Learners of Turkish indicates that they feel uneasy with lexical and morphological aspects of Turkish as well as syntax of it. This study does not go beyond the linguistic concept but uses ACTFL (American Council on Teaching of Foreign Language) guideline to show instructors of TAFL how to reduce anxiety on learners by addressing levels and needs of learners appropriately. The study uses theoretical perspective of ACTFL for speaking skill and provides samples accordingly.
