Language Matters--Voices from Turkey: Developing Novice-Level Students' Communicative and Cultural Proficiency

Wed, November 13, 2013 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM • Texas Union Sinclair Suite, UNB 3.128

with Jeannette Okur, Dept of Middle Eastern Studies

Bargaining with the street vendor, tricking Mom into going to the Internet café, interpreting Turkish coffee grinds online… This presentation will demonstrate how culturally relevant online listening drills introduce novice-level students to “real use” of basic vocabulary and grammatical structures, helping them to take control of their learning and to more easily reproduce language patterns in face-to-face interaction in class!
