Selam.I am a kurd from Turkey (but live in Europe though). I have throughout my whole entire life always spoken kurdish with my parents, and i have never really learnt how to speak turkish. Through television and travelling 2-3 times a year to Turkey, i have managed to understand turkish perfectly; i understand every single word when someone is speaking turkish to me.Here is the tricky part; i dont know how to speak turkish! I know what i want to reply, but unfortunately, i cannot put together the words if you know what i mean. How can i train myself to TALK and not just understand turkish? I want it to sound like fluent turkish and not just ´´tourist-turkish´´.Thanks in advance.

i have met someone knows perfect arabic, both traditional and ancient, even arab natives dont know that much. but the problem is he cannot speak arabic! he understand when someone speaks arabic, or any book from library new or old, espceaially old ones.


this is a common problem, and the solution is practicing with a native about one year! it will be hard in the beginning, try to make sentences at kindergarden level first. if there is no native around, find a converstaion book and memorize the common sentenses. from hearing tv, try to repeat common sentences to yourself. these methods will make you self practise.
