Author(s): Mustafa TEK?N

This paper presents qualitative and quantitative results of an evaluation of the English Language Teaching (ELT) and English Language and Literature (ELL) preparatory classes of a state university in Turkey. This study basically aims to gather data for an illuminative evaluation of the prep classes program for the purpose of highlighting certain dimensions of the current program as a first step to make the necessary changes. In this respect, 106 preparatory class students and two lecturers participated in the study. To get more reliable results, the data were triangulated with qualitative and quantitative means. The results revealed that the majority of the participants were satisfied with the present program and its components except for physical conditions. Additionally, the lecturers reported the need for a new program that should aim to help students gain more communicative skills. All in all, the analysis of the data collected in the present study revealed that although the majority of the participants are pleased with the existing program, there is still need for a change, especially in terms of the physical conditions.
