The Role of Maps in Teaching Foreign Languages

Sibel Boray Elliot
Abstract—What kind of relationship can political and geographical maps have in the teaching of a foreign language? How is it possible to teach languages to young people who normally have little contact with maps or awareness of the location of states on a world map? What new methods can philology professors adopt when teaching a highly challenging language with striking differences to their mother tongue? This study is focused on the new methods that can be applied by philology professors in order to teach languages in a much more interesting and interactive way, with a high level of student participation even when they have a very basic knowledge of the new language that they are seeking to learn.

Index Terms—Language, maps, new methods, students learn quickly.
