My technique for learning a new language is to eventually start reading the New Testament in the target language. This trick has worked pretty well inside the Indo-European family tree, and I've acquired a reading knowledge of Afrikans, Italian, and Esperanto on my own.

I'm hoping to start reading Incil soon.

Meanwhile, my language partner friends gave me a copy of the Nasrettin Hoca stories in Turkish, and I'm translating 'em at the rate of one a week.

Hello erni,
welcome to the Turkish Class Forums.

If you have some vocabulary and have a chance to talk to others in Turkish you could build some basic sentences easily. At the beginning make it simple, make it short and make it with the infinitive.

The infinitive form correspondes to the English verb with "to". For instance "istemek" is "to want". Instead "to" we have the infinitive suffixes -mak and -mek in Turkish.
The verb istemek is very useful. In present continuous tense we say "istiyorum" (I want).

You can use this with or without other verbs :

Kahve istiyorum. (I want coffee)
Kahve içmek istiyorum. (I want to drink coffee)

Gitmek istiyorum.
Gitmek istemiyorum.

Using adjectives can be very easy too:

Çok güzel. (Very nice)
Çok iyi.
Çok pahalı.
