2. Arkadaş
Sen benim en iyi arkadaşımsın.
“You are my best friend.”
So my best friend is Osman and I am sure I talked about him before in my previous videos. So recently, I didn’t call him very much and I think he is a bit sad about that. So I am very sorry.
Osman, sen benim en iyi arkadaşımsın.
3. Güzel
Ne kadar güzel, değil mi?
Let me show something.
Ne kadar güzel, değil mi?
“Isn't it beautiful?”
Oh, look at this beautiful face. So we use güzel for objects or for people. So you can use it for people too like Ne kadar güzelsin.
“You are so beautiful” like that.
4. Uyumak
“to sleep”
Derste uyumak yasak.
“It's forbidden to sleep during the lesson.”

“Would you like some coffee?”
Do you know Turkish coffee everyone? It’s pretty famous actually. It tastes like Espresso a bit.

Üç Vakte Kadar bir kismet var sana.
7. Harika

“We should respect people's choices.”
9. Inanmak

Ben senin başaracağına inanıyorum.
“I believe you will succeed.”
I believe you will learn Turkish. So Ben senin başaracağına inanıyorum.
10. Sağlıklı

“For a healthy life, exercise is a must.”
11. Sevgi

“All you need is love.” And respect.
12. Teşekkürler.

So Teşekkürler, Teşekkür ederim! Sağol.
13. Para
Para mutluluğu satın alabilir mi?
“Can money buy happiness?”
What do you think? Can it buy?
14. Tatil

“I plan to go on vacation next week.”
I don’t plan. I have to work and work and work. I have to shoot videos for you.
15. Misafirperverlik
Okay. This one is a bit hard I think but I know you can do it.
Misafirperverlik Türk kültürünün önemli bir parçasıdır.
“Hospitality is an important aspect of Turkish culture.”
Yeah, we love everyone. And I heard that from many of my foreigner friends when they went to Turkey. They said the people were very friendly and helpful.
So I think if you get lost or if you have any problem, then I am sure many Turkish people will be very willing to help you. So don’t worry.
Okay. So we are finished. How do you feel? Do you think you can remember all of them? And I hope to see you guys in the next video. Bye-bye!
