Abstract

Teaching Turkish as a foreign language is an increasingly important field. The number of foreigners who want to learn Turkish is increasing day by day. In foreign language teaching, four basic language skills are emphasized and teachers make various applications in the lessons to improve students' basic language skills. Textbooks are among the resources used in foreign language teaching. Activities prepared in accordance with the principles of each level can speed up students language learning processes. In addition, the use of various visuals in the activities in the textbooks can intensify the students attention, making it easier to understand abstract concepts. Speech, one of the four basic language skills, is a skill that exists in every moment of human life. While learning a foreign language, as in their mother tongue, people provide their communication with speaking skills. Students who improve their speaking skills can express themselves more effectively, increase their self-confidence and communicate comfortably with their environment. In this study, the speaking activities of the Turkish textbook 1 for New Hitit Foreigners and the Turkish A1 textbook for Istanbul Foreigners were compared. It was emphasized whether visuals were used in the speech activities examined, whether the activities developed other skills as well. In addition, the appropriateness of the activities to those measured for the A1 level speech assessment in the European Common Reference for Languages text was examined. It is hoped that the suggestions made based on the findings reached by comparing the speech activities in both books will contribute to the new speech activities.
