Merhaba Kal,


Basically, it's all about repetition. Studies show you typically need around 7 encounters with a new word in a foreign language so that it sticks in your brain.


What I would recommend to you is to pick 10 words as a start that you wish to master. Write them down, read them aloud, do this several times. When you finished, take a rest. After 10-15 minutes, go back and repeat. If you are still in the course of practicing reading and pronunciation, you could first try reading up the words to be learned and try to guess their meaning. If you don't have trouble with pronouncing any more, you could go the other way: read the English equivalents and try to guess the correct translation. Either way, you now have your second encounter. Then, another break and after 1-1.5 hour, do a third one, after 6-8 hours, do a fourth one. Then, the next day, do the fifth one. The day after, do a sixth one. And 3-4 days later, a seventh one. You will surely see major improvement by that time. You are very likely that you learn all your target vocab by that time. And the best is, in no time because all these repetitions typically take 5-10 minutes for 10 words, except for the very first one which might take a bit longer because that's when you first encounter them, you have to write them all down in both languages.


By following this system, step-by-step, you will build up a massive Turkish vocabulary which will help you to start understanding written and spoken Turkish in no time. 😉


Sevgiler,

Merhaba Nico,


Normally "durmak" means "to stand" but in this sense, it means " to look like, to seem".


Hope it helped

merhaba,

İngiliz gibi duruyorsun: is duruyorsun a conjugation of durmak? If so I don't understand in this sentence the meaning of durmak.


selamlar

Merhaba Bridget,


I think you are talking about this sentence "Bir şey değil, rica ederim." The thing is, sometimes we "swallow" the r sound at the end. This is because in Turkish generally a vowel and a consonant should always come after each other (There are a lot of words coming from other languages which don't follow the rule) so the way we pronounce is to add the last word to the first of the next word. This is our tendency as native speakers and we can't do it, we may omit/swallow a word when speaking. So "bir şey" becomes "bişey" in a spoken language.


Hope it helped.


Sevgiler,

Seda

I think Daniel asked something like this ... but with a word like bir .. it sounds like ‘bish’ Should there be a slight ‘shhh’ pronounced at the end of the word or a hard ‘r’?
