Hello friends, welcome back! How are you? Hello everyone! Welcome to the 3rd Episode of the Turkish Speaking Podcast! In today’s podcast, we will learn how to talk about “Our City and Occupation”. We will learn how to explain to our friends, our city and occupation in a simple way. Starting with this podcast, we will make our dialogues in three levels. The first dialogue will be “Easy”, second “Intermediate” and the last dialogue will be “Advanced”. If your Turkish is still weak, please watch and finish the video course “Speaking Turkish in 30 Days” before this podcast series and later continue this podcast. Like always before we start; you can download all these dialogues as a PDF file and study the grammar used here from the Turkishaholic’s Grammar Bank section! Let’s start! Example Dialogue 1 – Easy Mert, where are you from? I’m from İzmir. Ok, what kind of a city is İzmir? İzmir is a nice city. İzmir has the Aegean Sea, it’s deep blue and has a beautiful beach. How nice! Where do you live now? Now I’m living in İstanbul. What do you do in İstanbul? What’s your occupation? I work at a company in İstanbul. I’m an office worker. What do you do Merve? I’m a school teacher in İstanbul. I teach English. Example Dialogue 2 – Intermediate Nurtaç, I have a question for you. What kind of a city is Antalya? Antalya is a touristic city. It has a nice beach and scenery. When did you last visit Antalya? I last visited Antalya 6 years ago. I went on a holiday with my family. Is that so? How nice! Zach, how’s your new job? What do you do there? Could you tell me? I’m an actor. We make videos to teach foreigners English. It sounds like a fun job! Shall we make a video together? Sure! I’ll get my camera, we can shoot a video together! Example Dialogue 3 – Advanced Hello Aslı, are you available? I need to consult you with something. Of course, Can, how can I help you? What did you want to ask? It’s the first time I’m working as a Specialist in a company, what do I actually need to do? A specialist does the company’s secretarial work and reporting. Really? It’s not as hard as I thought. Where did you work as a Specialist before? Before this company, I worked at a company in Ankara as a specialist. Ok, what kind of a city is Ankara? My sister will move there this summer, can you tell me a little? Ankara is Turkey’s capital. It’s a quiet city and has lots of super malls. Hmm, does it have natural scenery? I don’t really like super malls that much. Of course, it has some natural scenery but unfortunately, it’s not an İzmir or İstanbul.
