Instructional Turkish Program of Bilfen has been structured on four basic skills which are namely listening, speaking, reading and writing. The skills are handled in themselves and associated with the other skills as a whole.
Our objective in Turkish course is to upskill students in these four areas and ensure that these skills turn into a habit. Additionally, we aim at growing up individuals who can use their language accurately and functionally and are aware of the richness and expressive strength of Turkish language.
For the sake of reading-writing acquisition on a sound basis, Linguistic Skills Development and Creative Writing Program is applied within the scope of Turkish course. Instead of memorizing the knowledge, our students achieve producing this knowledge through such programs.
The knowledge must be subjected to various cognitive processes for the achievement of learning.
This theory consists of four cognitive processes which are namely "Planning", "Attention", "Simultaneous" and "Successive" and is named with the first letters of these cognitive processes.
The Turkish course, our classroom activities and lesson plans have been planned to achieve these four cognitive processes. Activities for improving these four areas are organized in the fields of text review, concept knowledge, creative writing and speaking. Moreover, our instructional materials and publications have been designed in accordance with this theory.
Linguistic Skills Development Program
Being introduced in 2008 for the purpose of improving the reading skills in the areas of listening-speaking-reading and writing which are the primary components of the Turkish course, the "Linguistic Skills Development Program" is started to be applied at the 1st grade and completed at the 6th grade. Our program has been designed on the basis of the individual needs of each grade.
Technical Reading Practice
The "Technical Reading Practice" is started to be applied at the 1st grade and completed at the 4th grade. Technical reading practice is a voice based activity. Our purpose in this practice is to ensure that students are aware of word, syllable and voice units in spoken language, recognize and differentiate the voices which consist of words and carry out cognitive processes with respect to the units in spoken language.
