    Some simple phrases never hurt anyone, did they?

    Who knows I might need them one day.

    Is Turkish more like from the European family of languages, as opposed to Arabic being a Semitic language?

    No, Turkish is not a European language. Arabic is in the Indo-European language family. Turkish is in the Ural-Altaic language family. Considering this, you can find more similarities between Arabic and English rather than Turkish

    What about the alphabets? You seem to use some different ones than in English, like ç It looks like C but what´s that thing under of it?

    Yes there are different letters. It gives the "ch" sound in English. Every sound has a unique letter in Turkish.

    But you have different letters in Finnish as well

    Well, being a student of Arabic calligraphy, I've always wanted to learn calligraphy from the Turkish masters of the art - heard so much of their expertise.

    I should learn first, 'Where can I learn calligraphy?'

    Yes calligraphy has been a famous art since the Ottoman period. You can say " Kaligrafiyi nereden öğrenebilirim?"

    It is not similar to Arabic also. I mean the similarity between Arabic and English is even more than the similarity between Turkish and these languages.

    There are many Arabic (and also Persian) loanwords in Turkish. But besides that the grammar is very different.

    Calligrahpy'e genelde ''Kaligrafi'' değil de, ''hat sanatı'' deniliyor abi, özellikle Arapça söz konusu olduğunda
    ''Kuran Mekke'de indi, Mısır'da okundu, Istanbul'da (Türkiye'de) yazıldı'' sözünden yola çıkarak sormuş olmalı.

    This video might be a good introduction:

    Maybe, maybe not..But it is interesting you can be sure of that

    For example the snetence order is completely reverse,

    In English we say "Be quickly" or "I come from England"..This is same in Arabic I think

    But in Turkish we say "Çabuk(quickly) ol(be)" or "İngiltereden(from England) geliyorum(I come)

    Sometimes one turkish word is equal to one English sentence "Türkiyelileştiremediklerimizdenmisiniz? (Are you one of those whom we could not make from Turkey?)"

    Well, the same thing in Arabic

    We say many Turkish words in our Arabic dialect in Tunisia like : Aman (Please) - Kahya (deputy) - Toz - Kazma - Babour - Tanjra...
    We say all of these non sense because of the colonialism of the Ottoman empire lol
