

Thank you

Now I get it! Baris speaks perfect English (much better than I do), as he lived for a long time in USA. He is very familiar with everyday slang, and this is what he used when he wrote these posts just to keep things a littlee bit funny. Don´t worry he (and I) is capable of using appropriate English as well, and this is what we used building the course; you of course do not see such slang in the course itself.

Thanks for the reply.  I´m looking forward to the further development of the site.  (I would say that ´bestest´ is often used in spoken English as a way of emphasing even better than best, eg young girls often say ´x is my very bestest friend´ - but it´s not ´officially´ correct obviously!).
