The aim of this study is to develop speech and interaction based speech materials in order to contribute to the development of speech skills of language learners in teaching Turkish as a foreign language. The tasks are prepared for the A1-A2 levels, which are the levels where the pronunciation teaching process is carried out intensively. The sounds to be studied which are often the problems of language learners, are the vowels of e, ı, i, o, ö, u, ü; ğ grapheme and the consonants of ç, c, s, ş. Task-based approach, which adopts principles such as associating with other language skills, intelligibility, providing efficient support to language teachers, is based on cognitive process and prioritizes communicative language. The course materials developed by the authors who have experience in teaching Turkish as a foreign language were presented to the evaluation of 4 field experts and 2 peers. In line with the feedback received, the course materials were finalized and suggestions were made to the language teachers for the implementation of the tasks.
