  • EXPLORING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SECOND LANGUAGE VOCABULARY LEARNING
           STRATEGIES AND VOCABULARY KNOWLEDGE

    • Authors: Denitza A. Charkova, Krassimira Charkova
      Abstract: The present study sought to explore and identify vocabulary learning strategies that lead to the attainment of depth of vocabulary knowledge in a second language.  For the purpose, 110 Bulgarian language learners of English took Qian and Schedl’s (2004) depth of vocabulary knowledge test and completed a related survey. After dividing the sample into a limited knowledge group and a superior knowledge group, the data were analyzed through discriminant function analysis which showed eight vocabulary learning strategies as significantly associated with the superior knowledge group. These strategies were named  linguistically-driven strategies since they involve regular attention to linguistic features, including: paradigmatic associations (synonyms, antonyms), morphological structure (prefixes, roots, and suffixes), syntagmatic associations (collocations) and pronunciation. The results suggest that regular use of linguistically-driven vocabulary learning strategies helps build deep knowledge of second language vocabulary.Keywords: vocabulary learning strategies, depth of vocabulary knowledge, second language  teaching, second language learning

  • WORD FAMILIARITY EFFECTS IN EFL READING: AN EYE TRACKING STUDY

    • Authors: Emrah Dolgunsöz
      Abstract: Do you know what happens in mind when we encounter a novel word while reading a newspaper, a paragraph or a short story' Via eye tracking technique, this study aimed to gather clues about how our mind reacts to an unknown word while we read in another language by examining word familiarity effects on eye movements during EFL reading. After a vocabulary test, eye movements of 60 EFL learners at intermediate level were recorded while they read identical sentence pairs including words with different length and frequency. The results showed that (1) total time spent on words and reanalysis times were predicted by vocabulary knowledge, (2) initial word processing was not predicted by vocabulary size (3) unfamiliar words attended more attention and required more cognitive effort than familiar words, (4) familiar words are processed in similar time spans for English as L1 and L2 but unfamiliar words cause more cognitive load in EFL. The results were discussed in comparison to L1 eye movement research in reading and were evaluated regarding EFL reading in terms of noticing hypothesis, incidental vocabulary acquisition and EFL reading instruction.

  • THE ESSENCE OF SEMIOTICS AS A MEDIATOR OF COMMUNICATION AND COGNITION

    • Authors: Ismail Erton
      Abstract: Studies in modern linguistic theory to determine the scope and vision of human communication have shifted their attention to semiotics, in which actions speak louder than words as some say. The semiotic capacity of an individual reflects the effective and efficient usage of pragmatic competence in which the language user has the awareness of sociocultural and anthropological conventions processed and produced in the course of communication. Such a capacity also enables a systematic usage of cognitive skills, thereby developing the value of the communicative context and the perception of the individuals in various discourses. This paper attempts to identify, decode, and proceed utterances in a systematic mixture of psychological, physiological, sociological and anthropological procedures, in which non-verbal expressions appear as signs and symbols to communicate information. It is also argued that not only do individuals attain semiotic information naturally, they also do so  with proper semiotic training and research. In this respect, studies in biosemiotics explore the micro and the macro cosmos of human nature which are in a continuous cycle of interaction to process language. It is  further  established that the curiosity to discover the value systems in human communication through semiotic decoding means more than the mere study of language and its linguistic properties.Keywords: Pragmatics, Competence, Semiotics, Cognitive Theory, Communication, Cognition, Biosemiotics

  • AN ANALYSIS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERCEIVED TEACHER SUPPORT AND
           MOTIVATIONAL/EMOTIONAL RESPONSES

    • Authors: Murad Sherzad Othman, Mehmet Kılıç
      Abstract: Teacher support has an important role in effective language learning, because it helps students have successful motivational and emotional responses. It leads to decreases in anxiety and increases in intrinsic motivation, help-seeking behavior, and effort, factors of productive language learning. Based on this fact, the current study aims to analyze the relationships between EFL students’ perceptions of emotional/instrumental support and their motivational/emotional responses. The participants were 200 EFL learners at a state university in Turkey. The data were collected through a questionnaire and a semi-structured interview. Correlation coefficients were obtained to detect the relationships of emotional/instrumental support with anxiety, intrinsic motivation, help-seeking behavior, and effort. Finally, independent-samples t-tests were administered to find potential differences between genders concerning emotional/instrumental support, anxiety, intrinsic motivation, help-seeking behavior, and effort. The findings showed that emotional and instrumental support are two related types of teacher support. Besides, significant positive correlations of emotional/instrumental support with intrinsic motivation, help-seeking behavior, and effort were detected, along with negative correlations of emotional/instrumental support with anxiety. Furthermore, the results showed no significant difference between genders concerning emotional support, anxiety, intrinsic motivation, and effort, but significant differences concerning instrumental support and help-seeking behavior were obtained based on gender. Moreover, the findings of the interviews supported those of the quantitative analyses.

  • SPEAKING ANXIETY OF FOREIGN LEARNERS OF TURKISH IN TARGET CONTEXT

    • Authors: Ayşegül Takkaç Tulgar
      Abstract: While speaking anxiety has received much attention in foreign language education, speaking anxiety experienced in second language learning context still needs investigation. In addition, while there are many studies on speaking anxiety in English, speaking anxiety in Turkish learned in second language learning context remains under-examined. This qualitative study was intended to investigate the sources of speaking anxiety for foreign learners of Turkish as a second language and their coping strategies with these challenges. The data collected through semi-structures observations and open-ended questions from ten foreign learners of Turkish were analyzed through content analysis. The results revealed that the participants, as they had language learning experiences in foreign language learning context in their home countries and second language learning context in Turkey, favored the latter learning environment for their speaking development because of the available chances for exposure to and practice in the target language. However, the participants also referred to some challenges increasing their speaking anxiety such as the fear of making mistakes and being negatively evaluated, immediate questions, self-comparison with others and self-evaluation. In addition, they counted such anxiety-creating, context-specific factors as the fear of communicating with native speakers, having native-speaker teachers, accent of the local people, cultural differences between themselves, their classmates and the native speakers. They also reported the strategies like considering mistakes as natural and beneficial, regarding the existence of native speakers and friends from other countries contributory for language development and cultural enrichment, having self-preparation and doing individual listening or watching activities. In the light of these results, some practical suggestions were provided.

  • THE EFFECTS OF CLICKER-AIDED FLIPPED CLASSROOM MODEL ON LEARNING
           ACHIEVEMENT, PHYSICS ANXIETY AND STUDENTS’ PERCEPTIONS

    • Authors: Gülsüm Aşıksoy, Yasemin Sorakin
      Abstract: Similar to all stages of education, the use of the flipped classroom model continues to become more widespread in higher education. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of flipped classroom model on learning achievement and students’ anxiety towards their courses. The true experimental design was used in this study. The study was conducted with the participation of 61 undergraduate students taking the physics course. In the in-class component of the flipped classroom model, while the student response system was used with the experimental group, it was excluded during the study conducted on the control group students. Several data were collected from the physics achievement test, the physics anxiety questionnaire, and semi-structured interviews. The gathered data were analyzed in accordance with whether the student response system was utilized in the in-class component of the flipped classroom model. The results have shown that, in comparison to the control group students, the learning achievement of the experimental group students had increased and that their anxiety had decreased significantly. Furthermore, it has been determined that the experimental group students had a positive perception of student response system’s utilization in class. This study may provide aid for lecturers in integrating the student response system to the flipped classroom model.Keywords: flipped classroom, student response system, learning achievement, anxiety,

  • THE INTEGRATION OF CORPUS INTO EFL SPEAKING INSTRUCTION: A STUDY OF
           LEARNER PERCEPTIONS

    • Authors: Aysel Şahin Kızıl, Zehra Savran
      Abstract: Recent years have shown a growing interest in using corpora in language instruction, enhancing data-driven learning (DDL) pedagogy by promoting the use of tools and techniques of corpus linguistics in language classrooms. Many studies have tested the impact of corpus tools in EFL writing or vocabulary instruction; however, little attention has been paid to the integration of corpus tools into EFL speaking instruction. This paper describes a small-scale study of corpus use in enhancing English speaking performance of EFL learners with a focus on their perceptions towards web-based concordancing. Drawn in accordance with convenience sampling procedures, the participants of the study were 31 university level EFL learners who experienced DDL activities in the speaking classroom. Data collected through a post-instruction perception questionnaire were analysed using descriptive statistics. Results indicated that students benefited from concordance based learning activities, and also hold positive attitudes towards using it in learning speaking. The findings also point out some challenges to overcome while using web-based concordancing in EFL instruction.     Keywords: EFL learners, data-driven learning (DDL), web-based concordancing, learner perceptions, speaking

  • SEMANTIC FIELDS AND EFL/ESL TEACHING

    • Authors: Gültekin Boran
      Abstract: The vocabulary of a language is a system of interrelated lexical networks but not a collection of independent items. Vocabulary of a language is organised into fields within which words interrelate and define each other in various ways. Sense relations are not enough to explain the relation between some lexical items. For example, we cannot explain the relation between patient and hospital through synonymy, antonym, hyponymy, polysemy or homonymy, but we can say that they belong to the same semantic field which we can label as ‘health’.  In this paper, semantic field also known as word field, lexical field, field of meaning, and semantic system is explained by giving supporting examples. Besides, some implications for Teaching English as a Foreign Language/Teaching English as a Second Language (TEFL/TESL) are suggested.Key words: Semantic fields, structural semantics, lexical network, lexical field, semantic system

  • A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF PERCEPTIONS ABOUT THE ‘COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK
           OF REFERENCE’ AMONG EFL TEACHERS WORKING AT STATE AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS

    • Authors: Burçak Yılmaz Yakışık, Fatma Ünveren Gürocak
      Abstract: Teachers play a vital role in the implementation of CEFR effectively. Teachers working at MONE have been offered training related to CEFR; however, not every teacher had the accessibility to the training around Turkey. That’s why, what language teachers know about CEFR and how they implement the principles of the document needs to be investigated. This study aims to find out language teachers’ views on the use of CEFR. The researchers conducted the study among English language teachers working at private and state schools in different cities around Turkey.  Quantitative data analysis has been used to reveal the differences between the perceptions of English teachers regarding CEFR.   The findings of the study revealed that teachers working at the private schools are more aware of the practices of the CEFR in their teaching.

  • REFLECTIONS ON A TEACHER-LED CPD MODEL FOR EFL TEACHERS

    • Authors: İlknur Bayram, Özlem Canaran
      Abstract: This qualitative case study aims to explore EFL teachers’ reflections of a teacher-led continuous professional development model conducted at the department of foreign languages of a privately funded university. It also aims to find out what implications this model might have for the professional development of teachers. Data for the study was collected through observations, focus group interviews, document analysis and an evaluation survey. Results of the study which was carried out during four academic terms (2015-2017) reveal that teachers reflected mostly on the process of the model, its implications for their professional development and offered suggestions for future CPD practices.Keywords: EFL Teachers, Teacher-led Professional Development, Qualitative Case Study

  • THE “SAFE SCHOOL” PERCEPTION OF CLASS PRESIDENTS IN SECONDARY
           SCHOOLS

    • Authors: Mehmet Metin Arslan
      Abstract: The aim of this research is to reveal the “safe school” perceptions of secondary class presidents. The sample of the study, which is a qualitative research and figured as “phenomenology design”, is constituted by eight class president students in vocational and technical secondary schools. The data were collected with a semi-structured interview form consisting of three open-ended questions to determine the opinions of the class presidents. The responses of participants to questions in writing were analyzed by descriptive analysis. In the study, the “school safety” perception was examined with the perspective of the class presidents in high schools. Some of the remarkable results of the research can be summarized as follows: The participants reply the question “To what extent is a safe school environment important for you'” such that they generally consider the school’s physical, social and psychological environment as problematic. They indicate the importance of solving the problems of these environments in creating a safe school climate. Participants point out to the parent-school cooperation for the question regarding the duties of the school management, staff and students. Some of the participants emphasized the risks arising from the school environment.

  • DIGITAL COMPETENCE IN PRIMARY EDUCATION: A REVIEW OF LEARNING OUTCOMES

    • Authors: Esin Hazar
      Abstract: This paper examines the current status of digital competence indicators in the Turkish primary school curricula. The European Commission had long been studying on developing a common digital competence framework for citizens and in 2016 a revised framework was published to be used as a reference in various sectors as well as education. In most official papers the importance of digital competence is highly stressed and studies to provide students with these skills are carried out by Turkish Ministry of National Education (MONE) and other governmental institutes. In this paper we explore the indicators of digital competence standards in the Turkish primary education. We identified the curricula of three compulsory subjects and analyzed the learning outcomes of these curricula to understand the place of digital competence standards in curricula and in which competence areas are emphasized mostly. The review was conducted using the curricula of three subject areas in primary education: the Turkish language, mathematics and personal and social development. The review of the learning outcomes in these curricula shows that 7, 5 % of learning outcomes emphasizes digital competence in the Turkish language curricula while this rate is %4 in mathematics and personal and social development subject areas when the top rates are considered. It is seen that most digital competence areas are ignored in each subject; communication and collaboration is totally excluded in all three subjects while data and information literacy was included in merely Turkish language curriculum; safety competence area was stated only in personal and social development curriculum and Mathematics curriculum contained learning outcomes merely related to the problem solving.

  • THE EFFECT OF TWO MODES OF INSTRUCTION: MODELING VS. PRESENTATIONAL

    • Authors: Mujgan Buyuktas Kara, Elke Van Steendam, Gert Rijlaarsdam, Huseyin Kuru
      Abstract: We implemented an intervention of four lessons and tested the effects of two instructional modes as compared to the regular curriculum practices for completing a synthesis task at the preparatory program of a Turkish university. Participants were 48 upper-intermediate EFL learners (mean age=18) assigned to three conditions. The presentational condition received direct strategy instruction supported by mnemonics; the modeling condition observed a video of a peer doing the task using the same strategies mnemonic. In the control condition, there was no explicit reference to strategies; rather, students inferred the necessary information about writing an effective synthesis text from the instruction and the lesson materials. We hypothesized that both of the experimental conditions would have a positive effect on students’ synthesis text quality and writing processes and that modeling of explicit strategy use would have an effect over and above the other conditions. Results showed that students in the modeling condition improved their source use skills significantly more than students in the presentational condition, which was maintained in the delayed posttest four weeks later. No statistically significant condition effect was observed for content and authenticity of students’ texts. The modeling condition also showed and reported a more process-oriented approach to writing.
