Turkish and Turcoman are two of the Oghuz group Turkic languages. While Turcoman forms the east section in itself, Turkish is one of the Turkic languages that form the west part with Azerbaijani and Gagauz language. In this work, mistakes made by Turkmen students who learn Turkish as a foreign language will be tried to be identified. This paper aims at exemplifying and identifying different kinds of mistakes that Turkmen students do while learning Turkish as a foreign language, although Turkish and Turcoman are under the same subsection of the same language family; that’s to say, although these two languages have the same properties of phonology, morphology and syntax -and even sometimes the same vocabulary-, different kinds of mistakes are done by students while learning Turkish as a foreign language. Students, as the participants of workshop, are the students who learn Turkish as a foreign language in Turkish Language Education, Application and Research Centre of Kırklareli University. Mistakes done by students in written language will be identified and classified, and then solutions will be suggested via a comparative study of vocabulary, grammar, phonology, morphology, syntax of these two languages, namely Turkish and Turcoman.
