How to practice Turkish listening skills

I've been learning Turkish for nearly a month now using doulingo but when I hear anyone speaking Turkish I am unable to undertale Anything. How can I improve my listening?

There is a podcast called Turkish Tea Time. The audio phrase book here could also be useful:
BE - https://www.50languages.com/phrasebook/en/tr/
AE - https://www.50languages.com/phrasebook/em/tr/
Both have mp3 downlads and there is an app. You could also try to listen to Turkish music, there are sites like Lyricst Translate where you can find lots of lyrics and translations.
Happy learning :-)

Stef : oui, je viens de le regarder pendant 30 minutes ! je me régale ! J'ai rencontré une jeune femme turque dans ma ville, avec qui je converse de temps en temps, c'est beaucoup mieux pour travailler ! Je regarde aussi des émissions politiques en turc, sur l'ordinateur, mais...... je comprends seulement quelques mots :-)

Merci pour ce site qui m'intéresse et me sera très utile ! :-)

Je suis contente que tu l'aimes :)
Moi, j'ai téléchargé les audios sur mon lecteur mp3 et je les écoute souvent en faisant le menage par exemple. Heureusement, on peut choisir entre deux versions, avec ou sans la voix en allemand/français/anglais... Avec cette aide je les comprends mieux et j'ai toujours un petit moment pour penser et comparer ma phrase avec la traduction ;) Génial!

Stef : décidément, il faut absolument que j'aie un lecteur !!! mais moi je suis du" 19è siècle", j'ai "appris" l'ordi il y a 10 ans et je n'avais plus 20 ans depuis longtemps.... :-)

I am also horrible at listening in Turkish. I am fine with other languages. I just have a problem with Turkish. I love the Turkish Tea Time podcasts. I listen almost every day, and I've learned a lot of grammar. I really enjoy the podcasts, but I don't think they are helping my listening very much. There is also an app called Beelinguapp where you can listen to stories in Turkish while reading in Turkish and/or another language. I also use Lyricstraining.com. I listen to the songs and fill the gaps in the lyrics. Often I listen to the same line more than once while I try to match my vocabulary and grammar knowledge with what I am hearing. I now have an understanding of which sounds are the most trouble, and I am working on improving.

A month is not very long to have studied a language. Don't expect to know everything all at once. You will slowly improve. Just keep practicing.

Nerida : Yes! ... I have been learning for 2 years. Since 6 months I can understand simple sentences, spontaneously, without thinking about the construction of the sentence ...... a real joy !
