FRENCH LANGUAGE EDUCATION STUDENTS’ VIEWS ON TRANSLATION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING


Although there are many studies on the use of translation in foreign language education in Turkey as well as in the world, studies on determination of the role of translation from the perspective of individuals who learn a foreign language remain inadequate. This determination of researchers about the effect of learners perceptions on learning conditions, prepare a ground of research about the effect level of translation viewpoints in foreign language training. This study aimed to find answers to questions such as whether translation plays a positive role among Turkish university students learning French as a foreign language, at what level is the relation of the learners' learning level with perceptions about the use of translation. An inventory (ÇEBAÖ-Çeviriye Bakış Açısı Ölçeği) which we have adapted to Turkish is applied to 136 students studying in the French Language Education Departments of Hacettepe, Gazi and Marmara Universities in 2017-2018. We have searched and discussed whether there is a statistically significant difference between the variables such as gender, class, level of success. The data subjected to descriptive and comparative statistical procedures revealed that the majority of these students see the use of translation useful and necessary in foreign language education. With the findings obtained, the importance of redesign the translation lessons to serve the viewpoints has been emphasized.
