Abstract

In the present study, the presence of a correlation between the communication skills and the speech self-efficacy of pre-service Turkish teachers was investigated. Associational survey model was adopted in the research. Research data were collected with two instruments which aimed to measure the communication skills and speech self-efficacy levels of junior students attending the Turkish Language Education departments of five universities in different regions in Turkey. The study findings demonstrated that there were moderate and large positive significant correlations between the speech self-efficacy perceptions (SSES) and communication skills (CSS) of pre-service Turkish teachers based on total scores and the subscale scores. Based on the findings it was recommended that pre-service teachers should be provided with more opportunities to develop their speech skills to ensure their command in active and healthy communications in the educational processes.

Keywords: Communication skills, pre-service Turkish language teachers, speech self-efficacy.
