This language is very interesting to me. It is quite different from my native Bosnian (because it is S-O-V language, and my language is basically S-V-O). In my native language almost all of the permutations of these words are possible, while in Turkish they are mostly not possible. In my native language (similar in Serbian and Croatian), there are around 8000 originally Turkish words so it is helping a bit in learning. I learn Turkish on Duolingo for 9 months and I think I learned a lot, at least, I think I could make myself understood to someone in Turkey without using my English knowledge. Thanks Duolingo, I am going to complete your Turkish language tree, hopefully in 3 months.

I've been at it about a year. Quite different from my native American English. It's been a fun challenge.

I am also learning Turkish on Duplingo while living in Turkey! I have been speaking for years but decided that I need to learn the grammar as well. I see I've made some mistakes which goes to show how wonderfully tolerant the Turks have been with me! I am primarily studying Italian and I recommend to study your native language as a native speaker of the language you are trying to learn. Duolingo allows you to do that and I find it helpful. iyi şanslar!

Have you noticed much variation or slang in the language in Turkey that differs from the language we learn on here?

Hey Connor, it might be quite a late reply but you should not bother with slang or daily language. Naturally, there are some variations, additions, omissions and slang that may affect our daily speaking but you can hardly see one in the written language and frankly the proper Turkish is much better (albeit being longer) sounding. This may not be the place to give detailed examples but to count a few, we say Nasıl gidiyor (How is it going) instead of Nasılsın/ız. Also Naptın (Ne yaptın - What did you do, used in the same meaning as how are you doing), naber (ne haber - what's the news, same) napıyon/nabıyon (ne yapıyorsun, what are you doing, same meaning as above). We add -yaaa at the end of sentences, it sounds immature though. Men generally add some swear slang in the abbrevated form at the end of sentences, again better not do that. List goes on but don't mind it much. Hopefully, it gives you a somewhat clear concept.

Merhaba Fatema,
I started learning Turkish about a year ago and I must say I love it. I would not like to miss it anymore.
My native language is German that is totally different from Turkish at least concerning grammatic, some words are very close to German words but those are rare.
As somebody wrote it's a great challenge and it is so much fun!!
Keep on learning and good luck!
