(Ah,seen your other thread. Excellent. Have read a lot professionally on how Turkish speaking children are generally leaps and bounds ahead when acquiring other languages as complex Turkish grammar gives them such a fantastic start.)
I would love to see some of that material that shows benefits of learning Turkish - DH is not entirely happy that I talk to DD in Turkish. It did give him the incentive to learn a couple of words in Turkish, though. He says things like, "Nerede anne?". Until DD started understanding Turkish, his enthusiasm in the subject was woefully lacking
You are living in Van, right? I've never been east of Ankara. I'm the proverbial Western city Turk, I'm afraid. How is it working out for you?
Not in Van anymore.
There is stacks of stuff on how Turkish kids are so advanced because of complex grammatical structure of the language.Please keep speaking it-one of the best most positive things you can do for you child in so many ways.
Just read through "Turkish language" in Wikipedia and realized that I would HATE to learn it as a foreign language! Reading your previous post, I was thinking to myself "What 'complex structure'? It is all so simple."
Googling has so far just pointed at Turkish (immigrant) children having a hard time integrating in their host countries. Any chance you could remember the name of a book on advantages of learning Turkish early? I would really appreciate it.
