Hey Bursali, I gave you job, do it! It is better than put posts withoput understanding what are people saying in their posts.We are not playing here I think and not trying to gain points here.Honey, it is not shame to ask, if you don't understand something, it is shame to not ask.
Regards Bliss

100% right Bliss. Why should asking about the Arabic writing be an insulting or a silly question? Not everybody knows about it! I can't believe it's normal to ask whether people shave their pubic hair but NOT normal to ask if they still teach Arabic alphabet around! Bursali, why should that be an impolite? If you find it this way, why don't you speak your mind and justify your annoyance instead of writing two words out of the blue!

Hello bursali,
Daydreamer is right, there is nothing wrong to ask normal question.
And why you think I have to be unhappy to have you in TC.
Everyone can be here.Especially young people.I was not insulting you.I just want you get from this lovely site everything nice and educational.I think instead your answer in the post you could explain when Turkey started to use latin alphabet.It would be better.And please do not get upset.
Regards Bliss

Merhaba Nida,

This fantastic site has all you need to start learning Turkish, the people who are on here are wonderful, and will help you in any way that they can. You should start at the begining of this site.... http://www.turkishclass.com/basicMain.php

I have been learning Turkish since September, and am really enjoying it. I have long way to go, but already I can have a conversation on the telephone, and understand some written text.

I make it a priority to try to learn something new every day. Good luck with your learning! If I can be of any help let me know

Merhaba Lindaxxx,

I thank you alot for ur advice. I will start from this site. Hope i will be able to speak turkish after sometime. I do like this language very much.
But is it possible to learn language by on-line lessons only? I think without communication we cannot get it well.

You told you started learning it from september only. But it passed only 1 month and you already can keep conversation by phone!!! Perfect!!!

I learned the basic phrases of Turkish on my own through books, and trying to speak ordering food at Turkish restaurants or kebap shops. Most people helped me to get the right sound. I can speak the basic hello, how are you, please, and thank you in 16 languages, but always wanted to learn more Turkish, as I live in Germany and a lot of Turkish people live here, and are always friendly when I try to speak it. Thanks for the posts on here and where to go to learn the grammar and basics, especially this website. I read this posts, but this is the first I wrote and I enjoy all the helpful comments. Thanks! TRH

As Turkish is a phonetic language, you will not have a problem with speaking it. Once you have learnt the alphabet,(which is very easy) you can beging to put a sound to words.

When I say that I can have a short telephone conversation, it is only very basic, for example:

Merhaba sevgilim = hello darling
nasilsin = how are you
iyiyim Teşekkürler = I'm good thanks

I then pick out words that I know from what the person is saying to help me to understand what they are saying.

Get yourself a good dictionary, that has been no end of help to me.

Remember to start at the basic level of Turkish, and not try and jump ahead, or you will confuse yourself with the way a sentence is structured
