Abstract: This research study used a relational model in order to both determine comprehension competence and grammar achievements of those who learn Turkish as a foreign language in Turkey and to find out the relations between them. B2 level learners of Turkish as a foreign language from the universities of Marmara, Gazi, Mersin, Fırat, Uşak, and Nevşehir participated in this research study. Reading and listening comprehension and grammar achievement tests, developed by the researchers, were used as data collection tools. KR20 reliability coefficients of the grammar, listening and reading comprehension tests were found as 0,88, 0,94, 0,91. These data indicate that achievement tests are highly reliable. According to the acquired data, it was found that the students were generally successful; there was a moderate level of positive correlation between listening-reading comprehension achievements and grammar-listening comprehension achievements; there was a high level of positive correlation between grammar- reading comprehension achievements.
