Some people who are fluent in Turkish use this course to learn English. This was especially true before the English for Turkish speakers course was created. So occasionally, there will be responses in Turkish that new learners will not understand. But it is a great feeling of progress when you start to get it!
I agree, a year ago, i would try to copy and paste to Google Translate and since duo forums lack cut and paste i would type the sentence painstakingly to translate, well i just discovered I, now, understand most of it, enough to get the gist of the sentence, occasionally i will look for meanings of a word here or there. So new students, don't be discouraged, just keep on doing your lessons regularly and soon you will own a new language to be yours for ever
