It took me less than ten minutes to decide that this book was going back!

The first thing that horrified me was that it is for both English speakers learning Turkish AND German speakers!

The scant explanatory text is in both English and German! Thus every page has both Turkish and German on it. For me just the Turkish would be difficult enough but cluttering everything up with German is - to my mind - totally insane!

Contrary to the product description there don't seem to be any grammar explanations or simple understandable grammar rules.

Vocabulary is assumed. They might give you a translation of the particular word or word ending being dealt with but you're on you own for all the other Turkish words. There isn't even an English (or German) translation of the Turkish presented in the exercises - just space for you to write your answers in.

The book is presented as 93 lessons. Each lesson is about two pages long deals with a small aspect of grammar. There is very little explanation - maybe one or two sentences (in English and German) and most of the content takes the form of tables holding examples in Turkish with space for you to write in the English (or German) equivalent. Answers are not provided...

For instance Lesson 35 deals with the English word "need". There is a table with about 15 Turkish phrases on the left and space on the right for you to write in the English. Then there's another table with eight Turkish words in it and space for you to write in the English. Some letters in the Turkish words are highlighted and I guess that's a clue as to the grammar. Then there are ten lines of Turkish words with space for to make up sentences in Turkish that use the words. Then more of the same...

HASH(0x96d9a8b8) out of 5 stars ridiculous book 23 Nov. 2012
By Charles Campbell - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is terrible, let me say why. It has exercises but no explanations of anything. It is called Turkish Grammar but does not explain any points of grammar. I have use Pimsleur Turkish , Elementary Turkish by Lewis V. Thomas and Colloquial Turkish and they are all excellent. If you do buy this you must realize there is no 'teaching' or description of Turkish at all. Also , there is no answer key, and the website provided in the book for the answer key does not take you to the answers. So its a good book if you already read and speak fluent Turkish. If I could give it zero stars I would.

HASH(0x9762ee70) out of 5 stars Useless Book 26 July 2013
By Juan Florez - Published on
Format: Paperback
As no answer key is available at the study-turkce website, there is no way
someone studying on their own can check whether they have understood the
extremely terse grammar explanations.

HASH(0x9751f888) out of 5 stars Great way to excercise grammar! 23 Sept. 2013
By MarkW98 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book teaches grammar step by step covering all the word endings (there are no prefixes in Turkish, only endings) from simple ones and gradually moving on to the more difficult. Part II is also available to continue study the grammar in depth.

HASH(0x9aba3afc) out of 5 stars Best ever!! 29 Sept. 2011
By goodlip - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the Turkish Grammer 2, and that was just a tiny bit too advanced (but very good book) So I thought Id pick this up and go through it first. I cannot express how important these books have been for me. I have been struggling so hard with Turkish, and these books have saved me out of a dead learning zone. This is a must-have if you are learning Turkish.

Very easy to follow and to understand! Turkish grammar is very hard to grasp for most english speakers, but this helps in understanding the logic behind the structure that Turkish uses in sentence formulation. Very helpful!
