Turkish language courses at Echo

Turkish is spoken by 70 million people in Turkey and by more than 15 million people around the world.

Spoken Turkish in the Ottoman Empire was an altered version of the Arab alphabet. In 1928, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, in his efforts to modernize Turkey, forbade the Arab alphabet, and replaced it with a modified version of the Latin one.

One of the characteristics of this language is the harmony of vowels, namely if the first vowel is open, the second, or the following ones will also be vowels.

Turkish, as Finnish, is an agglutinating language. It is known for the abundance of suffixes, and the limited presence of prefixes.
