Are my sentences correct?


I'm trying to form sentences on my own to use in my everyday life. Could you please tell me if i'm forming them correctly?

I want to go to the gym. = spor salonu istiyorum gitmek. or is it "gitmek istiyorum spor salonu"?

I want to walk. = Yürüyüş istiyorum.

I want to go to the bathroom. = Gitmek istiyorum tuvalet.

I'm hungry. = aç / or is it: "açım" (i'm assuming this is the correct one)?

The sentence order is subject + object + verb, right? What might I be doing wrong?

(Changing the combination on Google Translate usually returns the same result, so I can't be sure if the sentences i'm making are correct or not.)

Thanks in advance!

"I want to walk" -- Yürüyüş istiyorum or Yürümek istiyorum. (It depends on the context)

"I want to go to the bathroom" -- Tuvalete gitmek istiyorum.

"I'm hungry" -- Açım.

If I may ask, would translating "I want to drink tea" to "çay içmek istiyorum" be correct?

"Yürüyüş istiyorum" isn't correct! You'd better say "yürüyüş yapmak istiyorum" if you want to say "I want to take a walk". "Yürümek istiyorum" would be the only cırrect translation for "I want to walk". Everything else is right, though.
