Nations is the thirtieth (assuming read left to right) skill in the language tree for Turkish. There are five lessons that teach countries, languages and nationalities.

Grammar NotesEdit

Turkish denotes languages by adding the suffix -CA to the name of the country. the capital C in -CA is because it can be either -çA or -cA depending on consonant harmony, which is described in the locative case skill.

Also remember that Turkish differentiates between languages and nationalities, unlike English.
