Turkish and German subjects in our schools are handled by the co-ordinated plans. By the studies produced in interdisciplinary cooperation, the course content is associated with life. Our program has been created with the units planned appropriate to the Framework Programme of European Common Language Criteria. With organized activities we target to improve students’ language skills in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing by their active participation in courses. Studies are conducted that our students graduate at level B1 of the Common European Language Criteria. Our students document their language levels with the Fit1, Fit2 and ZDj exams that are internationally recognized and implemented by the German Cultural Center.
We give German language courses to our students who are enrolled in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades lasting 3 weeks in August. After the school has opened, lessons continue on every Saturday during the first term. Foreign language teaching in Kindergarten is planned as a part of the daily life. There are 12 hours of German lessons a week for the groups of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. Upper grades have 12 hours a week. These lessons are taught both by native speakers and teachers from Turkey separetely. Teaching a foreign language by living is our main goal. For that reason we have student exchange programmes, summer schools in Germany, FIT exams which are implemented with the collaboration of Geothe Institute, plays, creative reading and writing and rhyme competitions.
