This week in Turkish class we learned a lot of verbs for daily activities, and we learned how to use those verbs in the first person simple present. Useful stuff, right? If you want to see what we’ve been working on, you can visit the Turkish blog at https://sites.google.com/site/buildturkish/home.
Next week is Spring Break, and we will also take the week after Spring Break off, so the next Turkish class will be on April 3rd.
Iyi Ilkbahar Tatili, herkese!

Sawaddee kha everyone,
Our lesson 4 this week is the continued lesson from last time. We talked about how to say something in simple sentences. This week we talked about the verb /len/ ‘to play’ and /bpai/ ‘to go’. We also played a word game, so that everyone could get more practice.
We will upload more vocabulary on our website . Feel free to check it out at
See you next week! แล้วเจอกันค่ะ /laew jer gun kha/
Hi all, in our last lesson we had 2 new students. It’s nice to have all 4 motivated students. We talked about how to form simple sentences in Thai, starting with the verb /gin/ ‘to eat’ such as
/chan chaawp gin khao phad/ = I like to eat fried rice.
The students showed their interest in food terms, so we talked more about different kinds of food and ingredients.
We then talked about adding ‘not’ into the sentence
/chan mai chaawp gin khao phad/ = I don’t like to eat friend rice.
I will post a separate handout of the whole list of food terms with an appropriate tone mark.

2. Then we practiced pronouncing numbers 0-20, following it up with this number “rap” video:
3. Lastly, we began practicing spelling our names, addresses, and giving telephone numbers to a receptionist:
Personne A : D’accord (Madame/Monsieur), comment est-ce que vous épelez votre nom ?
Personne B : _______________________________
Personne A : Merci. Et votre adresse ?
Personne B : C’est…….
Personne A : Merci. Et votre numéro de téléphone ?
Personne B : Ok, c’est …………
Next week we’ll work on introductions/greetings, expressing food interests/ordering, and then spend some time on some reading/pronunciation practice with either songs or basic poetry.
A la prochaine! See you next time!
