Abstract

People can use their self-efficacy beliefs in any area they need. Professional, cultural, educational areas, and sports activities are a few of them. One of the areas where self-efficacy is used is language learning. There is a mutually supportive relationship between language skills and self-efficacy. Similarly, speaking self-efficacy and writing self-efficacy may affect each other. Productive language self-efficacy is a kind of self-efficacy related to speaking and writing skills, which are the expressive aspects of language. This study investigates the level of speaking self-efficacy and writing self-efficacy of students learning Turkish as a foreign language. The research is a survey study, one of the quantitative research methods. The research group consists of 41 students at the B2 Turkish level at Sakarya University TÖMER. The research results show that the learners' speaking self-efficacy and writing self-efficacy are above average but not high.

The country from which the student with the highest speaking self-efficacy average comes is Chad, the native language of the student with the highest speaking self-efficacy average is French, the country from whom the learners with the highest writing self-efficacy average come is Palestine, and the native language of the learners with the highest writing self-efficacy average is Urdu.
