The aim of this study is to examine skills of eighth grade students’ use of mathematical language in the field of algebra learning. The research was structured as a case study of qualitative research methods. The study group consist of eighth grade students studying in one of the public schools in Keçiören, Ankara. The data was obtained through clinical interviews. As a data collection tool, a 23-item test was determined in the area of algebra learning, which includes questions about the determined branches of mathematical language. The data collection tool prepared for the determined branches of mathematical language in algebra is composed of the help of the tests carried out in this field, the field scanning and the questions that the researcher herself has prepared. Content analysis, which is one of the qualitative analysis methods, was used for data analysis. When the obtained data is examined, it was found that the mathematical language usage of the students in the field of algebra learning was not sufficient. Some of the most difficult questions for students to answer were the ones that required using tables and graphics, while the easiest questions for students to answer were related to translating a verbal situation into written language. It is thought that activities to use mathematical language in mathematics classes will contribute to the development of students' language skills.
