Here is where I am in my study of written Turkish this week!
I’m finding it so difficult to focus on my grammar and vocab study, that I’m re-starting the reading of the 2nd Harry Potter book (with a word of concern for the current controversy, which does not negate the good the author did in raising the issue of C-PTSD using the characters of Harry and Neville…):
restarting: page 1
So, it turns out that reading something fun can be far more useful for learning a language than slogging through the grammar point and vocabulary words for the day. More on my continuing striving with Turkish next week, friends:

Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:
1.) Search for two different resources to translate the word “jolted” into Turkish.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how you like each of the resources you found, perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,
4.) Write a blog post or tweet that uses a Turkish word, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
