Of course not, tunci. Thank you. As the matter of fact I just noticed it´s so much easier to be a learner.

 In my opinion you are capable to teach  learners who are beginner and even to those who are at intermediate level.

I can explain some simple things to beginners but under your supervision only. Grammar is my own field, you know, but Turkish is only theory for me. I don´t use it for anything. That´s why I may sometimes do a difficult sentence correct but stumble in a simple one. There are 60 million native speakers but I don´t know even one of them (except the wonderful natives in this site, of course).

·  Look at the clock! Bak saatta

Saate bak. (word order, as a beginner place the verb to the end; bakmak takes dative, but notice that saat exceptionally breaks vowel harmony)

Just an info ;

There are some disharmonic words that are borrowings , most of them from Arabic or French. Such as ;

alkol -ü --> alkolü [ but under normal conditions that should be "alkolu" ]

saat -i ---> sevki [ Uncd that should be "saatı"]

kanaat - i ---> kanaati [ Uncd that should be "kanaatı]

I made some of them for you. I hope there is not too much to correct in my corrections…

·  It costs 99 euros and 50 cents. O fiyet 99 euro ve 55 cent.

Fiyatı 99 avro 55 sent. (fiyat + poss 3rd sg ‘its price&rsquo

·  I don´t have a cat. Ben kedi var yok

Bir kedim yok. (kedi + poss 1st sg ‘my cat’; var ‘there is’, yok ‘there isn’t)

·  Look at the clock! Bak saatta

Saate bak. (word order, as a beginner place the verb to the end; bakmak takes dative, but notice that saat exceptionally breaks vowel harmony)

·  I wear shoes. Ben ayak kapı giyiyorum.

Ayakkaplarını giyiyorum. (sg. ayakkabı, pl. ayakkapları because it’s a compound noun actually, accusative ending because it is the object of the action)

·  I am making a cake. Ben Börek yapıyorum .

Bir pasta yapıyorum. (börek is more like a pie, I guess; Remember indefinite article)

·  I´m reading a book. Ben bir kitap okuyurum

Bir kitap okuyorum. (a small typo only; forget about ben all the time, use it only when in need)

·  We are reading newspapers. Biz gazte okuyoruz.

Gazeteler okuyoruz. (plural in the English translation)

·  Have you got a car? Sen araba var musun?

Bir araban var mı? (bir undefinite article; araba + poss suff 2nd sg; The possessive construction is made with the possessive ending, not with personal pronoun.)

·  I did not close the door. Ben kapı Kaplımadım

Kapıyı kapatmadım. (kapı + buffer + accusative ending, kapat + negation + past tense + personal ending sg 1st)

·  I can use this machine. Ben makine kullanabillerim

Bu makineyi kullanabilirim. (makine + buffer + accusative ending; kullan + potential + aorist suffix + personal ending sg 1st)

 

________

If you ask me you should go back to the basics. Make five sentences a day only but be prompt. Every suffix and letter is there for a reason. Before you continue you should check at least the noun cases, possessive construction and personal endings of verbs.

The good news is your vowels are mostly in their places (Arabic speakers often have trouble in this.)
