Alp: Yarın programın nasıl?

Alp: Ne yapacaksın o 2 saat?
Zeynep: Eve gitmek ve uyumak istiyorum. Çünkü Saat 3’ü çeyrek geçe arkadaşlarla sahilde yürüyüş var. Biraz enerji gerekiyor.
Alp: Anlaşıldı. Kaçta bitiyor yürüyüş?
Zeynep: Saat 5 gibi.
Alp: Yarın görüşemiyoruz yani…
Zeynep: Maalesef, akşam’a kadar doluyum. Cuma günü buluşmak ister misin?
Alp: Peki… Cuma görüşürüz.
Zeynep: Görüşürüz. Kendine iyi bak.
Alp: Sen de.

Translation

Alp: How is your schedule tomorrow?
Zeynep: I look at my agenda immediately. At eight o’clock there is a meeting with Ahmet Bey. Then I have to be in Beşiktaş at 9:50. I meet Osman for lunch at 12 o’clock. I have an availability of 2 hours at noon.
Alp: What are you going to do for those 2 hours?
Zeynep: I want to go home and sleep. Because quarter past 3 o’clock I go walking with friends on the beach. It needs some energy.
Alp: Got it. What time does the walk end?
Zeynep: Around 5 o’clock.
Alp: So, we can’t see each other tomorrow…
Zeynep: Unfortunately, I am full until the evening. Would you like to meet on Friday?
Alp: Well… See you on Friday.
Zeynep: See you. Take care of yourself.
Alp: You too.

    What Turkish Learners Are Saying…

    I’ve been learning Turkish for quite a few years now, on and off, including courses in Turkey. But I was getting frustrated whenever I heard or read a basic phrase and couldn’t understand it. But this course is the best, most logical and engaging course I had thus far. So glad I found fluentinturkish.

    Lauren Firincioglu, Australia

    Very systematically taught. It builds up really well, and makes learning really easy!

    A.R., Turkey

    A very good source of information to add to your studying repertoire. Physically hearing an explanation has helped things to click for me that reading alone would not allow.

    Karissa Gravel, USA

    I was thinking about it over the last two days since I found your website. I’ve just been doing free courses so far and I wondered whether to spend the money not knowing if I would like it or not. But I have been pleasantly pleased with the course so far and look forward to continuing on in it. Sincerely,

    Lynn Schneider, USA
