İngilizce öğrenmek! Türklere online dersler
In our İngilizce Dersleri series we use recent news articles relevant to Turkish students to create reading and listening exercises. These video lessons are designed for our Turkish students learning English. They are a supplement to our live online conversation classes. We encourage our students to use these videos to practice their listening and reading skills between conversation classes.
This article was found on the BBC News website in the Science & Environment section on August 1st 2013. You can find a copy of the original article here.
This İngilizce Dersleri video includes intermediate to upper-intermediate text. We recommend the video for our Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate learners. The language in the article is focused on a scientific experiment. The experiment is in the field of human behavior. Basic scientific language is a good vocabulary focus for IELTS. We recommend this exercise for our IELTS students. We also recommend it for anyone working in a research field.

İngilizce Dersleri: article synopsis
The article focused on a recent behavioral study. The article’s findings was recently published in the journal, Current Biology. You can find the results of the experiment here. The study suggests that the biological cycle of humans has been disrupted by our reliance on electric light. The study took 8 volunteers out of their urban habitats and placed them in tents for 8 days. While camping, the volunteers were removed from all unnatural light sources. The study found that by removing the volunteers from electric light, their melatonin levels started to undertake more normal patterns.
In our İngilizce Dersleri series we typically cover subject matters with a Turkish focus. For this lesson we decided to focus on scientific vocabulary. We are sure that many of our Turkish students can relate to working hard under unnatural light conditions!
