The Turkish numbers are indicated below. The Turkish cardinal numbers express How many? They're also known as counting numbers. Because they demonstrate quantity.
We’ll go over the cardinal numbers from zero to twenty and all the key numbers up to one thousand, then examine how ordinal numbers work in Turkish when it comes to the appropriate suffixes.
Cardinal numbers are known as the counting numbers in the Turkish language. There are 10 digits in the Turkish language.
Cardinal numbers are followed by singular nouns. (beş ağaç - five trees)
In Turkish, we always say the tens digit first, then the ones digit.
Some examples: 48: kırk sekiz ( tens digit first; ones digit second. )
on-bir = on bir
yirmi-üç = yirmi üç
otuz-dört = otuz dört
kırk-altı = kırk altı
elli-dokuz = elli dokuz
altmış-beş = altmış beş
yetmiş-bir = yetmiş bir
seksen-iki = seksen iki
doksan-yedi = doksan yedi

|300||üç yüz||three hundred|
|400||dört yüz||four hundred|
|500||beş yüz||five hundred|
|600||altı yüz||six hundred|
|700||yedi yüz||seven hundred|
|800||sekiz yüz||eight hundred|
|900||dokuz yüz||nine hundred|
Examples written in words
888 = sekiz yüz + seksen + sekiz = sekiz yüz seksen sekiz
|123||yüz yirmi üç||one hundred twenty three|
|265||iki yüz altmış beş||two hundred sixty five|
|348||üç yüz kırk sekiz||three hundred fourty eight|

|790||yedi yüz doksan||seven hundred ninety|
|888||sekiz yüz seksen sekiz||eight hundred eighty eight|
|911||dokuz yüz on bir||nine hundred eleven|
Singular, one, once (bir, kere, defa)
|bir, kere, defa||one, once|

|ev||house (or) the house|
|peynir||cheese (or) the cheese|
|üç çocuk||(the) three children|
|sekiz elma||(the) eight apples|
There are two common words for ‘one half’
Yarım is used when no other number is mentioned in the expression.
|yarım kilo||½ kilogram|
|beş yüz gram||500 grams|
|yarım kilometre||½ kilometer|
|beş yüz metre||500 metres|
|yarım saat||½ hour|
|otuz dakika||30 minutes|
Buçuk is used with numerals.
|bir buçuk saat||1½ hours|
|on buçuk kilometre||10½ kilometres|

Like the cardinal numbers, the ‘counting words’ kaç ‘how much?’ ‘how many?’ çok ‘much,’ ‘many,’ and az ‘few, ‘a little" are followed by singular nouns.
|Kaç lira?||How many liras?|
|Kaç dolar?||How many Euro?|
|Kaç kuruş?||How many kuruş?|
|Kaç kaşık şeker?||How many spoons of sugar?|
|Kaç para?||How much money?|

|çok, az||much, many, few, little|
|az ev||few houses|
|çok ev||many houses|
|çok şeker||much sugar|
|çok az para||very little money|
|biraz şeker||a little sugar|
|çok limon||lots of lemons|
|az çok||more or less|
These two ‘counting words’ are to be distunguished from each other:
parça ‘piece’ (one part, section, segment etc., of a whole);
tane ‘piece’ (one man, one house)
Tane may be used after the cardinal numbers.
|Kaç tane?||How many?|
|Kaç parça ekmek?||How many pieces of bread? (for ‘slice’ use dilim.)|
|Kaç tane ekmek?||How many ‘breads?’ how many loaves of bread?|
|Kaç ev ?||How many houses?|
|Kaç tane ev?||How many houses?|
|Beş ev||five houses|
|Beş tane ev||five houses|
|Beş tane||five (of whatever is being counted)|

Hello from Turkey,
I am native Turkish speaker from the south of Turkey. I graduated from departmant of science teacher at Cukurova University. Teaching is significant and enjoyable for me because I like to learn new things with right sources so I care to teach. When I was student I worked at study center course and I teached english to children. and I teached at homes.
I like to learn new cultures, languages, music... I love to nature so I love to taking natural photographs. This is my hobby.
In my opinion teaching mustn't be boring and serious. We should have fun when we teach so I am waiting you for learn efficient and enjoyable.
Hi, My name is Ayşegül. I have graduated from Hacettepe University the department of English Language Teaching. I'm an English teacher in a private institution now. I can teach both English and Turkish.
The first and foremost I want to start with one of my favourite quotation from Richard Henry Dana(!) (I'm not sure whether this quotation belong to him or not, but I liked it. :) “He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.” First of all we as a teacher must improve ourselves about everything such as cultural knowledge, technology, best seller book, new novel etc. We should keep up with the time and try to understand our students.
Then we should know students’ interests, needs, backgrounds and their level of English / Turkish. If we know the aforementioned things, it would be more easy for us to decide what kind of materials we can use to attract their attention. Also, one of the key point is that we should motivate the students to learn. As a teacher we should teach our students why they learn the language/grammar/vocabulary etc. rather than just memorization. Regarding teaching method, we can use student centered methods. We should use examples from the real life and they can broaden students’ knowledge. Also using examples from the real life, help students to internalize the examples. I strongly believe that we should make our students acquire the language from all aspects including reading, listening, writing and speaking.
All in all, as a teacher we have lots of things to do. One of the most important responsibilities of us is to help students to understand that they have the enough power and capacity to learn a language if they are decided enough.
Hello Turkish Learners!
I am a professional Turkish Teacher and a translator with a master degree.I have visited so many countries to research cultures and Turkish Dialects.
Since I was a child, my dream was to travel to Asia and learn all the other Turkish Languages such as Kyrgyz Turkish, Kazak Turkish, Tatar Turkish, Tuva Turkish) as well as to research the similarities and differences between Modern Turkish and other Turkish languages.
In the past, I worked as a lecturer in the School of Foreign Languages of Turkish Education at Kyrgyzstan Turkey Manas University for 3 years. During my appointment, I have taught all levels of Modern Turkish to the students who are from different nationalities such as Americans, Russians, English, German, Kazaks, Kyrgyz, Tatars, Mongol, Tuvas, Uighur Turk. I am also very fluent in Kyrgyz Turkish and Kazak Turkish.
Currently, I am living in Turkey.I believe that with my experiences and love for languages, I can surely help you to speak up. As a patient and concise teacher, I: - develop and implement individual lesson plans for structured and conversational sessions. - use a variety of written and audio materials, primarily Elementary Turkish in 2 Volumes by Kurtuluş Öztopçu.- assign homework and provide regular feedback to students. - clarify complex grammar questions through examples from everyday conversations-make the language learning process less theoretical and more practical. Let me know your motivations and needs, and I will prepare an individual lesson plan for you.Just dream,you can learn language easily!Aysegul
