It seems that philologies function as the centers for teaching foreign language from the angle of society. Although this kind of idea is not totally true, some problems in practice take attention. Theoretical knowledge is given in the linguistics and literature classes, but analytical and critical suggestions are rarely made in the lectures. This situation creates a contradiction between the students and the transfer of scientific idea and knowledge. If the lessons are not student-centered they will not motivate students. Shortly, the relation between theory and practice should take its place in teaching.
For making students think critically in literature and linguistics classes, from the respect of method and content, the subjects in the lessons should be questioned and discussed. But historical prejudices belonging to cultures should not be evaluated radically. Turkish Germanistics should be shaped in the respect of theory and content by thinking globally but not violating the essential principles of germanistics.
