I realise there is a certain way the turkish 'k' is pronounced, and i can't seem to get it right. Anyone have any tips?
I think you should listen to simplified Turkish conversations for this. It's easy to do if you get used to accents. Try reading these words: Kaplumbağa(turtle) , kalem(pencil), kurbağa (frog), kan(blood), kardeş (sibling)
