Not for the beginner,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Turkish Language Explained for English Speakers (Kindle Edition)
I have been learning Turkish for several years and had come to a bit of a standstill where I seemed to be having similar conversations all the time. I bought this book based on the reviews posted and I agree it is definitely not for anyone who doesn't have a good basic knowledge of the language - I wouldn't recommend it if you are a beginner. However, it is ideal if you just need to improve your skills especially in conjuction with a good dictionary for vocabulary. I must admit that I found some of the explanation such as having negative and positive verbs a bit strange, as most books would just describe agglutination to the one verb stem, but you get used to it. The book is easy to read which is great if especially like me , you learn by reading things over and over, although it did seem to me that some points were long drawn out and explained the same thing too repetitively. Great that it is on Kindle, and at a very reasonable price. Generally a good buy - does what it says on the tin.
