Build a Memory Palace to Learn Essential Turkish

Unlock your spatial memory to master Turkish using the creative techniques of medieval monks and scholars

This course in essential Turkish functions covers all the basics to get started speaking and writing Turkish. As an introductory course, it assumes no prior knowledge of Turkish. You will be guided through all the lessons to first understand the material before then storing the new language in your memory through a memory palace.

Topics covered range from numbers and time, through to describing things. You will not only learn a number of useful phrases and expression, but you will also learn how Turkish works as a language. Turkish has a markedly different structure to English and other Indo-European languages. It relies on a number of grammatical suffixes to mark features like person, number, case, and tense. All of this will be explained in detail within the context of the survival language presented in this course.

This course assumes you have already completed our full course in Memory. Once you have gone through the lessons in Turkish, you will be guided step-by-step through how to store all of the material in a memory palace so that you can retain, access, and use the content long-term. 3D animations will be used to demonstrate how a memory palace might look for this course, but you will be free to use your own spaces and imagination.

PDF handouts of all content as well as audio recording of all examples in Turkish are available to download as part of the program.
