The Actress “Chakameh Chaman Mah” living and working at GEM in Istanbul
A few words of Turkish is often met with a smile and pretty soon an invite for coffee. Turks take great pride in their country and language. Learning simple phrases, such as hello, goodbye and thank you, can help you build a connection with locals, smooth interactions, and help drive down the price when bargaining at the Grand Bazaar. Teşekkür ederim (thank you), selam (hello), and İyi günler (goodbye or have a nice day), are all good starting points for connecting with locals in conversation.
