Building Blocks for
Turkish Language Learning

Learning Turkish requires a multi-faceted approach. Besides fundamental vocabulary memorization, pronunciation practice, and grammar drill -- you also need cultural knowledge, to guide you in the everyday way in which Turks express themsleves. You may know the Turkish vocabulary, its pronunciation, and its grammar by heart... but, if you don't know traditional Turkish ways of expression, you may be absolutely unintelligible when you open your mouth to speak.

Turkish folk tales and fables are rich cultural sources -- and the words, terms, and phrases found in them are often used in the traditional speech of modern-day Turks. Consider the well-known Plucked Goose folktale, that you may access by clicking above.
