Bu çalışmanın amacı, 9. sınıf İngilizceyi yabancı dil olarak öğrenen öğrenciler ile öğretmenlerin İngilizce sınıflarında drama kullanımına olan tutumlarını bulmaktır.  Bu çalışma, dil yetilerinin öğretilmesinde dramanın değerinin yansıtıcı ve özgürleştirici bir araç olarak gösterilmesinde anahtar olacaktır. Ayrıca, İstanbul-Türkiye’deki K-12 okulunda İngilizce derslerinde drama teknikleri uygulanarak, öğrencilerin konuşma becerileri ve konuşmaya karşı tutumları pozitif olarak geliştirilecektir. Bu çalışma, sıcak-oturma, dondurma, kelime oyunları, stratejik etkileşim ve rol oyunları gibi teknikleri kullanarak dil kapasitelerini arttıracak destekleyici bir öğretim metoduna öğrencileri yakınlaştırmayı hedeflemektedir. Çalışmanın bulguları, B1 ve A2 seviyesindeki yabancı dil olarak İngilizce öğrenen Türk öğrencilerinin drama aracılığıyla alternatif öğrenme teknikleri keşfettiklerini ve İngilizce derslerine karşı pozitif tutum geliştirdiklerini göstermektedir.  

The purpose of this study is to examine 9th grade students and EFL professionals’ attitudes towards the use of drama in English classes. This study can be a fundamental key for representing the value of using drama in improving the language skills of the learners as a tool to promote reflective and emancipative language learning. Moreover, drama may enhance students’ oral language proficiency and their attitude in a positive way by implementing drama techniques within an accelerated framework at a foundation (private) K-12 School in Istanbul, Turkey. This qualitative study is intended to familiarize students with a number of drama techniques, such as hot-seating, frozen frames, verbal games, strategic interaction and role play through drama for cultivating language competence process as a supplementary teaching methodology. The findings of the study indicated that B1 and A2 Turkish EFL students have gained the ability to explore new alternative learning techniques such as drama and positive attitude in English classrooms.
