This course is also designed for beginning students with little/no prior knowledge of the target language. Our objective is to get familiar with the Turkish sounding and obtain necessary vocabulary for higher levels. Oral participation in the target language is one of the most important components of this class.
Students will begin to talk about themselves and their preferences, activities, and interests in present/future/past time.
Specific goals include attaining at least a novice level of oral proficiency, or the ability to participate in basic conversations using learned material to handle simple needs and to express everyday courtesies. Students will get a “feel” for the Turkish-speaking world, grasp basic grammar concepts that will help in all future language study, develop good language study habits, and apply what has been learned about Turkish to English and other world languages.
I am going to supply the necessary material that you need for class periods. We are going to use Acilim Turkce Ders Kitabi. Also we may refer to some online resources.
