In addition to regular studying, I’ll be passively experiencing Türkçe by listening to some pöpüler müsik Türkçe.

A great place to listen for free is on a free online Türkçe radio station, PowerTürk.

They also have a Top 40 list of popular pop in Turkish. So search them up on YouTube*!

*An interesting note is that Turkey actually banned YouTube from 2008-2010 due to insulting materials directed at Turkey. Just last October, Turkey lifted the ban. In Turkey, it is illegal to “commit crimes against Ataürk“. Ataürk is the founding father of modern Turkey, and any insults directed at the country is considered “commit crimes against Ataürk”.
