I'm excited to announce that the Turkish for English speakers course is now in beta! A big congrats to the Incubator volunteers that helped build this course: Selcen_Ozturk, AlexinTurkey, Emel_Bilgin, gamzebilsen, LadyNurington and Ilkei.

If you encounter any issues (bugs or missing translations) please make sure to report them! This helps improve the course for future learners.

Cheers!

Someone needs to insert a gif of when they release Calypso from POTC: At World's End and the guy whispers "I release you from your bonds" or something.

I really do NOT have time to learn one more language at the same time, but I just can't resist Turkish!

I already sleep less than four hour per night, but I guess that if I stop eating dinner, I can free up some time for another language...

Turkish, here we go!! :D
