Turkish Vocabulary – Drinks and Foods

How To Learn These Words

Welcome to another Turkish vocabulary lesson. In this short vocabulary lecture, we will learn about Turkish Drink and Foods you can use in your written and spoken sentences. In order to learn these words, I would suggest that you watch this video more than once and imitate the words the way I pronounce them.

While most of my vocabulary lessons also have sentence examples using the words, this lesson doesn’t have it. Instead, I have provided a free dialogue where a customer goes to a grocer to purchase certain things. You can follow the video or listen to the video and follow along the new vocabulary below, the choice is yours.

If you’re an Unlimited member, there are even more exercises you can do to further improve your understanding of these new words. More information can be found at the “Homework Time” section below.
