Abstract


The aim of this research is to observe the effect of language teaching methods on students’ TEOG foreign language exams, the exam which is necessary to pass from secondary school to high school, administered by the Ministry of Education. The research sample consisted of 95 English teachers who taught in secondary schools in Duzce in 2013-2014, and the average scores of 8th grades students’ TEOG English exams. It was conducted using the survey method and quantitative data were used. A language teaching methods scale developed by the researcher was implemented to define which methods English teachers use. It was found that there was a meaningful and positive relationship between methods and success. Also, there was a statistically significant difference in students’ TEOG foreign language exam scores, depending on the language teaching method used by English teachers.
