Using literature to teach language has several advantages such as contributing to a better linguistic understanding, a development of creative skills, an authentic model of language use with its rich potential (Ramsaran 1983; Collie & Slater, 1987). Short story seems to be the most suitable one since it is short, and aims at giving a 'single effect', there is usually one plot, a few characters; there is no detailed description of setting. Also, research on short stories in EFL classrooms state that they can be a good indicator of increased motivation, increased interest in reading and improved reading skills (Vural 2013; Saka, 2014; . . . Pardede, 2011). This study aims to find out the thoughts and attitudes of the first year students in Bulent Ecevit University English Language and Literature Department towards the short stories covered in Reading Skills course in 2015-2016 fall term. The data gathered via a questionnaire was analyzed using frequency tests. The results indicated that studying short stories has a number of benefits for the students such as broadening their perspectives, enabling them to think about the reasons rather than the result, showing them different life styles, providing them with a comparison between their own culture and other cultures, increasing their appreciation for literature and making them read more short stories.

The aim of this study was to explore the collegial reactions of teachers to faulty pronunciation in relation to English language teaching. Some vowel and consonant sounds of English language are problematic for Turkish English teachers because they do not exist in Turkish inventory of sounds. The pronunciation of these English sounds usually results in fossilized mistakes for the Turkish teachers of English and teacher trainees. In this respect, a questionnaire with 21 items and three subheadings, 'reactions in terms of profession-wise', 'professional efficiency of non-native teachers' and 'reactions in terms of collegial friendship . . .', was developed by the researchers of this research. The data were collected from 30 Turkish teachers of English who worked at different state universities in Turkey via a five-point Likert scale and were analyzed through Independent Samples T-test and ANOVA. The results demonstrated that while most teachers support their colleagues in regard to professional efficiency of non-native teachers and collegial friendship, only a small percentage of the teachers support their colleagues in respect to professional-wise.
