    Merhaba kardes!

    Can you speak Azeri? When watching television in Turkey, I have a tendency to watch Azeri TV to see how much of it I understand. I actually managed watched 'A Knights Tale' in Azeri. :lol:

    Well, I understood 'A Knights Tale' in Azeri. I deserve at least a medal for that, don't I? :cry2:

    You're right though, I am quite sad. I also watch the Kyrgyz channels when I can. Although it must be said, other than the odd familiar word, I really can't understand what the hell they're on about. I like their hats though. They're almost as good as old school Turkish hats. I got me one the other day, proper retro like. :gangster:

    I can safely say that I'm not Kurdish. Not that there's anything wrong with being Kurdish. They're a great people who've produced some fine individuals over the course of history. Salahaddin Al-Ayyubi is one that springs to mind.

    The fact of the matter is that as Turkic peoples, we all have a mixed ancestry. The pure Turkish race 'died' long ago as a result of Ottoman policy. The policy whereby you are 'Turkish' if you're Muslim and not so if you're otherwise. Thus we had periods of Turks fighting against Turks, brother fighting against brother. Sad times.

    So are you, yourself, from Britain or Azerbaijan?

    'Daglar' is one I hear and I think "Oh ****, I actually understood something! Mum, mum, come quick! You wouldn't ****ing believe it, but I understood the man with the funny hat on TV!"

    It's because native English speakers talk at a rate faster than you can comprehend, and the words they speak are distorted by colloquialism and their accents.

    English, and most other languages are very different from Turkish. Where, in Turkish, the language is spoken as it is written and written as it is spoken, English and most other languages are otherwise.
    I have noticed that too when trying to listen to Turkish. When I speak with my Turkish boyfriend on msn and he has friends over I certainly still can't understand much when he is talk?ng to them except for a few words I have already memorized. yet when I watch (and hear) news in Turkish I can now understand the j?st of alot of what is spoken. Because they have to speak the language clearly and concisely for news so everyone can understand. So might be a good idea for Xandar to try watching news in English at first, do you think?

    I don't worry about it though. If I keep at it, Im hoping in time I will start to pick up more from casually spoken Turkish.

    I've just realised that there's quite a few Turkish people on DeviantArt.
    I'm surprised I didn't notice that before considering how many accounts I have there.
    Are you a member of the TurkSanat group?
    Actually I had not known of that group before on DA until you mentioned it. Nor did I know that many Turks were on DA. Ill see if I can find out about that group though, thanks HWB.

    You probably will learn a bit more than casually spoken Turkish.
    Personally, I think the best way to learn it is to engage with people who do speak Turkish.
    My school used to send the students who study German A level to Germany for work experience. Every time they went, they learnt a lot more German than they would if they stayed studying in England because in a way they'd be 'forced' to learn.

    Everyone there seems to write Turkish so it could be quite good for learning some art related words...
    Plus you might see some of my art there?
