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 advanced-level module that extends your knowledge of the Turkish language, honing your ability to communicate orally and textually on a full complement of subjects and registers. It provides you with the means and opportunity for you to take your reading, listening, speaking, writing and cultural knowledge to level B2 or C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Through language, the module will deepen 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.
