merhaba can arkadaşlarım, 

i have a random question... i´m trying to learn turkish on this lovely website and so far, so good.. but there´s something else and i don´t know what the solution. 

when i type or read some of the words and sentences i´ve learned it´s easy and simple. but when i hear someone speaking turkish ...? i don´t know what they´re saying. maybe i should interact with turkish people in real life but i don´t have any turkish friends where i live to speak to :/ help!

Yeah, I perfectly can relate to your problem.

Turkish is very difficult to understand by ear, because they are speaking so fast.

I´ve been learning Turkish for about 2 years and had some interactions with Turkish people face to face, but I´m still able to understand only the basic words from fast speech and generally the first and the last word of the sentence. Everything in the middle becomes a continuous string of unrecognizable sounds in my ears

The best I understand slow spoken dialogues from Turkish course books, but even there I struggle for example if they pronounce "havaalanında olmalıyım" almost like [avalandolmayım].. yeah! that´s how I wrote down the phrase after listening to it a few times in a recorded dialog :/

Exactly! It´s very frustrating. I know how to speak both English and Arabic, so generally Turkish is easy for me to learn and understand, but it really isn´t easy for me to understand when I hear someone speaking it. :/ 

 

Just like you said, they speak so fast! That´s why I don´t think I´ll be able to understand until I´m almost fluent. Anyway,

Teşekkürler.

İyi günler

That´s relative thing. Maybe because you are slow.

 

I felt the same thing when I was a beginner and they spoke English/Polish/Italian around me.
