Bu çalışmanın amacını, sözcük geliştirme aktivitelerinin iki grup öğrenci arasında genel dil seviyeleri bakımından bir farklılık yaratıp yaratmadığının belirlenmesi oluşturmaktadır. Kontrol grubunda yer alan öğrenciler ek bir kelime çalışmasının yapılmadığı İngilizcede en sık kullanılan ikinci bin sözcüğü içeren normal müfredatı takip ederken, deney grubundaki öğrenciler ise İngilizcede en sık kullanılan ikinci bin sözcüğü içeren sözcük geliştirme aktivitelerinin normal müfredata entegre edildiği on dört haftalık programı izlemişlerdir. Bu araştırmanın çalışma grubunu, Yalova ilinde bir meslek yüksek okulunda 2010–2011 eğitim-öğretim yılında ikinci sınıfta öğrenim gören 88 erkek öğrenci oluşturmuştur. Bu çalışmada, Cambridge Hızlı Seviye Belirleme Testinin birinci versiyonu veri toplama aracı olarak kullanılmıştır. Uygulamanın ardından, deney grubu ile kontrol grubu arasında, genel dil seviyeleri açısından deney grubu lehine anlamlı bir fark oluşmuştur.

Anahtar kelimeler


Genel dil seviyesi, Sözcük geliştirme aktiviteleri, Sözcük öğretimi.
