Turkish Grammar – How to form sentences in Turkish Language

I have a friend from Germany and he is trying to learn Turkish like you are. And sometimes when he tries to speak He spoke like Tarzan. Why? Because he has no idea about the line of words. So here is how you form sentences in Turkish language.

Subject + Complements+VERB.

Hint : VERB is always at the end.

also there is a relation with the verb and the subject

This order is the most used, and make sense form. Lets see some examples.

Stefan işe gidiyor. //Stefan is going to work

Ben Türkçe öğretiyor+um. // I am teaching Turkish.
Sen Türkçe öğreniyor+sun // You are learning Turkish.
Stefan camı kırdı. //Stefan broke the glass.
