Turkish Short Stories for Beginners is the first book of the series. It is divided into 6 chapters, which include stories based on real-life situations such as celebrating a birthday party, preparing breakfast, going shopping and eating at a restaurant to help you understand and learn more Turkish vocabulary and phrases. In order to test and consolidate readers’ understanding, grammar and vocabulary skills, we have included comprehension, grammar and vocabulary quizzes at the end of each story.
Each level of reader has a limited number of headwords as demonstrated on the table on the back cover.
