This is the second part of the two-year intensive course by the end of which students are expected to complete the equivalent of the levels A1 and A2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Although the course will equip the students to communicate and read in modern Turkish, its main aim is to give a quick progress towards the future ability to read Ottoman texts and Ottoman historical documents in Arabic script for those wishing to continue their studies in that direction.

The aim of the course

By the end of the first academic year the students are expected to be familiar with the basics of the Turkish grammar, to have approximately 3000 - 4000 vocabulary units with a special emphasis on synonyms already in the first term, that is, on acquiring a broad knowledge of both the modern and the classical Turkish lexicon. This will enable them to proceed towards translations in the winter term and to more complicated text readings next year, leading them eventually to Ottoman source readings as well.

Assessment

Regular attendance, at least 18 sessions out of 22, is mandatory.

Student performance will be assessed through

1. class performance

2. regular written home works that have to be handed in at the beginning of each class by the students. I will return them corrected at the beginning of the next class

3. at least 8 short written quizzes mainly on vocabulary

4. 3 complex tests after each unit of the course book

5. a final written exam composed of text translation, grammar and communication exercises

Terminal grade: 10% quizzes, 30% tests, 20% class performance, 40% final exam.

Format

Each class will begin with a short written or oral quiz on the latest vocabulary and grammar.

Students will regularly be given specially prepared grammar and vocabulary sheets to use apart of the fundamental course book and workbook. Other readings, visual and audio materials will also be used during the classes.

Students should estimate that successful participation in this class will require at least three times the amount of time outside the classroom than inside the classroom. Both fall and winter terms will be concluded with a final revision and a consultation followed by a final written exam.
