My experience with the deep modules was unique and helpful.

In no other foreign language class had I ever encountered such an in depth yet easy to operate system for language learning. It helped to augment my speaking and listening far greater than any other program I had tried previously. I also appreciated the cultural aspects included, as it's hard to get an understanding of a different country's culture when living oversees. I really liked how they incorporated the most important aspects of the culture. Often, when learning from a textbook, the things you learn are that which are important to an American as opposed to what a native speaker would consider important. The modules made for a more earnest and deep learning experience because of their cultural insights.  My favorite module was "Kadınlar" because I find the topic of women in Turkey to be fascinating. People are easy to dismiss Turkey as a supremely patriarchal society and thus repressive towards its' women, so learning more about the way things -actually- are, is extremely interesting. A friend of mine and I made a power point with recorded conversation. We both learned a lot of vocabulary as our conversation centered around a specific place and topic. Sure, it was about ice cream, but that's important to me. Apart from the aforementioned vocabulary acquisition, it helped me get an idea of the normal pace of a conversation. Speaking and learning the emphasis on words helps to know what is being said, as opposed to just hearing one long sentence and interpreting it as gibberish.

DEEP UNIVERSITY

The deep approach is about mindset and embodied action. It is about persons, humans, in the dynamics of living. It is something people want to live and work for. It is never fully achieved, it is always in the making, and depends upon situations.
