We are adding one language a month at LingQ. The winner last month was Turkish. I am definitely going to get to that language. Now we just need some Turkish content. I hope our members come through.
You can vote for the next language. Just have a look under Questions at our Facebook page. Right now it looks like a close race between Farsi, Finnish, Cantonese, Modern Greek and Hebrew. There are also a few dark horses. Meanwhile enjoy Turkish.

Did you know that Turkish is spoken by an estimated 80 million people worldwide? It is an agglutinative language and has a word order similar to Korean and Japanese, but it also has noun cases like Russian and Czech.
Turkish underwent some significant changes in the early 1900s, including a change in the writing system, moving from an Arabic-based script to a Latin-based script.
