Hi,

Has anyone tried learning Turkish with Pimsleur Turkish? If so is it any good?

Cheers

I have the book with CDs. I also have a few other methods (Rosetta Stone, Teach Yourself...ect) NONE of them have helped me. I can understand spoken Turkish but have a lot of trouble with reading and speaking...basically, information goes into the brain but NOTHING COMES OUT...oh well I guess I am getting old. In any case, they all seem pretty good in my opinion. But I think if you are an adult learner, you have to learn from several different methods to be successful and nothing is better than submersing yourself in a language to learn it.

I have the rosetta stone. It helped a little. But I have yet to complete the whole thing because it is quite intense...no daydreaming or you miss a lot! Hearing the words in a native speakers voice over and over is helpful.

I have the book "Modern Turkish" 3rd revised edition, B. Orphan Dogan. It also comes with a CD, very easy to understand.

I have pimsleur Turkish, Rossetta Stone,Teach yourself Turkish and a couple of others.
Pimsleur is very good to listen to in the car, but I use all the methods (age)
I have also started Turkish lessons only had a few but they do help. I need to practise all the time all I can say is I learn more each day.
Keep at it.

The free forums at http://how-to-learn-any-language.com are a goldmine of information on how to effectively self-teach a language.

I actually hate this site for the idiotic way they classify languages, and allow complete morons to do so.

Just read below how the Turkish language has been described by a specific moron named Tyler Olson...

"BEAUTY (referring to the 'beauty' of the Turkish language in the words of Tyler Olson the Moron): In all honesty, it's not a very pretty language. However, in this case the context makes a big difference. For example, the same vowel sounds that make it sound somewhat unattractive in speech, lend themselves very well to song and lyrical poetry."

I wrote a lengthy letter to the Swiss-cheese brains who run this site and tried to explain that such classifications are misleading as well as idiotic. Not much came out of it. Having lived in Switzerland, and knowing perfectly well how the Swiss feel about Turks in general, I am not surprised at all that such biased & prejudiced remarks are allowed on their site. I wonder if they would allow something similar to be said about their own Swiss-German dialect. I do not understand what makes this Tyler Olson such an expert on the Turkish langauge.

However, it is quite clear that this Tyler Olson is not the only idiot who contributes to this site as other language descriptions contain similar dumbo statements.
