I am Turkish and this is the first time I have tried to read and listen to Tatar language examples in this forum. At first, it seemed quite different and I understood little. However, after reading a few sentences and listening to the example dialogues, I could understand at least what they are talking about. Tatar language is not so close to Turkish as Azeri and Turkmen, but it is clear that with some effort a Turk can easily understand and speak it.
