Comments about Pimsleur Turkish Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

Before a trip to Turkey, my wife and I wanted to learn a little of the Turkish language, neither of us ever having had any exposure to it before. I chose the Pimsleur CD course at the bookstore because it was the cheapest of all the Turkish courses available.
After going through the first 30-minute lesson, my wife and I looked at each other in amazement at how easily and quickly we had gone from having zero knowledge of Turkish to being able to fluently rattle of the introductory phrases and greetings.
We only managed to get through about 10 lessons before our trip, and we did have to repeat a number of the lessons for reinforcement. When we got to Istanbul, just having a few basic phrases ("excuse me," "thank you," "two ____, please") made a huge difference. Not only did it make getting around easier, but it gave me a level of self-confidence that I wouldn't have otherwise had visiting a new country and unfamiliar culture for the first time.

Comments about Pimsleur Turkish Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

This CD set helps with pronunciation of Turkish. I was suprised how the spoken word differs from the written.

This course is limited in that the student can't compare the pronunciation with the written word.

Improvements: Include at least a PdF for this version.

Otherwise, I enjoy Pimsleur language courses, having used the Italian CD set as well.

    Comments about Pimsleur Turkish Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

    It works! Turkish is one of those languages that isn't related to any other, but when my husband and I had a chance to go to Istanbul, we didn't want to go knowing absolutely nothing. So we tried this introductory conversational course--and we actually picked up a bit of the language. Though we didn't end up with a huge vocabulary, we learned enough to have basic communication with people, and the Turks we met were so happy that we were trying. Plus they complimented us on our accents. It really added to our trip. If you're diligent and do the lessons every day, you can't help but learn. Sometimes we repeated the lessons, because the language was so unfamiliar. But it was fun--and now we can't wait to jump into another language and do a comprehensive course. The method is great!
