Teach Yourself Beginner's Turkish Summary


Teach Yourself Beginner's Turkish by Asuman Celen Pollard

'Teach Yourself Beginner's Turkish' is the right course for you if you really want to learn Turkish but are daunted by the prospect of complicated grammar, classes and coursebooks. This book starts right from the beginning and explains everything in simple English. There are hints throughout to make learning easy and you can learn at your own pace with plenty of practice of each new point. It is a friendly introduction to the language which will help you to understand and speak Turkish sufficiently well to function effectively in basic everyday situations, both social and business. The course will also offer you an insight into Turkish culture. The book consists of 10 graded units introducing you to the basic structures and grammatical points you'll need in everyday situations, such as booking into a hotel, shopping, eating and travelling. New language is introduced through short dialogues and texts which are also on the accompanying recording and there are plenty of exercises to practise each new point as it is introduced. There is a special section on pronunciation and the Turkish alphabet at the beginning of the book to get you started and revision exercises at the end of every unit so that you can check your progress and review any areas of difficulty. By the end of the course you'll be able to communicate in a wide range of real-life situations and have all the practical information you need to enjoy your next trip to Turkey. Two accompanying cassettes or CDs are available separately or in a pack with the book.
