The present study aims to introduce a number of communicative activities/tasks (group work and pair work, drama, improvisation, role-playing, simulation, problem solving, communication games) used in Turkish Language classes of Adult Education Program (AEP) offered by the University of Cyprus Language Center (LC-UCY). The communicative activities/tasks were designed in accordance to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR), to be used in beginners to intermediate level classes. The main aim of using these activities/tasks was to develop and improve speaking skills not only inside the classroom but also outside. Synchronous and asynchronous learning environments were implemented which encouraged the collaboration between student-student and studentsteacher/tutor. A rationale and a description of how these activities were integrated into Turkish courses and how they achieved the stated aims and objectives will be discussed together with the linguistic theories. Suggestions and recommendations are also mentioned.
