Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend that you spend as much time as possible learning 1) 'special' Turkish vocabulary and 2) the Turkish idioms. For the first learning need, we provide the Essential Turkish Headwords, Turkish Conjunctions, and Geopolitical and Historical Dictionary pages. For the second need, have a look at our 'weird and wonderful' Turkish Idioms -- from A to Z pages.
In the way of tools, we also provide Mike Thomas' Turkish-English-Turkish Interactive Dictionary for Windows, Taner Nalbat's WinMekMak Verbs Conjugator for Windows, and Turgut Kalfaoğlu's Vocabulary Builder for DOS -- that you can download from our website, *free* of charge!
And when you take a break from vocabulary and idioms, try...
2) Using Turkish self-teach courses with or without cassette tapes...
But, for a lighter read, we also suggest (by the same publisher) a more recent book with exactly the same title and general format of G.L.'s book, but by two new writers on Turkish -- Asumen and David Pollard. If you overlook the audaciously extravagant claim they make (that you'll be able to converse at an intermediate level in Turkish after completing their book), then you're in for a very good read and you'll be pleased with this modern, helpful self-teaching guide.
Three other products of note are...
Some others, for example...
And, we also have to mention the "best" compact Turkish language reference on the market...the "Turkish Language Phrasebook" by Tom Brosnahan (and we too) for Lonely Planet Publications. It's a truly modern phrasebook for the new-age 00's...
If you're a real 'computer-person', you're sure also to like the Redhouse, Turkish-English-Turkish Talking Dictionary on CD ROM. It's a great product with over 75,000 headwords and more than 20 hours of recorded sound...(Note: It's also available at Turkish Computer stores and sometimes you get it free in Turkey -- when you buy other Turkish Software or Internet products.)
Still another way to improve your Turkish is to sharpen your pronunciation skills by listening to the voice recordings on our website. For example, "Accent on Turkish" is quite a good, albeit basic, introduction to Turkish accenting, stressing and phrasing. See the Sounds of Turkish Index page for other recording-rich pages...
Finally, we suggest your consideration of our Enhanced 'Learning Practical Turkish Website on CD'. Among other things, it's got a lot more voice recordings than we provide online. And we think you'll find it very effective to browse our entire site (plus the enhancements) -- without having to be connected to the Internet!!! Let us know if you'd like complete information about it...
