Sevgili Murat: An Instructional Film in Modern Turkish
Medium: DVD
Item #: LS003
Price: $30.00

A 2-DVD set called Sevgili Murat consists of the main story line edited together without any instructional components such as subtitles, exercises, etc. This film gives students of Turkish a chance to listen to and observe a variety of communicative situations in a natural setting, while at the same time seeing and hearing images and sounds of life in Turkey.

To facilitate using this film for classroom use, it is accompanied by an on-line scene list which can be downloaded from nmelrc.org, presenting linguistic features of the individual scenes, an overview of topics and situations featured in the film. This provides an outline to help professors use the video in class so they can manipulate it for their own purposes. The list outlines key items which either illustrate linguistic features or the contents of a scene. Various situations, like “greeting,” “thanking,” “leaving,” “ordering,” and “arranging a meeting” are repeated throughout the film, as are topics like “numbers,” “work,” and “family. These repetitions allow for this group of scenes to be used independently from the film story, as models to teach basic situations and topics.
