Holiday Turkey: Useful words and phrases!

For those who are going on holiday to Turkey We have gathered a number of useful words and phrases.

About the Turkish language

With a lot of courage and a little perseverance, you will be able to say a few words and phrases in Turkish, during your holiday in Turkey. They are not obvious because the letters of the Turkish alphabet are very different from the Latin alphabet. In Turkey, the alphabet has 29 letters. If you are already in Turkey, you may find someone willing to say words once. That way you immediately contact your Turkish fellow holidaymaker or host. Turks are generally very friendly and welcoming. And they will appreciate that you are struggling!

But also how you can imagine yourself and how you can thank the other. What is not to be missed is the farewell, because of course you don’t want to pay too much.
