In the first year, basic conversational skills in Modern Turkish will be introduced to students. Students will develop elementary to pre-intermediate level of reading and writing skills. Basic grammar required for all skills will also be emphasized. All four skills will be embedded in the course throughout the year. In the second year, students are exposed to more advanced structures of language and vocabulary appropriate to the level. Students will be able to use their knowledge of Turkish language through classroom activities, homework assignments and projects.
