Yildiz Technical University Company Information
The Foreign Languages Teaching Department, at Yildiz Technical University (YTU), was established as a sub-branch of The Department of Educational Sciences in The Faculty of Arts and Sciences in the year 2000 and it was restructured upon the foundation of The Faculty of Education in 2004. In the fall semester of 2012-13, the preparatory program was launched in our department located on the Davutpa?a Campus. The curriculum consists of courses intended for teaching second language acquisition, approaches to teaching a second language, and improving teaching skills in foreign language education. Students have the opportunity to contribute to their own professional development by choosing courses in line with their areas of interest - in addition to the required second foreign language courses (German). Courses taught in the first two years, help students form the basis of how the English language works in general. The purpose of courses taught in the third and fourth year is to provide students with professional skills by taking courses that include evaluation, material design, and teaching English to young learners. Senior students prepare for their prospective teaching positions through implementing what they have covered previously - both theoretically and practically throughout their education. Our students are better prepared for their teaching positions by participating in teaching internships in an actual classroom environment in schools governed by The Ministry of Education,determined by instructors from the faculty. In our department, we have 1 associate professor, 4 assistant professors, 4 instructors, and 4 research assistants. Our instructors and research assistants pursue their graduate degrees (both M.A. and Ph.D.).
