Language Policy

At Acarkent Doğa Anadolu Lisesi each teacher becomes responsible for bringing the policy to life under his or her own terms. Language teaching is an ongoing educational process. We are convinced that language and subject teaching should not be considered in isolation. So we believe ,all teachers are language teachers as language transcends curriculum areas. Our teachers have a responsibility to promote literacy. Moreover, not only are all teachers language teachers, they are also policy makers.

We always keep in mind that moving from language policy development to implementation requires a process by which teachers must first develop awareness and build knowledge of the LP in order to successfully implement it in their classrooms. We know that the development of language is a key to  communicate. Fundamental purpose for teaching and learning languages in our school is  to provide development of the international understanding and the acceptance and celebration of linguistic and cultural diversity. In our school the role of language is valued as central to developing critical thinking,which is essential for the cultivation of intercultural awareness, international-mindedness and global citizenship .Language is linked to empowerment through success in school and subsequently society.

Our  Language Philosophy provides all students ;

  • to use their mother tongue correctly and express themselves in oral and written form,
  • improving English skills as a second language,

  • the language skills that can follow the ever-changing and renewed knowledge and technology as a world citizen,
