Learning via Subtitling (LvS) in the Turkish Language Classroom

Students in Dr. Jeannette Okur’s spring 2019 Turkish Cinema course put their language skills to ‘real world’ use in the world of fan subbing!  As part of a research project on the efficacy of Learning via Subtitling (LvS) in the mixed-level (Intermediate High-Advanced Mid) Turkish language classroom, Dr. Okur taught her students to use collaborative Google Docs and Aegisub Advanced Subtitling Editor software to create and add original English subtitles to three classic Turkish films.  Join us for the premiere screening of the third of these student-subtitled films, the acclaimed Yeşilçam melodrama, Sultan (Dir. Kartal Tibet, 1978)!  A reflective Q&A session with Turkish Cinema students and Dr. Okur will follow the screening.
