Have fun but also seriously learn!
It is important to think of grammar as something that helps you. We are adults and we do not learn the same way babies do. The curriculum (at the end of three levels) gives you all the grammar you need for fluency (including B1 level grammar) with explanations and drills. If you still have a question, you can ask the instructors after each step.
Logic of Turkish: How Can You Learn Faster With This Approach?
You won’t forget what you learn. You will maintain your enthusiasm!
Our brain is designed to survive under a huge load of information it is receiving every day. That’s why, when you see a new word or structure, you generally forget the next day. But that’s fine. You just need to consider this fact and repeat what you learn regularly. For that reason, each module has a short review part that will make new vocabulary and grammar stick.
As you see your fast progress, you will want to learn more and more.
BONUS: A short story: Küçük Kara Balık is a fable written by Samed Behrangi. It’s a very captivating story and you’ll find vocabulary help under each page. As you read the story, you’ll practice what you have been learning and also have fun!

Does It Really Work?:
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 couldnt understand it. But this course is the best, most logical and engaging course I had thus far. A lot of knowledge, energy and effort clearly went into it. I’m really happy with my Turkish level and I understand almost everything. So glad I found fluentinturkish.
Very systematically taught. It builds up really well, and makes learning really easy!
