CEZAYİRLİ TÜRKOLOJİ ÖĞRENCİLERİNİN TÜRK KÜLTÜRÜNE YÖNELİK FARKINDALIKLARI
This study aims to determine the cultural awareness of pre-service Turkish language teachers studying at departments of Turcology in Algeria. The participants of the study include Turcology students who continue their education at the University of Algiers 2 and Emir Abd Elkader University for Islamic Sciences. A questionnaire based on knowledge of material culture was designed for the purpose of determining students' awareness of Turkish culture. Descriptive analysis and content analysis were applied to the data obtained from 73 students using a semi-structured form with open-ended questions. Accordingly, it has been revealed that the students were familiar with Turkish culture but that the teachers' presentation of the Turkish language and culture was insufficient. In addition to it was determined that the students learned more about Turkish culture from series and films. Through the responses of students, it has been concluded that the teachers should be provided with teacher training programmes.
