Özet

The purpose of this study can be listed as describing a Turkish version of the Oral Communication Strategy Inventory (OCSI) developed by Nakatani (2006), obtaining evidence of the internal consistency reliabilities of OCSI, and providing evidence for the validity of OCSI in Turkish culture through the use of the factor analysis. The participants in this study were 823 Turkish students learning English as a foreign language, studying at high schools and universities in Mersin, Adana, and Hatay in Turkey. The results of the study indicated that OCSI is not a valid and reliable tool in Turkish culture. These results suggested that a listening strategy inventory can be developed to understand listening strategy preferences of Turkish students considering cultural differences.
