Turkish falls under Altaic linguistic family in the Altay category. It’s spoken in Turkey, Greece, and the hinterlands of Western China among other places an estimated 70 million people. During the Ottoman Empire, it was spoken in places like Egypt, Vienna, and Northern Africa too. Nomads also brought the language to countries in Asia Minor like Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Azerbaijan.
People who speak other languages like Korean, for example, may find learning Turkish easier because they’re both in the Altaic family and share similarities.
