Abstract

The culture plays a huge role in society formation. Because it includes analysing life style of communities, their traditions, beliefs, language and art. Language learning or teaching activities in connection with the culture helps to understand the characteristics of society which are reflected or not reflected in the language. Because language during the years through the the spirit, brain and conscience of the community reached our days. “A nation’s history, geography, religious values, folklore, music, art, literature, science which perform worldview and all types of common values filtred through the hundred years by words symbolically flows into the language treasury.” (Barın, 2004). The importance of teaching Turkish to foreigners in Turkey is rising. We should teach not only phonetic features of our language to foreigners, but also Turkish culture and history. Language is the basic mechanism that transfers culture to time and space and refines it (Güngör, 1991:214). Therefore, written and verbal pieces used in language education should comprise cultural talking patterns. Turkey joined Socrates Project, which regulates common education practices in Europe, on 24th of January 2000, with European Council’s decision number 253/2000/EC. For that reason, foreign language teaching practices in European countries are adopted in Turkey (Mirici, 05.02.2014). These practices are being applied in connection with framework programme. One of this common framework programme’s features is cultural diversity. In other words, foreign language teaching practices should also comprise cultural aspects of the language. In this research, we will investigate with scanning method, how much and how the cultural talking patterns of Turkish culture are reflected, on terms of Teaching Turkish as a Foreing language, on the texts of A1-A2-B1-B2 level TÖMER books of Istanbul University. Keywords: Turkish teaching, ELP, Turkish lesson books
