The purpose of this study is to determine learners’ and instructors’ perceptions about technology-enhanced learning environment. This study uses both quantitative and qualitative methods. A Likert-scale survey was developed and administered to 48 Turkish language learners in various language courses in Istanbul to investigate their perceptions of using technology. Additionally, qualitative interview questions were used to investigate three Turkish instructors’ perceptions about teaching with technology. Results showed that learners and instructors were comfortable with their learning Turkish using technologies and they can be used to enhance Turkish learning and teaching processes. 

Key words: Learning environments, mixed method, technology-enhanced Turkish language.
