why is it haftadir here, is this the dir for statement of fact


This suffix looks exactly like the "statement of fact" suffix but has a different meaning. When you are talking about a period of time that is still continuing, you must use the -DIr suffix. For example "Ben beş senedir Türkçe öğreniyorum" "I have been learning Turkish for 5 years." :)


however this is not taught in this course, and needs to be removed. I'll take care of it :)
