This course is the first term of a three-year sequence for Turkish language learning. This course is designed for learners who are interested in Turkish language and culture, and who have no or very little prior experience in the language.

The course will provide a foundation for the learning the basics of Turkish through grounding in the structure of sentences and current usage with the emphasis on oral communication. The course will focus equally on the development of pronunciation, comprehension in four skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), grammar, and vocabulary.

  • Basic Turkish conversation for common and unexpected survival situations.
  • Reading beyond the elementary level to prepare students to conduct research in Turkish.
  • Writing based on conversation and readings.
  • Basic grammar required for all skills.

In terms of the Provisional Proficiency Guidelines for Turkish of the AATT (American Association of Teachers of Turkic languages), this course aims to bring students to the mid-intermediate level in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

There is no required textbook. The classes will be enhanced by ANVILL (A National Virtual Language Lab), CTools materials, worksheets, handouts, different audio and visual aids including websites, movies, documentaries, advertisements, and video clips.
