Turkish for Beginners by non-Turkish
27 January 2013 | by k_genghisSee all my reviews

It's a nice series plotting the chaos in a case of marriage of a couple from totally different cultures. Kids from previous marriages have serious problems of adopting the new siblings and their life styles. The German family is a typical family of German, whereas the Turkish family is an extremely religious sort of Turkish family living abroad for 1-2 generations. In fact, It's quite convenient to practice German language with this title. But it's creepy weird to see none of the cast is from Turkish origin, despite the fact that there are a couple of millions of Turkish-origin people in Germany. I was able to confirm this by checking out the names of cast.
