I haven’t posted much these past two week. It seems that I really needed a break! My mind is literally exhausted from all the effort that goes into language learning. It’s true that I enjoy it, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it comes easier -especially if you are working on several other projects!
I’ve just started learning Turkish this week. One of my best friends speaks Turkish, she’s currently studying in Istanbul and I can’t wait to surprise her by talking to her in this language. We also share the same love for Asian languages and culture (Korean and Japanese in particular, but that’s a mission for another year!
Alright, since I’m a total beginner to Turkish I’ll have to start from the very basics.
I want to compile here a list of vocabulary and topics that I want to master by the end of the next two months.
What I’m planning to do for now is to publish weekly posts that will summarize and give an overview on some of the Turkish I’ve learnt. I thought I’d make this relevant to you as well and include a translation to other languages I know or have been studying. Since I have absolutely no background in Turkish I will start from the greetings and the basic vocabulary with their corresponding translation in English, Italian, Arabic, Spanish, German, and French!
I’ve been thinking about the best format for presenting the sentences, and possibly having a monthly pdf copy that you could easily download and use as review, or maybe I’ll put it as an image… Oh well, but until I have that figured out, I don’t want to keep delaying this post that is already long overdue!

P.S. Thank you David for the corrections, and if you spot any mistakes feel free to let me know too; I am, in fact, just on a learning journey and your input is always welcome!
