How is everyone today?
I am new to this site and I am very eager to learn the Turkish language. I hope to one day study in one of Turkey's universities. Learning Turkish will hopefully give me the confidence to move there for at least a little while.
I do have one question-- I already know the Arabic language, so will Turkish be at least slightly easier for me to learn? I hear that some of the words either share the same roots, or sound quite alike.

Also-- if anyone needs help perfecting their English, I would be more than happy to help. I can also help someone who may be learning Spanish or Arabic.

Thanks everyone, have a nice day

Welcome to TLC Yavrum,

Yes,you will find Turkish language easier for you to learn not only regarding words but also grammar
Some words are same and some same in pronouncing but a bit different in meaning,so sometimes it confuse too,so take care
İf you are good at arabic grammar 'nahw' you will find it more easier in Turkish
The only thing you will find it strange at first ...well actually 2 things
Vowel harmony and the sentence order
Vowel harmony wont be a problem to you too once you get it and understand it,my advice start with it by all means
As for sentnce order,
You wont find the Turkish sentence order same neither in arabic nor in english im afraid
The only way to get over it is to read more Turkish texts and you will get used to it.

My only regret when i started learning Turkish,that i wasnt really a big fan of arabic grammar...wish i gave it more time when i could !

Dont worry,once you gave it time and start,you will find it nice and easy for your logic too,just study.
Good luck,and when ever you need any help dont hesitate to ask,many will love to help you here
