Lesson 9: Months of the Year

Last Updated on April 8, 2024

In our previous lesson, you learned the days of the week in Turkish and some words related to them that need to be known. It’s time to take a step further.

Getting to learn the months of the year in Turkish, just as in any other language, might seem challenging at first, but it is easier than you think. It is essential to note you need to know the months' names in Turkish to keep on track and not skip any special days and holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or events in Turkey. (Click on a month to go to Tom's Turkish Almanac to learn what it's like to travel in Turkey during that month.)

Like most countries, Turkey also uses the Gregorian calendar.

P.S.: In Turkey, the date format is written with the day first, followed by the month, and then the year. It's important to be aware of this format to avoid any confusion.
