Buying Some Bread
Lesson 4noobie Turkish Noobie
Buying Some Bread
One of the best parts of being in a foreign country is buying candy, snacks, or other local treats from the store. Today, we're equipping you with the essentials to buy anything you want so, at very least, you won't starve on your next trip to Turkey.
Psst! Want to access
everything in this lesson?
I like that version of the song in the fun section. Where's the Turkish music though? I think the fun sections need some songs in Turkish with karaoke style subtitles :)

Justin. Have to agree with the comment above, would be helpful if model answers appeared. For example I know we had the word for apple, but I can't remember in which section we heard it. Thanks
May 02, 2013
Thanks a lot for the feedback. I PROMISE we'll get this added within the week.

I have never gotten to do the "FUN" because I cannot do the translate. I try several times, but then frustration and I quit. Then I go to the comment section and all are bragging about the fun section!
May 05, 2013
Very nice..
May 21, 2013
What`s the answer of the 3rd question?
May 24, 2013
Nice! Spanish is my native language so it was really cool to listen to that song on the fun section :)
Jun 10, 2013

Enjoy :)

Justin, it would be so helpful to put a search for the lesson i.e. lesson 4... And go go there. It is a little tiring scrolling down on an ipad! Thanks, md
Aug 21, 2013
That's the truth! Let us get to Lesson 100 next week - we've got some new features planned for the site (including search) then :)
Aug 21, 2013

Where is lesson 2 from this series? The lessons are not in order...
Sep 02, 2013
There are a lot of lessons that are missing!
Sep 02, 2013
The song in part fun is really great :-D Thanks for lessons. Is really very easy learn turkish in this way.
Sep 03, 2013
Hey...Justin...!! Amazing way to learn Turkish...really appreciate your guys work..! Guys join me on FB "HAFIZ MUGHAL" to have Student group Discussion ..
Sep 06, 2013
is one supposed to ace the review in order to unlock the fun??
Sep 17, 2013
Thanks, this is a great tool and so useful. That said, I think it would be even better if the review included only the vocab from the lesson. It seems to go beyond working on what is learned in the lesson.
Sep 21, 2013
Thats great
Oct 05, 2013
Thanks! Nice lesson!

For the last review question, how is:

buyurun dört tane elma

wrong? Thanks :)
Oct 18, 2013
It's definitely not wrong. :)

I just added your sentence to the list of acceptable responses.

Çok teşekkür ederiz!

Teşekkürler, sizi çok seviyorum, TTT forever!

At around 3:24 in the Speaking part, what does she say? Beş tane something var mı?
Nov 04, 2013
Beş tane kedi var mı?

Nov 04, 2013
Oh ok! I knew the word kedi so I am mad at myself that I dıdn't catch that! But it sounded like kid var mı to me. lol. So far I have been learning Turkish through other sites and they all go very slow. I LOVE this site because I can hear things at a little faster pace like people would actually speak it.

Hi, I think you missed the Hoşçakalın ın the Vocab
Nov 10, 2013
It,s great

How much is it = Kas tane para?

Is correct?
Mar 28, 2014
Kaç para?

But simply "ne kadar?" is better when asking how much something costs.
Mar 28, 2014
kaç para? veya Ne kadar?

Mar 28, 2014

Question #2 says "which" of the following is the way to say goodbye. In my mind, I thought there was only one answer. Maybe change it to "mark all the ways to say goodbye."
Nov 04, 2014
Question: Why do we only need to say 'Ekmek Var Mı?" Does this sentence not need to specify who has bread? I feel like there is no person. Is it just assumed?
Nov 28, 2014
Merhaba Mark - you're technically right. We generally keep that construction out of noobie lessons.

However, you hear "blah var mı?" all the time in colloquial Turkish in which "you" is implied. At a restaurant, it's perfectly okay to say "bira var mı" instead of "biranız var mı." Same for if you're looking for something at a store.

If we were asking someone if they themselves specifically have the bread, then yes, we would need to add the personal suffix in there.

The bread looks very attractive in the picture by the way;)))). Nice motivation technique to learn the material for those who don't want to starve in Turkey. Thanks!:)

This lesson was really fun, thank you!

Hi justin
thanks for your effort in this site , nice to know that u r interested in IOS development and turkish language :)

it would be nice if each user has sort of a daily goal of points to achieve instead of how many lessons per day, because some lessons are very much easy and others are hard. also some would like to learn faster and dedicate more time so maybe the user could have the ability to set their daily targeted points

It was my first time in the Fun section, and that was fun... and funny to hear the song in French, my second language! I was expecting something Turkish. ;-) Just joined your site and am very excited to learn from you here. For all the hard work you've put it into it, çok teşekkürler!
Oct 17, 2020
I am surprised we do not have to add "lar" to "elma" when there are four of them.
