is considered as the main lesson in every stage of education (including
undergraduate classes). This is because Turkish is the native language
and contains the national literature.
At Private Istanbul College, providing the sense of national identity,
endearing the native language, teaching both national and international
literature are one of the main objectives of Turkish lesson. Our Turkish
education program is a program which excludes memorization, questions
and investigates the events, utilizes drama methods, offers projects.
The purpose is to create individuals who can express themselves both
orally and in writing, and enjoy the literature.
The students, who have the good command of their native language, will
also gain the ability to comment on the text they read. The primary
importance of Turkish lesson in the everyday life as well as the
academic life is that it ensures the intellectual skills as to
understanding what is read or listened, to comment on those, to express
the emotions and thoughts orally or in writing.
The goal our school set in Turkish education is to raise individuals who
love Turkish, uses it correctly, enjoys literature and arts, and asserts
himself with his culture and standing. Another activity that is carried
out in our Turkish lesson is reading. The purpose is to introduce both
Turkish authors and poets, and the authors and poets from the world
literature, and help the students understand their lives and works. Such
activities will not only help our students gain a wide mental capacity,
but will also prove to be beneficial in terms of general knowledge.
