Okay so Ive been studying turkish for quite a while now (A couple of years ago and I got my memory refreshed again during this past month), just getting a bit done everyday-mainly grammar. 

Im done with 95% of the grammar on this site on the classes, and also inceased my grammar knowledge from other sites and I read ALOT. 

Ive read all turkish texts on this page more than once (short stories, pronunciation, homework convs....etc etc). Short stories on other pages, song lyrics and Im quite happy with my understanding!

I feel that wth a little vocab help from a dictionary I now understand alot of texts due to the fact of understanding grammar. ONE PROBLEM- I cant make a sentence or say smthg in turkish if my life depnded on it. I just understand.

 

What do I do? I honestly cant even form basic sentences, its driving me crazy!

Ok, but Im so embarassed-Theyre going to be horrible!

 

-Ben tıp fakülteside öğrenciyim. (I am a student at the faculty of medicine)

- önce iki yıl, sürücüme öğrendim. (I learned how to drive two years ago)

-Biraz türkçe konuşbilirim, ama öğreniyorum. (I can speak little turkish but Im learning)

-sonraki haftasonu, opera´ya gitmek isteceğim ama arkadaşımın annesi seyahet ediyor, o yüzden kalmalı lazim.  (Next weekened, I want to go to the Opera but my friends mother is travelling so she must stay with her.)

 

-Arkadaşlarlı gelmeden önce, annem bilmem gerekiyor. (Before I go out with my friends, I must let my mother know)

 

Thats enough humiliation for one day (This took me such a long time )

Looks good overall!

 

#3, small thing: Biraz türkçe konuşabilirim, ama öğreniyorum.

 

For the rest hopefully those more familiar can help...

Tıp fakültesinde öğrenciyim.

İki yıl önce araba kullanmayı öğrendim.

Biraz türkçe konuşabiliyorum, ama öğrenmekteyim.

Gelecek hafta operaya gitmek istiyorum ama arkadaşım annesiyle birlikte yolculuk ediyorlar.

Arkadaşlarımla dışarıya çıkmadan önce anneme bildirmeliyim.

Türkçe biraz konuşabiliyorum, ama öğrenmekteyim.

 

 

I thought #3 was OK? Is Biraz türkçe konuşabilirim, ama öğreniyorum OK? Does it have a little different meaning.

 

Can #2 be done with sürmek somehow?

This is another try-hopefully better than the first time! Experimenting with word order a bit.

 

-I am watching tv

Televizyon izliyorum

 

-I am watching tv with my mother

Annemle televizyon izliyorum.

 

-I am watching an interesting film with my mother on tv

Annemle televizyonda ilginç bir film izliyorum.

 

-I am watching a film with my mother, I think its very interesting but she slept while watching.

Annemle film izliyorum, bence çok ilginç bir film ama izlerken o uyudu.

 

 

-I think the film which is on tv is very interesting.

Bence televizyondeki film çok ilginç.

For #1, the reason the extra ´n´ is needed is because there already is an ending, from http://www.turkishlanguage.co.uk/suffix.htm:

 

Static Position Condition:
Suffix -da/-de - any suffix appended to a soft word ending must begin with a soft consonant -d - according to Consonant Mutation rules
or -ta/-te- any suffix appended to a hard word ending in (p ç t k s ş h f) must begin with a hard consonant -t - according to Consonant Mutation rules
or -nde/-nda when affixed to extended words which end in a vowel.
The Static is the condition of place equates to in, on, at in English. (the locative)
