    1) When do I use 'Öyle'. 'Böyle' and 'işte' ?
    Böyle and Öyle come from the demonstrative pronouns Bu/This and Şu/That

    Böyle: like this, this way
    as an adjective
    Böyle bir ev daha önce hiç görmedim.
    I've never seen 'a house like this'/'such a house' before.
    as an adverb
    Bana böyle bakma.
    Don' look at me like this.

    Şöyle: like that, that way
    adj.
    Şöyle bir araba almak istiyorum.
    I want to buy a car like that.
    adv.
    Şöyle yürürsen düşmezsin.
    If you walk like that, you do not fall.

    Şöyle has a third use.
    But the meaning does not change if you sjip and don't say it, just a colloquial term.
    (Şöyle) bir uyuyayım dedim, kapı zili çaldı.
    I just felt like sleep, the doorbell ringed.

    Şöyle bir yürüyelim (or just Yürüyelim mi / Haydi yürüyelim), belki alışveriş de yaparız.
    Let's have a walk, maybe we can do shopping, too.

    işte: right here, here it is ----- you point at a place
    -Where is my key? Anahtarım nerede?
    --Right here, it is. İşte burada.

    When you use the word işte; it is like pointing the place in this sentence. Actually if you take it away, the sentence means the same in any case except;

    iş: job, work
    işte: at work

    2) What does 'Saçmalama means ?
    Don't be ridiculous : Saçmalama

    3) Why is "Benim" used instead of "Ben" sometimes ?
    Benim is the genitive form of the word Ben
    Bu benim. This is mine. / This is me
    Bu benim arabam. This is my car.

    4) Why is also "bana used instead of Beni"
    I understand the difference between accusative and dative, but sometimes i get confused
    For example; (Sana ihtiyacim var ) why not "seni" what's the difference and how can i figure it out ?

    It is the best and I think the only way to learn which case a verb requires when learning what it means.

    Saçmalama means don't talk nonsense


    I can't explain others because my english is deficient

    i found this website. It will be useful.
