    Poor book

    This book provides limited gramatical information (the necessary basis for learning any language).

    The grammar is summarised, very briefly on two pages at the back of the book. Limited explanations are given for the grammar. Verb endings are not listed, but just examples, with no infinitive of the verb given, thus it is impossible to tell what is the stem and what is in fact the verb ending.

    Not only that, but the verb that is used (gitmet, to go) is an irregular verb, and yet this is not explained. I only found the correct verb endings by Googling the pronoun and the verb, finding out what that meant, and then getting the infinitive from there, thus being able to work out the verb ending.

    Whilst there does appear to be a good quantity of vocabulary for a book of this size, I was not taught to learn language by learning just vocabularly; we also had the grammar drummed in to us at school.

    There are some fantastic free websites on the internet which detail, simply, Turkish grammar, and which are much more useful than this book will ever be.
