first sentence should be - Genelde Türkler çok arkadaş canlısı. (if you meant friendly)
second sentence - Karantinadan dolayı gıda istifi yapılmadı ve kargaşa çıkmadı. Bu yüzden Londra'daki Türk marketleri boş değil.

Some Turks say it is Turkish food that the Greeks stole, some Greeks say it is Greek food that the Turks stole. And some say it is just all mediterranean or eastern food.

Since 1928, Turkish has been written in a slightly modified Latin alphabet which is almost phonetic. Loanwords are adjusted to the Turkish spelling. For example, 
media  medya , 
television  televizyon
restaurant  restoran and 
hotel  otel.

The absence of feminine or masculine forms of nouns and adjectives in Turkish also makes life easier for learners. But just like in French, you has two forms, the informal sen and formal siz.

The verbs – which always come at the end of sentences - require suffixes according to the level of formality you choose when speaking. Suffixes in Turkish may well cause difficulty at first, but once you’ve got your head around the logic of conjugations, you’ll see that it’s not impossible to figure out all verbal conjugations. 

Git(mek), to go, in present tense appears as -yor: 

 Ben gidiyorum, I am going: gid-i-yor is the present tense and -um is the first person singular personalisation suffix which determines who is doing the action. 

Git(mek) in past tense appears as ti: 
 Ben gittim, I went, : -ti is the past tense and -m is the first person singular personalisation.
 
Git(mek), in future appears as cek, depending on the vowels: 
 Ben gideceğim, I will go: gidecek(ğ)* is the future tense of to go and -im is the first person singular personalisation suffix.
