Learn Kazakh

The Turkic languages spread from SE Europe to Western China, with lots of the Central Asian languages being Turkic in origin. Although the writing system of the Turkic languages may differ (Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic alphabets), there are strong similarities in grammar and vocabulary. There is no grammatical gender, which will be a relief to those who have struggled with the concept of masculine and feminine nouns in Romance languages!
