Full description for Turkish
Teach Yourself Turkish is a complete course for beginners in written and spoken Turkish. It is also ideal for those wanting to brush up existing knowledge of the language and those who are studying with a teacher and are looking for supplementary material. There are 16 carefully graded and interlocking units. Each unit introduces new language structures firmly embedded in a functional context, which means you concentrate on the uses to which you can put the language in everyday situations. Each unit starts with an opening dialogue accompanied by simple comprehension questions and notes about the language or Turkish culture. Then a small number of language points are fully explained and illustrated by examples. The exercises which follow will check your learning. Finally, at the end of each unit there is a shorter dialogue linked to the opening one. There is comprehensive help with the pronunciation both in the introduction and on the accompanying 60-minute CD, which is available separately (ISBN 0340 871067) or together with the book in a pack (ISBN 0340 871059).At the end of the book there is a Turkish-English vocabulary and a new English-Turkish vocabulary, and an index to the grammar points covered.
