Turkish Survival Course

A crash course for greetings, idioms, polite expressions, question words and more!


Our Survival Turkish lessons give you a crash course in basic Turkish. If you're just visiting Turkey, you've never studied Turkish before, or if you're wanting to make sure you have a good foundation for our Beginner course, than this is the right place for you.

Because it's designed as an introduction to the language, this course feels really different than the rest of our three language programs. We take a more straightforward approach by letting you listen to some Turkish dialogues, then providing the English to Turkish translations, some vocabulary lists, and a few notes.

While we DEFINITELY don't like this method for long term language learning, we've found that that it's actually the best approach for learning your first 50 "power phrases". With this foundation, you'll have the perfect launching pad for beginning your language learning journey.


  • The ability to say basic words and phrases
  • The motivation to start speaking while traveling through Turkey
  • The confidence to start having simple conversations with local Turks
  • The knowledge to understand and use almost 50 power phrases
  • The experience to easily begin our Beginner's Turkish course


Rather than force you to purchase 4 separate courses, we've bundled all of our courses together into a single, coherent program (because who likes to pay extra fees?).
