Get a Turkish friend [boy or girl] and practice what you learnt with him/her.

Geoffrey L. Lewis´s Turkish Grammar supposed to be good . [that´s what I heard] I never read it though.

Ön Kapak

I dont think you can download it on the internet. That book must be available in bookstores in Egypt.

You can read the first edition of this book (from 1969) here:

 

http://www.scribd.com/doc/14532621/Lewis1-Turkish-Grammar

 

I´ve got the second edition of this book. It does not have exercices like ones which you can find in many language-learning books, unfortunately, but there are many, many examples with explanation. Also, the language with which it is written, is not very formal. I think it is not good as the only source to learn Turkish (and I wouldn´t recommend it for absolute beginners), but it helps a lot in learning - it explains many details, and - in my opinion - it can be very useful for everyone who feels like, let´s say, "intermediate beginner".

Well, I´m not a very good example that this book helps a lot but I would recommend it to everyone who feels motivated to work hard on their Turkish and wants to be able to speak it fluently one day.

Another book, which I haven´t read so far, but which I heard is very good is "Turkish: A Comprehensive Grammar" by Aslı Göksel and Celia Kerslake, which you can find on Google Books:

http://tinyurl.com/cm6ewt6

As I said, I haven´t read it, so I can´t say my opinion about this book. To me, it looks almost like sort of "Turkish grammar encyclopedia" - probably very good if one wants to get to advanced level in their Turkish and really get into details of this language. But that´s not a motivated opinion, only my guess

My favourite grammar. It finally understands the vague borders between Turkish parts of speech and the way tense, aspect and modality are tied together in Turkish verb suffixation. I very much recommend it to Turks also. But maybe not to learners taking their first steps.
