New Language

New Language

Those were hard days, during the war. I felt lonely and very weak since there was nothing to do. There was no electricity, no television, nothing at all but waiting for an end. I felt there was power inside me and I wanted to do something. This thing was to learn the Turkish language. 

 

Under these situations I found a CD with Turkish songs which I liked a lot and I listened to it many times. After a few days, I collected a group of CDs with Turkish songs and movies. Being much influenced by those songs I decided to understand what these people talk about.

 

The war was over at last, I went to college and asked about the Turkish language. Searching for some resources for Turkish language, I found limited books about this subject. When I finished the first book, I found out that I still can't understand any word from any simple conversation. This made me feel frustrated but still willing for more. You can hardly find a book here, called "Turkish language for primary classes". This is a very good book. Till now I read it twice, I now have a small group of good books and one dictionary.

 

It has been one year now and I am now able to understand sentences and simple conversation in Turkish. I am keeping on forward wishing to make something special with this lovely language. What I like more is to visit Turkey one day. One last word I like to add is that when you want something you will do it no matter how hard the situations you live in are.
