hi, first of all good luck and wish you a good start!If you mean with 4000 TRY just eating, buying clothes, eating outside once a while or going to cinema(social life..) its just enough for 4 person, even maybe some months tight.It really depends on your needs.But for example international schools are quiet expensive.
