LANGUAGE TEACHING IN THE TURKISH DEPARTMENT

As in all the other departments of Dilmer, the total method as a kind of eclectic method that we apply in the Turkish department’s teaching activities has been proven throughout the world, to be competent and valid.

The aim is to enable the students to achieve the four basic language skills, which are the listening comprehension, reading comprehension,oral and written expression, without neglecting the grammar. In this way we ensure the students are able to learn equally the six basic skills of language, grammar, reading, listening, dictation, writing and speaking. We closely monitor the world developments in the language teaching area and the newest and most advanced methods are examined and adapted to the teaching of Turkish.

EDUCATION PROGRAM

There are seven levels in Turkish teaching at Dilmer.

1) Elementary Turkish 1

2) Elementary Turkish 2

3) Intermediate Turkish 1

4) Intermediate Turkish 2

5) Upper-Intermediate Turkish 1

6) Upper-Intermediate Turkish 2

7) Upper-Intermediate Turkish 3

According to this program, when a student completes one level successfully, he automatically gains the right to continue to the next level. In our courses, the students who complete Elementary, Intermediate and Upper-Intermediate levels achieve certificates approved by the Ministry of National Education.

ELEMENTARY TURKISH 1

The student who completes this stage learns the three basic tenses (past tense, present continuous and future) and the student is able to use them adequately. Also the student can converse in everyday conversations easily and can ask and answer simple questions.

ELEMENTARY TURKISH 2

At the end of this level, our students can converse fluently in everyday conversations. They are able to use some complex phrases and ask and answer some complex questions.

INTERMEDIATE TURKISH 1

After this stage, our students are very fluent in everyday conversation. In addition, they are able to converse and write about more complex topics, and they are able to read newspapers with the aid of a dictionary.

INTERMEDIATE TURKISH 2

The students who complete this level learn many complex phrases and they begin to use them in their conversation. During the lessons at this stage, short newspaper articles are examined. The students are able to discuss and talk about difficult topics.

UPPER-INTERMEDIATE TURKISH 1

At this stage our students learn all the other tenses, and they start using them all. Presentations are introduced into the classroom, and each student presents a topic at least once, that they have prepared at home. Also at this level, some newspaper and magazine articles, which are more complex, are examined during the lessons. The topics in these articles are discussed in the classroom. After this level is completed, the speech of the student improves and becomes extremely fluent.

UPPER-INTERMEDIATE TURKISH 2

The students who complete this level are able to speak extremely fluently about any topic. Also they are able to write their opinions and ideas on any subject using the correct rules of writing. At this level, some short stories are also studied in addition to newspaper and magazine articles.

UPPER-INTERMEDIATE TURKISH 3

We adapt our programme to suit the individuals requirements regarding their selected field of work or their interests. The student’s skill in using the language, both written and oral is improved intensely. During the course, much speaking and discussion practice takes place. Our students who are successful in the exam at the end of this level, receive diplomas approved by the Ministry of National Education. In the event of a student being offered a place at university, this diploma entitles the student to be exempt from prep. class.

TEACHING STAFF

All of our teachers are graduates of Turkish Linguistics and the Turkish Language and Literature department. Our teachers have also all achieved their Master’s Degree in Teaching Turkish as a Foreign Language. Our experienced teaching staff are well-versed in teaching Turkish as a foreign language, due to many years of experience.

THE DEVICES USED IN EDUCATION

In Turkish Education in Dilmer, a series of books named “Yabanci Dilim Turkçe” (‘My Foreign Language is Turkish’) and “Ýleri Türkçe” (‘Advanced Turkish’) are used. These are prepared by the teachers of our school, and are used in all levels of Turkish education, along with extra resources prepared by the Turkish department. In the advanced level, daily news articles from newspapers and articles from magazines are studied. Some audio-visual devices prepared according to the levels, are used regularly throughout the lessons.

This serie consists of six books which have been written by our teachers. At the moment, our books are used in our school and in the Turkish courses in some of the European universities, as resources for the lessons. The books for the first six courses have been prepared by Zeki SÖZER and Hakan YILMAZ. The book for the seventh Course, “Ilerleyen Türkcem” has been written by Recai Ünal.
