Turkish is a modern Turkic language spoken by some 80 million native speakers, largely in the Republic of Turkey, where it has official status. This is an intermediate-level Turkish module that extends your knowledge of the language, introducing you to new and more abstract fields of communication. It provides you with the means and opportunity for you to take your reading, writing, oral and aural skills in Turkish learning to level B1 (threshold) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). Through language, the module will continue your exposure to Turkish cultural expression. You will use a textbook as well as a variety of learning materials chosen by your lecturers.
If you have prior knowledge of Turkish acquired outside of your degree programme or have not completed the prerequisite modules, your level will be assessed by the module convenor in order to establish whether this module is suitable for you—admission in such cases is not guaranteed.
