Voices from Turkey: Developing Novice-Level Students' Communicative and Cultural Proficiency
Posted: November 6, 2013
Don't miss the final Language Matters presentation of the semester!
Bargaining with the street vendor, tricking Mom into going to the Internet café, interpreting Turkish coffee grinds online… Dr. Jeannette Okur, from the Department of Middle Eastern Studies, 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!
Feel free to bring your lunch.
