Most high school or regular Turkish courses start by teaching you dull grammar rules and complex language notions. There has to be a better way! We, at Mondly - the language app loved by millions of people worldwide, take an opposite approach. Our language experts care deeply about your ability to have real conversations in Turkish as fast as possible. That's why, rather than bombarding you with complex notions in the beginning of your course, we start by involving you in a real conversation. Through this approach, you will be able to have your first Turkish conversation after only 5 minutes of using our app. Encouraging, right?
Our linguists have also identified one of the major secrets of how to speak Turkish: listening to native speakers in a natural setting. Because our brain is wired to absorb the information we hear, our experts made listening an essential part of learning Turkish. As a result, during all our lessons you will hear natives speak in Turkish clearly, correctly and in context. This way, you will pick up the natural Turkish pronunciation of core words effortlessly.
The most important part of learning Turkish is getting a chance to practice what you learned by speaking the language. Otherwise, it’s all lost, like most of what we’ve learned in school. That’s exactly why our language experts have included Turkish speaking exercises in every lesson. No need to find a Turkish friend to help you rehearse. No need to go to a Turkish speaking country. How can this be possible? We have created a high-tech computer program you can use to have a smart conversation with (really!). We call it the Mondly Chatbot. Sit back and it engages in a conversation with you using a friendly, native Turkish voice. Don’t be shy: respond to its questions or even ask it one. Like magic, it will understand what you are saying and respond like a regular person would. No wonder millions of people around the world have already tried our Chatbot to learn how to speak Turkish.
The great minds of our time consider Virtual Reality (VR) to be the future of technology. Acknowledging the tremendous potential of this technology, we worked with our world class linguists to shape the future of language learning through Virtual Reality.

Turkish is part of the Altaic language family, one of the world’s largest language families alongside Chinese, Russian and Mongolian. There is also a Turkish language group that includes countries in Eurasia, Siberia, Eastern Europe and the Balkans that were part of the former Soviet Union or China. Some of these languages are Kazakh spoken in Uzbekistan, Turkmen spoken in Turkmenistan, Azeri spoken in Azerbaijan or Kyrgyz spoken in Kyrgyzstan. So, by knowing any of these languages you will have an easier time learning Turkish.
It’s also important to say that Turkish is not only spoken in Turkey. Turkish people have emigrated all around the world and you’ll find someone to speak Turkish with in some of the world’s biggest countries. For example, there are over 2,7 million Turks in Germany, about half a million in France, about 400000 in the Netherlands, over 250000 in the United States and over 100000 in Saudi Arabia.
Turkish is the 20th most spoken language worldwide, so you'll definitely have a lot to gain by learning conversational Turkish. For example, you'll be able to interact with people anytime you visit Turkey.
Wherever you plan to travel to Turkey, speaking Turkish will enhance your experience significantly. You will be able to experience Turkish speaking countries like a native and have an authentic experience in the process.
Being able to speak Turkish increases your employability significantly and makes you stand out from the crowd. This means that you will have better chances of getting a well paid job in the first place, better chances of getting promoted or getting a better job in a Turkish speaking country.
Studies indicate that being bilingual or a polyglot increase the grey matter in your brain. This means that speaking Turkish makes you smarter than you currently are. So, what are you waiting for?
