In Turkish there are two kinds of verbs:
1. Transitive verbs: take an object (anla -understand, sev -love, bul -find, yap -make...)
2. Intransitive verbs: take no object (gül -laugh, uyu -sleep, öl -die...)
The infinitive is the mood of the verb without any conjugation. In order to make a the Turkish infinitive, the suffix -mak or -mek is added to the verb root according to the last vowel of the verb root.
There are 4 main tenses in the Turkish language:
Verbs are conjugated according to suffixes. This makes the conjugation different than English or other Roman and Latin languages.
The different suffixes are:
Causative verbs are verbs that explain how a person or a thing makes something happen (verbs with an obligated indirect object like to make something, to get something,...). In Turkish, a causative verb is formed by adding a specific suffix to the verb.
The passive voice is used to emphasize the action and the object of a sentence. The passive voice is formed by adding specific suffixes. The passive suffixes are: ''-n, -in, -il''
In English, the words myself, oneself,... are used in combination with reflexive verbs. In Turkish, the suffix -(i)n shows that the subject and the object are the same in a sentence. The reflexive mood is only used with certain verbs.
The reciprocal verb gives a meaning of an action that is done together with another person. In English one would say `one another`. In Turkish, the suffix -(i)ş is used to provide this meaning. The reciprocal mood can only be used with certain verbs.

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.

Greetings my name is Hubeyb KÖSE. I spent 10 years of my childhood in Russia, I went to primary school in Russian National Education. I studied... high school and university in Turkey. I am a graduate of Bant Abant İzzet Baysal University Turkish Language Teaching (2013). I am 28. I have a certificate for teaching Turkish to foreigners from Marmara University. I speak intermediate Russian, French, and English. I am still teaching Turkish to foreign children and foreign adults at a private Russian school in Istanbul. The levels I teach: A1 A2 B1 B2 C1 I teach the lessons through audio and video sources. My priority in classes is to be able to express themselves in a short time, even if it is wrong. The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (see CEFR), which is now accepted all over the world, says this. Instead of long and boring grammar lessons, I am primarily teaching communicative language acquisition and then teaching grammar. Resources I have used: -Yunus Emre Institute Seven climates (Main Source) -Istanbul book - Yunus Emre Enstitüsü I learn Turkish with pictures. and resources in the learner's language, if necessary.
