Teaching turkish as a foreign language

  2. 2.  Turkish is a member of the Altaic-languages family, which includes Mongolian, Korean and Manchu-Tungus, spoken in Siberia and Manchuria. Turkish and other languages in this family add various suffixes to the end of words in order to create new words or to use a word in a sentence. So an idea that needs many words to be expressed in other languages can be expressed in Turkish by just one word. For example, the English sentence "You will be able to come" is expressed by the single word "Gelebileceksin" in Turkish.
