Learning Turkish

October 25, 2020

This week, I started learning Turkish. My girlfriend is Turkish and much of her family doesn’t speak English, so it will be a practical skill to develop.

I didn’t grow up around people speaking Turkish and I never took Turkish at school, so it’s obvious that I will have to practice. Even with substantial effort, it will take time to master the language.

Another skill I didn’t learn at school is task management. Now, I went to some pretty fancy schools, but task management wasn’t on the curriculum. My guess is that it wasn’t on your curriculum, either.

Why, then, would you expect to naturally be good at it? If you’ve never studied task management before, you’re in the same situation as I am with respect to speaking Turkish: you need practice.

Treat it as such.
