Merhaba Turkish speakers!

I wonder how well you will understand Azeri and Turkmen (and vice versa) after having studied Turkish?

I personally can understand both without even studying them but Azeri is kind of easier for me. Mostly it's the same thing just pronounced differently and some words coming from Russian so if you're exposed to them for a little you'll get used to their way of talking.

Welcome but I guess it'd be a little bit harder for you since you're not a native speaker.
