DuoLingo Turkish Club

Recommended Posts

For those of us interested in learning Turkish, I highly recommend the program DuoLingo. It's free, and available on your desktop or as an app. I have just started a Turkish club through DuoLingo, so if anyone is interested in joining just download the app or find it online, and use the code P25XNW! 

 

Cheers!

My wife and I have been using Duolingo for about 4 weeks and thoroughly recommend it. there are a few issues with it requiring American English replies but all in all it is excellent.

Hi Ibrahim, yes I absolutely agree the site has opportunity to expand and become more inclusive, but personally I think they're doing a great job thus far. You do not need to be a native English speaker to use Duo Lingo in learning a second language.

Greenstein, thank you for joining! All members of this forum and anyone who is interested is encouraged to do so. Even if we just get a few members, to have a small group where we can ask questions and practice Turkish among each other may be very beneficial. Teşekkürler!

Downloaded the app....its pretty dang good!

I will definitely share this app!

As long as you have access to American English vocab. What on earth is a 'grocery store'? bakkal = shop

 

It won't accept examination. It has to be exam!

 

I shouldn't complain it is free.

Tip for the Duolingo site. It you are doing it on a pc and you get one wrong you can copy the wrong answer and paste it next time the question comes up, amend it to avoid copying out the whole sentence.

A club on Duo Lingo is a space for a group of people who are learning the same language. We can see each other's progress, communicate a but, and I believe they are in the process of adding additional features to make it more interactive. Over all, it is a great tool for learning Turkish, very easy and intuitive. You do not need a Facebook account to join, just the code I provided in my OP.

Great program to learn Turkish !   You guys were all right !    You have to be careful on your work selection however.    I had a friend I went to Turkish language school at DLI in Monteray, CA (Defense language Institue) (Language school for the CIA, USAF, USA, USN (All foreign languages) with and he almost got killed in Adana when he was trying to catch a shared taxi cab ride and he was trying to yell out "Dolmus" but instead yelled out "Domus".   So he was trying to call everyone a "Pig" instead of trying to get a ride from a Dolmus.   I never let him down because of that ...we still laugh about that event even today...It's like when I was in Iraq and this Kurdish kid thought his slang English was great until he went up to a U.S. special forces black dude and said "What's up sister?" and the dude punched this Kurd right in the mouth almost knocking him out.   I immediately told him that a "Brother" is a dude and a "Sister" is a girl.  Have to get it straight...This Kurd is in America now and we never forget telling that story/I never let him forget that story.   The best way to learn the vowel pronunciation and get your vocabulary increased:    Practice your grammer about 20 minutes a day and your vocabulary about the same amount of time....and talk Turkish any opportunity you can get.   Good luck arkadaslar!   Bol sanslar (Lot's of luck) friends!    P.S.   Anyone who likes Turkey will always be friends with me !!!
