Evaluation of the Grammar Teaching Process by Using the Methods Used in Turkish Language Teaching as a Foreign Language: A Case Study
Öztürk, Basak Karakoç
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v6 n2 p278-288 2018
The preferred methods for the success of foreign language teaching and the reflection of these methods on the teaching process are very important. Since approaches and methods in language teaching enable the teacher to use different techniques in his/her lectures, they provide a more effective teaching process. The methodology in teaching the Turkish language as a foreign language is generally discussed for the development of language skills, and there is not enough emphasis on which methods are used and how they are reflected in the linguistic teaching process. In teaching grammar, some aspects are adopted such as learning the rules and structures directly, following a specific order and transferring them, intimidating those rules by integrating with language skills and even ignoring teaching the grammar. The starting point of the study is to determine the reflection of these perspectives upon the teaching of grammar and to investigate which methods are used in the teaching of grammar. The purpose of the study is to determine the methods and techniques which the teacher uses by teaching grammar through teaching the Turkish language as a foreign language. In this way, the process of teaching grammar will be assessed by taking into account the beliefs and views of teachers. In this study, the case study among qualitative research patterns will be used. The lecturers who work in Turkish Language Teaching Centers in various universities and the volunteers to participate in the study will build up the study group. The data will be collected using the interview technique and the resulting data obtained will be analyzed through the content analysis. As a result of the study, suggestions will be brought up from the perspectives of teachers, from the methods they use and from the applications of what they do. Hence, it is hoped that awareness can be raised in the design of a grammar teaching process.
