Psst! Want to access
everything in this lesson?
That just answered many questions I've always had about the dir suffix. Great lesson.

In the Language Points passive voice section, the example "Bana topu alıyor." and "Bana top alınıyor." -- should these use atmak instead of almak?

Thanks! Good catch. It's fixed now :)

I would expect in the last sentence instead of boğazda -> Boğaz'da, because it is a name?

Yeah, we think that's better as well. boğazda would be correct if we were talking about a generic straight, but since the meaning here is obviously the Bosphorus Straight, Boğaz'da is better. We changed it.

Teşekkür ederiz :)

Aylin Great work dear...! I know You try your best to speak as slower as possible..

Hi Talha!

Thank you. I'm impressed you're going for the advanced lessons - I think it's sometimes a great idea to challenge yourself with something that is way beyond your current level.

It's probably a better idea to go through all the easier lessons first, then work up to intermediate and advanced. We will publish a "recommended order" for the lessons within the next couple weeks, so that should definitely help. Right now, it's a bit of an all-you-can-eat buffet. Sorry about that! :)

Teşekkür ederiz :) Well, while i was hearing you i felt like i could understand 70% of what you have spoken easily ,

My Main problem is to speak , Understanding is much better then speaking as i watch SOAP OPERAS in Turkce offenly & such a big fan of Turkish serails...;)

Girl i am gonna change my routine and follow your order sequence First = beginners , second =intermediaries and then move to Advance, if that's the better way...Anyways...Thanks for the advice...Be Blessed...;)

Speaking in this lesson could not be downloaded!

Should be all fixed!

By the way, if this ever happens, you just have to right-click the link and "save as." The file is there, we just accidentally didn't set the property that treats it as a downloadable instead of a link. But always let us know and we can fix it! Thanks for reporting :)

wow.. following the podcast entirely in Turkish was tough! I managed to catch a lot of it, but there's still a lot that I couldn't.

Any chance of transcripts being made available of the Turkish-only podcasts in the future (for weaker, newer advanced learners such as myself) ? It doesn't have to be in English, just in Turkish would be enough.

Yes, that would be awesome. The course is the best I have ever seen, and I have learned several languages. I have gone through all the previous levels with no prior background in Turkish. I hope, you are still there....
