Hi everyone my name is Glenn and I come to Turkey and in particular Alacati on a regular basis and hopefully i'm going to finish my home there this year.Don't know if there are any members up my way but if there are then Hello and of course Hello to you all.I married a Turkish lady many years ago but have always lived in the Uk but that is about to change inshalla in the near future although language is a major problem for me,i've been coming for 27 years and it's still a blur so i may become mute,plenty to learn and share i'm sure!!!!

Re: Newbi

Welcome Glenn, I hope that you get your place finished soon. Sometimes having a native speaking partner is an impediment to learning the language.

Re: Newbi

My missus can speak decent Turkish but will not when I am here. When I was away working for 3 months we hired a chap from the village to help with the orchard, she communicated well and he understood everything that she wanted (now now Saoirse keep the filth out of this). When I am in the UK she copes perfectly well, but when I am around she leaves it to me. my Turkish is not much better but it is my 'job' to speak. (better that doing the ironing anyway).

Re: Newbi

I think itís the same the world over.

My wife is a native Russian speaker and I rely on her too much to the detriment of my learning the language myself.

She will spend hours with me practicing grammar and phrases then says I have done well. She then goes on to tell me not to use them in public as no one will understand me, WTH!

Teaching your partner how to drive is a big no no. Teaching your partner a language is imo equally dangerous.

Sorry

As if Philip would be tempted to comment on your wife's needs whilst you were away.

I have tried unsuccessfully to learn Turkish. I can muster my way through French and easily get a grasp of any Latin American languages (Spanish, Italian etc) but with Turkish I failed miserably. I could never form links with words which would help me remember them.
I could learn common phrases but next day they have gone. I have heard people say that it is based on Latin but I disagree. I think that it is based on Arabic.

It goes to illustrate the learning power of babies/children in early years. You can put a child in a foreign speaking environment and within two years they are speaking fluently. Adults seem to encounter mental blocks.
