DEDAM is the language research and teaching center by Dokuz Eylul University. Its objective is to teach not only Turkish but also other foreign languages in a modern and authentic way in technologically equipped classrooms.
DEDAM aims to be acknowledged both nationally and internationally as a center at which Turkish and other modern languages are taught and the language studies are conducted. This language institute faces the cultural policy challenges of globalisation and develops innovative concepts for a world made more human through mutual understanding, where cultural diversity is seen as an asset.
The Turkish courses are made up of five levels: A1, A2 (elementary); B1, B2 (intermediate) and C1 (advanced). The learners enrolled in the program are first given a placement test.
At DEDAM, the language program involves courses which targets to improve four language skills (i.e. listening, reading, writing and speaking), which contributes to intercultural communication.
DEDAM also offers extra curricular activities such as daily excursions, film shows and critical reading activities in order to familiarize students with the target culture.
When the students have completed the course, they will be given a certificate for the successful completion of the level of the course they have attended.
