- FSI unit 7
- Write a story using stuff I learned!
I’m finding the FSI courses more and more helpful. Even though I don’t know the grammatical rules that some of these sentences, I can nevertheless pull out ideas because I’ve memorized these sentences.
For example, I can easily tell someone where my school is:
Doğru gildiniz, sağ tarafta, köse başinda iyi bir okul var. (Straight ahead, around the corner on the right, there is a good school).
I can also create my own little story.
WARNING: there may be mistakes in my Turkish 😀 Update: Everything is now fixed, thanks to the nice people on LiveMocha!

No. I don’t speak Turkish very well. Please repeat.Man: Will you give me some money?Woman: How much liras?Man: 100 liras please.Woman: If wonder if there’s a police station around here?Man: Good bye…
I’m gonna try to create more of these stories everyday. It’s a great practice!
