Towards an Understanding of Prospective EFL Teachers’ Beliefs about and Knowledge of L2 Oral Communication: A Sample from Turkey

Dr. Murat Hismanoglu

In this study, we aimed to identify prospective EFL teachers’ beliefs about and knowledge of L2 oral communication, explore the impact of L2 oral communication courses on the beliefs and reflect upon future L2 communication practices. The participants of the current research comprised of one course tutor and ninety-four prospective EFL teachers. Data was gathered via one questionnaire including three sections. The findings depicted that prospective EFL teachers had positive beliefs about L2 oral communication and benefited from the course . Some implications of the study for language teacher education were also discussed under the available concurrent literature.
