Can someone explain?

1.Hayran olmak/kalmak,

and

2.to attract attention

Ilgi çekmek

 

Ilgi toplamak

 

 

Hayran    olmak  =   to   admire

 

I admire  your   enthusiasm for  learning   Turkish.

 

Senin  Türkçe  öğrenme  gayretine  hayranım.

 

 

Hayran   kalmak  is  more like  ‘to  be amazed at  something’,  ‘to be fascinated with  something ‘,  ‘  to  be  impressed  by something ‘

 

Onun   dansına    hayran  kaldım -à   I  was  amazed  at  his/her  dance [dancing]

 

 

 

ilgi  çekmek  -   to  draw  attention

 

ilgi   toplamak  -  to  arouse  interest,

 

Çocuk  annesinin ilgisini  çekmek  için ağlıyor -à  The child  is crying  in order  to  draw  his mother’s  attention.

 

Using  “toplamak” with  above  sentence would sound weird.

 

 

 

- Yönetmenin  yeni  filmi  büyük  ilgi   topladı.

 

 The  new  film  of   the [film] director  attracted  a lot  of  interest. [ in other words,  it [the film] was liked  by many people,  its sort of become  popular  among people,  it  attracted many people’s  interest on it,  it  aroused alot of  interest among people ]

 

 

Hope  it helps, may be someone else can explain better.

There is  idiomatic derived form of  " ilgi  toplamak"  which is  ---> "ilgisini   toplamak"  

"to being able to concentrate [focus] on  doing something....."

 

 Bir  türlü  derslere  ilgimi  toplayamıyorum.  ---> I can not  focus on studying. 

 

But  this is not a proper way ,  i mean "dikkatimi  toplayamıyorum" should be used instead.

But if you want to use "present tense", then it is better to say ; "hayranım"

 

Türk diline, tarihine ve kültürüne  hayranım. [ I admire..............]
