Can you distinguish between "be" a member and "become" a member?

Nope, there is no way to do this in Turkish in this sentence.

Is the above sentence some kind of meme in Turkish society? Tried googing"Üye," searching for a picture for a flashcard and discovered a number of images where "Üye olmak istiyorum" figures a lot. It looks like the creators of this course might be enjoying another cool inside joke that would be great to share.

I swear it sounds like "Leo mut istiyorum". It tells me to type what I hear and that's what I hear, but it says it's wrong. Are you telling me that's not what I actually hear? I can assure you it is.

Why don't you allow "wanna"?

That is extremely slang in usage and we don't really accept slang in this course. We also don't accept "gonna" or "ain't" :)

Nor do you accept "istiyom" or "konuşıcaz".
