Basic course - Units 1-12
''This course in spoken Turkish is designed as a general introduction to the Turkish language. It contains all the essential grammatical materials for learning to speak everyday Turkish, and its vocabulary, though small, is built around a number of the most useful common situations and current topics. It is based on theprinciple that yu must HEAR a language if you are to understand it when spoken, and that you must practice SPEAKING it in order to master its sounds and its forms. A teacher will often not be available for those for whom this book is written. so the course has been made as nearly self-teaching as possible.''
