My name is Meltem and I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey. My Spanish partner Lázaro wants to learn Turkish so to help him, I am now creating material that is both entertaining and approachable for beginners. Anyone who is interested in learning Turkish is welcomed to join us! (Only in weekdays)
Çalışıyor musun yoksa okuyor musun?
In this episode, we introduce a major conversation starter. Do you work or do you study? You’ll find examples of some jobs, and learn how to say that you study.
Dani and the Dolphin 2
In this episode, I walk you through the story about Dani and the Dolphin, translate it from Turkish to English (not word by word but just to give you the general idea). I then distinguish between two forms of past tense in Turkish (dı and mış). If you have any questions, or suggestions for future episodes, please find me on Instagram (meltem barcelona)
A Message from Imogen
Thanks so much for checking in with Let's Learn Turkish. This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Imogen, a Turkish learner who left a voice message. I am sharing it with you so that it inspires you to bring more Turkish into your life.
Dani and the Dolphin
In this episode, I narrate a story about a little boy named Dani, who meets a Dolphin called Ömer in Barcelona beach, and travels with him to Istanbul to visit his grandparents
Turkey has recently made headlines for transforming Hagia Sofia museum into a mosque. Taking this as a point of departure, we talk about religions in this episode.
Making a Shopping List
Hi Let's Learn Turkish Listeners. As per some of you requested, we are now practicing dialogues. This episode is no exception. We are having a conversation with my podcast guest (my mom) who tends to buy me stuff from my native Turkey before visiting me in Spain. With her, we are going through a shopping list - items which she would buy me from Istanbul before her visit. Please rate this podcast from whichever platform you use to access it, and subscribe. I look forward to hear from you on Instagram Meltem Barcelona.
