Özet

Foreign language teaching and learning has been increasingly attached importance during the process of becoming a full member of the European Union. For this reason, for many years a great amount of efforts have been made in order to bring the foreign language teaching in our schools close to the ones in the European Union member countries. In this study, relying on the multilingual policies of the European Union, the improvements in the foreign language courses in Turkey are scrutinized. In this context, the official articles, the structural organizations, and the foreign language teaching methods are examined and the possible problems of these factors not cohesive to the accommodation process for the European Union membership. Besides, in this article on teaching German as a foreign language, some recommendations are made about these problems.
