5.0 out of 5 stars
Turkish (Teach Yourself) - intermediate speakers view, 8 April 2011
I would recommend this book as good learning material both for the beginner and people with some knowledge of Turkish if only to use for reference. I ordered a used version which did look as though it had been round the block and through a charity shop (you should have rubbed the price out) But it was more than adequate for my purposes and a lot cheaper than a new version. Once I have worked through the book I may treat myself to a new version to use for reference.
The asides were also informative including dialect info and Turkish 'shorthand' - what the Turks would say rather than translated Turkish. Having used such phrases, the Turks can see you are really trying with your language and will help you out wherever they can.
Well done to the authors for keeping it real and making it such an easy read and learn.
