THE DİSTİRİBUTİON OF PROVERBS AND İDİOMS İN READİNG TEXT BOOKS USED FOR TEACHİNG TURKİSH AS A FOREİGN LANGUAGE: THE SAMPLE OF YEDİ İKLİM


Frequency studies are one of the important issues to be emphasized in teaching Turkish as a foreign language. In the Turkish Dictionary, frequency refers to "beingf requent, frequent, frequentuse". Frequency analysis studies are needed when determining which words should be taught in foreign language teaching. In orderfor a healthy language teaching to be realized, the words targeted to be taught must be identified. Teaching mistakes, such as randomization of targetwords, ignoring suitability of levels, and attempting to teach all the words on the ground will make language teaching difficult. Proverbs and idiom stake an importantplace in textbooks used to teach Turkish to foreigners. It is possible that we can encounter almost all the texts used in the books. This is due to the importance of culture transfer in language teaching. Language teaching can not be considered apart from cultural teaching. In the text boks prepared, there are various problems related to teaching idioms and proverbs. The main reason for these problems is that there is nomeasure about the extent to which the proverb and phrases should be used in language teaching and which idiom and proverb must be taught at which level. For this reason, word frequency studies are important. In order to determine the frequencies of the idioms andproverbs in the survey, the Yedi İklim Türkçe Öğretim Seti, prepared by the Yunus Emre Institute, has been examined. The idioms and proverbs used in A1, A2, B1, B2 and C1 text boks have been determined using texts can ningmethods and are shown on tables. In addition, the idiom and proverbial practices in the materials were expressed in the form of examples and related evaluations were made regarding compliance with TDK.
