Common Turkish Words and Phrases for Tourists

Will you struggle if you do not know Turkish?

Not all all. English is taught in schools so most Turks have a basic knowledge. If you intend to visit off the beaten track areas, download an app or carry a small phrase book that you can refer to if needed. In tourist and expats areas like the coastal resorts on the Mediterranean and Aegean coast, English is widely spoken and on some occasions, the Turks can imitate a English accent perfectly!
