Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine how dialogues among students exhibit negative behaviours towards their friends in classroom or school and their family members. In this study, observation and interview methods were used to gather required data. To determine how students exhibit negative behaviours in classroom or school in having dialogues with their classmates, unstructured observation method, and also for determining the level of the dialogues with their family members semi- structured interviews were used to gather data from the students. The study group consisted of 32 secondary schools and 68 secondary school students studying in these schools situated in Van province in 2015-2016 academic year. The data acquired from the students' observations and interviews were analysed using content analysis method. The study results showed that generally the economic situations of the students are at middle and poor levels; the fathers are workers, mothers are housewives, living in an elementary family; the level of their dialogues with family members are not at a desired level due to high frequency of such expressions as “sometimes I am beaten up, my dialogue with my mother is good, but not with my father, my dialogue with my brother/sister/older brother/older sister is not good, I am on bad terms with all family members.” Students’ dialogues with their classmates are problematic, and using an abusive and slang language, these students usually have dialogues with those alike in nature and tease female students.
