      @Reşat Ören Hello Reşat, Hello everyone! I came here in Turkey a week ago with my son and wife. My son already have a school. Now I'm trying to learn Turkish language and those videos are very helpful to me. Some things of Turkish language, example structure of sentences are mostly like Mongolian language. Thanks for videos and I hope on we will talk to each other by Turkish.

    Before I went to Turkey I took some time to learn simple phrases like good morning, thank you very much, good night, etc . I did it through internet with Turkish audio so I could learn how to pronounce the words correctly. I memorized some 30 simple sentences and words. When I reached Turkey I realized how good it was that I did that. In our group of tourists I became the official “translator”. Besides, I was amazed to see how Turkish people were glad and friendlier when I addressed them in their language. I loved that country and hope to take time to really learn more, as I plan to go back there.

    Kolay Gelsin is my favorite expression in Turkish... just the fact that it does not have a translation since it is something cultural that does not occur in almost any other place is wonderful. I love this language, i find thit so polite and thoughtful most of the time. I love it.


    Muchas gracias por este video! Excelente para los que queremos saber más del idioma Turco. A mi me encanta, he estado tratando de aprender de forma empírica, he usado la aplicación Duolingo y he aprendido muchísimo, además de mirar todo as la series turcas que pueden existir 😂.
    Escucho muchas canciones en turco también, para acostumbrar mi oído al idioma. Puedo decir que entiendo un 70% de una conversación en turco y puedo decir algunas oraciones cortas. Pero es cierto este idioma es completamente diferente al español o al inglés, se siente como si estuviéramos hablando al revés !🤭 Me encanta porque se relaciona tanto a su cultura que te obliga a aprender no solo el idioma sino su historia, cultura y religión ! 🥰
    Very interesting video, again thxs a lot!

    Turkish is such a lyrical sounding language. It's beautiful! Something I think I've figured out from watching a Turkish vet here on KZclip, is that you often use the word "yes" the way we use "ok" in English. I was confused at first because I learned that "yes" is "evet", and "ok" is "tamam", but this vet very frequently says "evet" in a place where we'd say something like "Okay.... let's do this." It's a really interesting language, but hard to learn!

      Yes we do use it, especially younger generations (mostly the people who know English more or the people who are more active in social media platforms) say "okay/yes/no" instead of "tamam/evet/hayır" more while they're talking to their own friend groups but we do not say it to someone we don't know much and the people we're not close to be.

    ‘Kolay gelsin’ doesn’t sound weird to me at all as a native Arabic speaker, we have the phrase ‘يعطيك العافية' that literally translates to ‘May God give you strength (to do the job)’ and we use it in the same exact way as you mentioned. In fact, even ‘Eline sağlık’ exists in the Arabic culture too. It’s amazing that most of these expressions are common in both Arabic & Turkish. Teşekkürler 🙏🏻

      I am not suprised. Also when we say Europe, mostly we refer west of Hungary or west of balkans...Balkans was Turks lost home, Turkish Republic's founding fathers are mostly Balkan originated and almost half of Turkish population. Balkans are not so different from Anatolia for us. Many people have last name with Balkanian roots such as Tunali (from Danube), Burgazli, Kirlikova..etc Tuna is also very popular Turkish name so actually we share more with Balkans than middle east.

    Sehat means in Arabic health, I believe it was a word that came from that. Thank you for your expectations! Turkish language and culture have lots of words, cultures, and traditions in it as the result of migration and absorbing the surrounding civilization. In the language, one can hear Farsi, Arabic, Greek, and Armenian. In the culture, it is not only Turkic but Iranian, Mongolian, Armenian, Georgian, Greek, Arab, and other small groups like Assyrian and others. I believe that is why many people and cultures can relate to it. It was wonderful to study it and live there for a while. It felt like home! 🥰

    Huge part of Balkan, including Srrbia was under Ottoman umpire for 500 years in Serbia a lot of words are either still same or we just changed one letter, but still you can recognize words. Also there is many things very similar in Turkish and Serbian grammar. What you are saying as expressions even Serbian language has, like after cutting hair, or doing bath (not anymore because its not a big deal like before taking bath once per week), but we still say after making some big hair changes, or buying more expensive clothes 'in health to wear', and when someone make you food, or even coffee that you really wanted we would say 'your hands to become golden'. Old sayings are hard to translate to another language unless there is a similar saying in that language, but most of them are very traditionally and slowly disappearing unless you are traditional so you like to use them on your kids. Also in Serbia we made that sound TZ for no and we usually add YOK, to confirm twice like NO NO NO! Im not even sure if it's rude or not, but defiantly not something you can write, especially work YOK (jok) that is now slang as Turkish word.

    Thank you for your videos, teaching Turkish! When airing the TV-series "Paramparc,a" and "Anne" on Swedish television, "kolay gelsin" was translated into "god arbetslust" in Swedish. We don't use that phrase in Swedish, though, but it makes sense to me, but just like you, I can't find a proper English way of saying it. What about "ne var ya"?

    We use "vala" in Serbian too, more or less with the same meaning. We took it from you guys, of course, with many other words :) When you told about the "rude" reply to Kolay gelsin, I thought of a similar meaning of a different expression in Serbian, namely - someone says to me, oh, you have such a nice brother! I reply, impliying that my brother is not as nice as he seems: "If it's so, then take him home!" Of course, only among friends and close aquaintances. We also have the ts,ts,ts sound for no :) but it also can mean dissaproval. Your videos are very interesting, you explain well, I subscribed not long ago. (I'm learning Turkish just because I like it, but it's pretty difficult for me).

    Thank you for sharing and teaching us accurately Turkish language. Mostly we want to learn Turkish because of our favorite Turkish drama series. Specially me I'm hooked on EMANET series I fell in love with the main leads and it wasn't translated all in English just a fragments. Though, there we're kind enough to sacrifice their time to give us English translations for the entire episodes Monday to Friday but sometimes due to their busy schedules the won't able to.

    Additionally, we Turkish people use "yoo" for saying "no". It actually comes from the word "yok" which means "doesn't exist". But we somehow use it to express rejection, refusal, any sort of negation.

    So cool. I wish every language I wanted to study had someone like you to make videos and explain things. Don't stop. Also, I can see how a lot of expressions and grammatical elements in Russian were influenced by Turkic languages (maybe from all of the Turkic republics?) Unlike other Slavic languages, Russian doesn't use "to be" or "to have". It uses a construction like Turkish. Plus, the 'yama ya' is a lot like the Russian ё-моё (yomayo). Russians also have an expression for when you get out of the shower or sauna: с лёгким паром! (s lokim param - with light steam). LOL. Makes no sense to an English speaker, but it's a nice, polite thing to say.
    Sucking your teeth for "no" is the same in Egypt. To an English speaker, it sounds kind of rude (especially if you're a teacher and a student does it. haha), but you get used to it.
    Again, these videos are awesome!

    I have quite a reasonable knowledge of Turkish, I guess B2 and I particularly love your explanation of "kolay gelsin". Some Turkish friends of mine living in the Netherlands who are good at Dutch, kind of "miss"the expression "kolay gelsin". A Turkish guy often feels like saying the Dutch word for "good luck" )(succes in Dutch ) two his neighbout who is washing the car or cutting the lawn but this is only used when he has a complicated job. A conversation between two Dutch neighbours would be something like
    - Good morning Piet, are you gardening? (sounds stupid as the other sees he is actually gardening but is just to show interest)
    - Yes as you see Jan, such things have to be done as you know
    Only when Piet is in a bad mood or feels like joking he will answer to the gardening question sarcastically : No, I am making bread, okay??!! (i.e. don't use unnecessary questions)
    But the good luck only will appear for a more complex job. Let 's say the lawn machine doesn't work well and he asks some oil from his neigbour, the neigbour will give it to him and say "succes!"

    We actually have a similar saying for "kolay gelsin" in Romanian. We say "spor la treabă". For example, if my mother says she has a lot of work to do and I say "spor la treabă", I wish her to have enough energy to complete her work efficiently.
    Same goes for "eline sağlık". We say "Dumnezeu să-ți binecuvânteze mâinile" which translates into "may God bless your hands".

    For the expression „ellerine Saglik“: if someone bought the food for you, you can say „kesene Bereket“ it means something like „i hope u will get more than u give“ or „your wallet may become richer“
    And for everyone commenting that some words are from another language, u know most languages have the same origin and thats why they mostly the same but written different OR have a different meaning so instead of saying „its originally XXXX“ just say „in my language its the same or we have s similar word (with another meaning)

    “Külah” used to be a hat in Ottoman time. I mean a type of hat called külah. “Sen onu benim külahima anlat” is obviously “You tell this to my hat”
    I’m sure you must have heard “Külahlari degisiriz” before which is used for warning someone who is naughty.

    a different English expression… I like your language and am slightly familiar with it and smiled as I recognised a few expressions
    “ health to your hands”. is nice and understandable. The Sound. “tut” is also a cultural thing in Scotland where I grew up…
    it is a sound of disapproval or you might use it to comment with a negative vibe, something not even worthy of expressing the word “ no”.
