A helper for the Turkish language on Duo.

Hello, everyone! I am here to help those having struggle with anything. I was once a native turkish contributor for german-turkish here because I am a student in the department of translation and interpreting studies(german-turkish-english) at Ege University. If you need help or want to learn anything about the lessons or the sentences with which you face here, don't hesitate to ask me.

Hey Taylan, seems as if something went wrong yesterday due to an update.
Could you please submit a new application for the incubator? It is not visible there anymore. Thank you!
Edit: keep it short, as it's not your first ;-) and I forgot to add the link, here it is: https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply/de/tr

Oh my dear, I see you in the incubator now, but your green ring seems to have vanished. I'll ask about that once I am at home. We Germans have a saying: Gut Ding will Weile haben. Good things need their time. And it is apparently very good that you're back again ;-)

Hi.any advices for learning turkish?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteffiBookworm

Curiosity and patience :)
The grammar concepts are not so difficult to understand, but putting them into practice without forgetting a suffix here and there is not as easy as it seems - at least for me.
And the vocabulary is quite different, because it is a different language family.
Even French loanwords look very different when written phonetic ;-)
So for me this means patience repetition and occasionally even going some steps back when I notice that I make errors with a specific suffix or grammar concept.
I personally feel that the new crown system helped me because it encouraged me to do more repetitions.

Definitely appreciate this, since there seem to be few mods/contributors active in Turkish these days for us humble beginners. :)
