Have you ever caught yourself wondering, "Man, I wish I knew some Turkish people that I could practice my newfound Turkish skill that I have been gaining from the awesome Duolingo course?!" Well, think no longer.

Selcen came up with the ingenious idea of creating a group in which you, the English speaking Duolingo community, can easily reach out to the Turkish speaking Duolingo community to help each other learn. This will be a language exchange opportunity like no other.

Disclaimers: Please act like a normal, sane, respectable, non-creepy human being on the group. This group is not for finding an international lover, bullying, or fighting. We should foster an open learning environment that allows for meaningful cultural exchange. Please abstain from profanity in the group and have fun!

Hi Alex :)

Thanks for posting this! I had just replied to Selcen's post with some questions (at about the same time you posted this, apparently... smiles), as Google Translate didn't really translate her post very well... (I sorted most of it out; but, then realized if I had to use Google Translate to figure out the post, then perhaps it was not intended for folks at my level.. ;) ).

I don't know what would be better (worse)? Should I repeat my question here, so others who may see your thread and not hers may benefit, or would it be better to link her post, so all the answers to the question I have are in one place? (I would have sent a PM to the two of you; but, I don't see any way to do that...).

Thanks!

Lisa :)
