Abstract

Foreign language learning is an unavoidable concept of life in the 21st century. In our daily lives, we are constantly in touch with people with different languages and cultures, and we are living in a multilingual and multicultural world. Competence in one or more foreign languages is not only essential, but also rewarding for the careers of working people. As there is so much demand and need to learn foreign languages, there are many courses and institutions offering language courses. However, finding the right course and support for language learners is not so easy. It is very important to make these courses effective and enjoyable as education in this century is less concerned with the facts or rules of a language, but it is more concerned with learning practical skills that make use of these facts or rules. EAQUALS, the European Association for Quality Language Services, aims to assure the quality of teaching and learning in language schools and departments. The main task of EAQUALS is to ensure that the language teaching and other services provided in the institutions it accredits are of high quality. This qualitative study tries to find an answer to the question of to what extent the secondary education institutions in Turkey are able to apply the quality criteria of EAQUALS in English language teaching. The present study is going to broaden the research on improving and maintaining the quality of foreign language learning and teaching in Turkish secondary education institutions. (245 words)
