Summary

Are you looking for a good beginners' guide to learn Turkish? Do you have Turkish roots? Do you want to visit Turkey?
 

The reality is that if you know Turkish it will make your trip and experience in Turkey 10 times better. People love to hear foreigners speak their local language, and Turkey is no different. People will open up and smile more if you can speak a little bit of this beautiful and rare language. Turkey is a beautiful country that is often overlooked. Turkey has a majestic and stunning landscape, striking architecture, and a rich history. 
 

I am a very proud Turk who loves Turkey and the Turkish language and wants to make sure that this language is learned by as many people as possible. I am a Turkish linguist with various higher education degrees in Turkish, and I spent most of my life studying and teaching the language. I have worked with hundreds of happy foreign students in the last 20 years. My experience has helped me figure out what is the best way to learn this very difficult language. This is why I have laid out my life’s work in teaching Turkish to foreign students to create a simple and understandable book that will help someone learn the basics of Turkish in the fastest time possible. Turkish is an extremely hard language - that’s why a simple and well-thought-out guide is the best way to learn Turkish.

Too fast

Its a shame that the narration is so fast because the content would be really good otherwise. I have some very basic understanding of Turkish due to having Turkish friends but I struggled to keep up

love to learn Turkish!

I really want to learn Turkish language and since it is a phonetic language and pronunciation is very regular, I think I can easily learn it just what this book has promised. Learn to speak basic Italian in just 5 days or less is amazing. The ability to speak different languages is an asset and This is an easy to understand application of learning the language. I'm very impressed!

Listening torture. Not helpful to learn Turkish

I was lucky to listen or other language audio books and I would wish that the authors (Yusuf Demir, Ezgi) would have done this too. In machine gun shooting speed she is shooting out phrases and words. It's impossible to learn there anything. I am regretting that I downloaded it.

I really enjoyed how nicely paced this course was, I would recommend this audiobook to an absolute beginner or just someone who wants to go back and review their Turkish. I have never tried a Living Language course before. What I have to say is that this audiobook really helped me improve my Italian and even build upon it.

Easy and comfortable!

I have spent some years off and on trying to learn Turkish; audio books, books, video, etc. This audio book is the first audio book program that really speaks to me. The most simple and brilliant aspect of the approach involves building scenarios.
