Special skills, abilities and knowledge, necessary for professional growth and/or education in a foreign academic environment can be developed by means of foreign language learning. English language training in the context of academic mobility development should be based on high educational quality; advanced level of English demonstrated by students and academics; their informational, social and cultural preadaptation. The aim of the research is to apply this concept in practice and make Turkey more attractive for academics and students from other countries. The main result of the research will be the creation of the coursebook ‘Study, Teach and Research in Turkey. English for Academic Mobility’ for Intermediate/Upper-Intermediate learners, including Students’ Book, Teachers’ Book, DVD with audio and video material. The course development involves several stages. The course can be useful for university students and academics and language courses in Turkey and abroad.
