Okay, that actually makes things much easier to remember. Thank you!

Also omg, I spent some of this morning trying to catch up to you because your weekly XP was higher than mine. (You were at 150 and I was only at 60-something so I did a bunch and got up to 153)

Shutup wine is great, I love that. The pasta cake thing tripped me up at first until I realized that pasta = pastry. I'm also thinking Portuguese orange (portakal sounds a bit like Portugal?)

It was really nostalgic for me to do this so I went through a bunch. xD Also I was talking about your exp in general, not just for Turkish. So much French and German! (which I've actually taken courses for!)

And makarna is easy to remember if you think about 'macaroni' which is pretty much synonymous to pasta for some peoplle. :P I never thought about the pasta-pastry connection before, it definitely makes sense!

Also, Aslan. Narnia!!

I actually haven't been doing German lately. That's left over from a few years ago. I think my current level of German is beyond what Duolingo can teach me. I might just finish the course for completion's sake, though!

Macaroni. That's a really good memory aid.

Ah, I see. Did you take German for fun by the way? It's a very challenging language but I do love it. I used to take German lessons because I had previously planned to study in Germany for uni. But that's changed so I didn't study further after B1.

And now my level is at A2 because I've forgotten everything. Duolingo can be a great app for reviewing though, which is what I'm trying to do. ^^

Also, drandahl brauchte ein paar Humanities Credits in der Universität. Er sagte, "Ich denke, dass ich Deutsch nehmen werde" und ich antwortete, "DANN WERDE ICH MIT DIR AUCH NEHMEN."

Und das ist die ganze Geschichte.

Aber jetzt sind wir in der türkischen Thread, and so I will switch back to English.

I'm still doing this! I just haven't really thought of anything to say since I've been a bit preoccupied. My only real tricks insofar have been to do the Makarna->Macaroni connection as well, and also a weird şarap->syrup->wine connection.

I've been working on the accusative form, and I have to say that I like it a lot. It's very intuitive and easy to follow. Still familiarizing with the vocal harmony, though.

Oh, and it blew my mind when I realized you can omit the subject noun and infer it from the conjugation of the verb. Makes sense, but I did not expect that.

Bumping this thread with a few memrise courses that Luxaria and I have been using for studying vocab.

Turkish - Just a general mishmash of vocab, loosely categorized

Hacking Turkish 1 - Similar to the above.

Duolingo Turkish Supplement Companion - Specifically vocab from Duolingo in the order presented in Duolingo. The guy updates this as he studies, so it's not yet complete.
