DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES

At TED Atakent College, a program developed by Turkish Education Association and TED Ankara College is applied. An intensive English program is offered in the preparatory classes. With this application, our students become ready for the high school education whose language of instruction is English.
At the end of the preparatory year, our students are expected to come to B1 + level in the European Language Common Criteria (CEFR) and to C1 level at the end of high school.
In all class levels, additional work is done either individually or in groups. Assessment examinations are carried out at all levels and the results of these examinations are analyzed. Furthermore, the exams taken during the year are assessed by the Measurement and Evaluation Office in coordination with the Turkish Education Association; unit analysis of courses, presentation tables, exam analyzes are created and feedback is given to TED Schools.

Foreign Language Teaching Strategy

Our basic approach is to create a classroom environment in which our students can learn foreign languages in a meaningful and effective manner based on modern teaching methods and differentiated learning models that take individual differences and learning styles into account.
Care is taken to ensure that these classroom environments also reflect the international perspective of our institution and make our students feel part of today’s global world. We believe that the most effective language teaching system in this global understanding is based on the cooperation of Turkish and foreign teachers who support active student participation and we plan our academic studies in this direction.
In classroom practices and classroom activities, social environments in which students use foreign languages are created realistically. In-class and extracurricular activities enable students to express themselves in English and create a fun learning environment. Rich content and interaction-focused workshops offered give our students the opportunity to bridge the language skills they possess and communication competences. A strong emphasis is placed on the production of effective language skills with a wide range of studies based on performance.

The Second Foreign Language

Though English is the primary focus of foreign language acquisition, TED Atakent language courses also include Spanish, German and French as second foreign language courses. Our Foreign Language Department aims to progress towards becoming a world citizen by learning about different cultures and respecting differences while developing the ability to express themselves in another language.
