şemsiyeni, what is the last i for?
It's the accusative case marker, because şemsiyen is the direct object of al.
Could götürmek be used here instead of almak?
In theory, yes. I am adding it now :)
would someone help me to find a group online to practice speaking Turkish? much appreciated.
Something is wrong with this sentence. I think the verb is incorrect. I think instead of almak we should use götürmek.
