Özet

According to the published European Union Research reports about foreign language learning at an early age, supporting the foreign language use of children for it to go beyond being used in a mechanic way carries great importance. What is ideal here is to enable the use of foreign language both in a creative and structural way. Through the micro scale research carried Out in this study, there has been an attempt to identify, categorize and evaluate Turkish children's use of creative and structural language together at preschool. For this reason, the focus is drawn on two assumptions: 1. The language use based on previously learned structures realized as a result of the teacher's will, 2. creative use of language not realized as a result of the teacher's will. An attempt has been made to figure out the factors affecting the learning processes and learning after the observations and interviews carried out in the classroom. Within this framework, the problems and possibilities in the teaching of German language at preschool in Turkey are mentioned.
