I'm not sure how many people are looking to learn Turkish, but for anyone interested these two websites are very helpful and informative:

http://www.turkishbasics.com/

Once you're pretty confident about the positive suffixes the first skill isn't too hard on the English for Turkish speakers course, and doing the course really helps, with everything being in Türkçe. I hope this helps whoever may be interested :)

Nice links! More recommendations from me:

Last but not least, try the English for Turkish speakers course, or just wait for the Turkish for English, which should be here in a couple of months!

The agglutination thing is pretty simple for me, having learned Hungarian. Because of this, the way Turkish uses suffixes isn't so confusing! :)

For instance you've got the sentence "I took a photo of a dog": "Képet készítettem kutyáról"

  • et = Accusative ending (Front-vowel nouns)
  • ett = Past tense suffix (Long; Front-vowel verbs)
  • em = Past tense conjugation for "I" (Front-vowel verbs)
  • ról = About (Back-vowel nouns; In Hungarian you create a photo about something (készíteni = to create))

So altogether literally translated it's "A photo I created about a dog"; "I created a photo about a dog"

yes, I suppose Turkish grammar is not complicated if you speak Hungarian! I tried a few basic skills of the English for Hungarian speakers course and it was pretty easy for me, using the hints for the words of course.

What is your native language btw?

Where are you?! I am not happy with the new way I get the lessons ! No explanations,no nice,no taste at all ! I do not know to whom I need to talk to get back to your lessons ! With your lessons I had always the feeling that you are next to me,watching me,talking with me,teaching me and corrected me ! In time you became like my friend ! I feel like is no taste to continue studying! I am sorry ! I saw your name and I started with complaining! My name is MARA MAXIM,AND I AM STUDYING TURKISH LANGUAGE FOR ABOUT A YEAR.MY MOTHER LANGUAGE IS ROMANIAN,and I AM very upset with the new teacher! THANKS for what I learned from you.
