USING THE COOPERATIVE LEARNING FOR TEACHING IDIOMS ON FRENCH FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDENTS

Zühre Yılmaz Güngör

Abstract


The objective of this study is to detect the effect of using cooperative learning for teaching idioms to first grade students, learning French as a foreign language. The study was carried out on two groups – experimental group and control group – during the academic year of 2017-2018 in the lesson “Reading in French”. The lesson was taught using traditional teaching methods with the control group, while using Jigsaw-II technique with the experimental group. According to the findings obtained from this research, the experimental group students, on whom the Jigsaw-II technique was applied, became more successful within the scope of learning idioms in French language.
