Thanks. Is English widely spoken or do you need to find a teenager who's learning it in school?

It depends.
On tourist places - like Egean sea, Pamukkale, Cappadocia - and hotels you can easy speak English.
Elsewhere mainly Turkish (or Kurdish), but without real difficulties to find a room or eat or at the gas stations.
