Verb question

In English, we have sentences such as:


Going to university can be rewarding

Seeing you again is great

Keeping your room clean is absolutely necessary




Happiness is a great virtue


and so on.


My point is how you would say the same in Turkish, i.e., seeing, keeping, going, coming, in the context I have described above. In other words how is it possible to convert a verb into a noun (? I am not good at grammer).

You can use infinitive for that: http://www.turkishclass.com/turkish_lesson_265

For exapmle:

Üniversiteye gitmek taltif olabilir

Seni tekrar görüşmek harika


Verbal nouns have specific use in Turkish: http://www.turkishclass.com/turkish_lesson_322

Odanın temiz tutulması kesinlikle gerekli (The keeping-clean-of-your-room is absolutely necessary)


Hope I translated correctly {#emotions_dlg.shy}
