Abstract

The privilege of English as an international lingua franca force many countries to open a wider opportunity for society to learn the language. However, the unbalance between societal needs and the role of English as a foreign language in Indonesia sometimes find the obstacles in the process of learning. This paper reveals the learners’ initial perception of English and analyzes the need for participation in an English immersion program. 24 participants from six English institutions contributed to this qualitative study. The data collected through participant observation and semi-structured interviews for three months in Kampung Inggris Pare, Kediri, East Java, Indonesia. Most of the learners had a negative perception of English before participating in this immersion program that they perceived this language was difficult. This perception is associated with negative experiences during the process of learning English at school. However, their awareness of low self-confidence and poor speaking performance in facing globalization invited them to participate in an English immersion village in Kampung Inggris Pare. This paper concludes that the necessities, the lacks, and students' desire underlie the need analysis of participating in an English immersion program in Kampung Inggris Pare.

Abstract

Vocabulary is the heart of a language because it involves the basic building of English sentences. Without a meaningful vocabulary, the four basic skills of language namely speaking, listening, reading, and writing would never be complete. As vocabulary is the principal issue for English learning, this current research was conducted to see the effectiveness of the Board Race Game to improve the students’ mastery of vocabulary. The research was conducted in Tsanawiyah Babul Khaer, Bulukumba. There were 30 students of the second grade in the academic year 2018/2019 who participated in this study which was selected through purposive sampling. In collecting the data, the researchers used the pre and post design of the experimental group. The researchers analyzed the average score of each test to find out the increase in students’ vocabulary mastery after the action was conducted. After the researchers have treated the game in four meetings, the students’ vocabulary mastery has increased significantly. It could be seen from the score of pre-test was 30,46 and the posttest was 78,2 where the gain of both tests was 47,73. After applying the action, the researchers were able to solve the problem in increasing students’ vocabulary mastery. Thus, because of this kinesthetic game was successfully to create a fun atmosphere in the teaching and learning process and increase the students’ mastery of vocabulary, it is suggested to use board race game as the alternative media in teaching English.

Abstract

Behind the problems faced in the implementation of teaching English in schools, on the contrary, learning activities in Kampung Inggris Pare are reported as having exciting and enjoyable in terms of topics and exercises they do in the classroom. The teaching methods are varied, broad, and challenging. The variation of the topics avoids boredom in the learning. Therefore, this study investigated the teaching methods conducted in this immersive environment. This qualitative study was conducted in Peace, Kampung Inggris Pare, Kediri, East Java, Indonesia. Six participants participated in this study. The data were collected through observations, interviews, documents, and visual photos. The data shows that, in teaching speaking, tutors in English Village Pare utilize a variety of media and integrated language skills, for example, by using visual media in the form of images. Five phases will be trained to achieve communicative goals in language learning, namely: pay attention to the pictures to store the concept in mind, construct the ideas about the photos (perception), regulate the way to express the ideas (mind mapping), speak up (describing the picture or anything to talk), communicative comprehension (speaking and listening session as a speaker or listener), and after review and practice the phases or activities many times, the students finally will reach the speaking fluency (ignoring filler and stuck), respect to the time, and communicative skills. This method can lead students to become successful language learners

Abstract

English is the unifying international language of world communication. However, English-speaking countries face many problems in their position as a foreign language, so learning strategies and motivation must be emphasized in the learning process. On the other side, communication skills are the most needed skills to prepare for the world of work. Thus, this research with a qualitative method approach is focused on investigating the effectiveness of teaching and training on "Neurocognitive" based learning strategies, with continuous mentoring and injection of motivation. The instruments used are field note observations, questionnaires, interviews, and photo documentation. The subjects of this study were 14 students in the second semester of the 2020/2021 academic year of the Information Systems study program at STMIK Bina Adinata. The results showed that the students' cognitive and non-cognitive skills were improved, especially their speaking performance. However, even though the research team carried out the procedure for providing learning strategy training under the correct stages, the results obtained were less than optimal due to online learning conditions. So it is recommended for further researchers to continue this research by thinking about learning strategies that can be combined for offline and online needs.

Abstract

When we agree with the internalization of a foreign language acquisition centered in the classroom, teacher talk plays the most important role to achieve the success of teaching and learning. However, a high intensity of teacher talk and the hesitation of instructional language choice become two common problems are usually faced. Therefore, it seems important to present a variety of literature reviews to be considered by teachers which may be used as the reference to solve the problem. This study presented the concept of teacher talk at classroom interaction, monolingual and bilingual approach in EFL classroom and some previous research findings “the rationales for supporting bilingual approach” which were gained from some articles. This study suggests that teachers have to control the quantity and quality of their talk to gain an effective teaching and learning process in the EFL classroom. It is more advantageous to reduce Teacher Talk Time and increase Student Talk Time based on the students’ need because too much teacher talk will have an impact on decreased student learning motivation. When teaching EFL students, it will be helpful for overcoming cognitive difficulties if teachers insert mother tongue for the certain condition such as to translate difficult words from reading the text and to explain grammar. However, the teachers have to keep a principled and judicious use of mother tongue because a very high proportion of it also limits the students’ achievement. If the students are exposed more to the second language, they will become more successful

Abstract

Di zaman yang semakin maju, keterampilan berbahasa Inggris menjadi modal dasar untuk dapat tampil dalam kancah Internasional. Akan tetapi, Bahasa Inggris kemudian berkembang menjadi bahasa asing di Indonesia yang mengakibatkan sulitnya dijumpai masyarakat dan komunitas yang berinteraksi menggunakan Bahasa ini. Akibat yang paling dirasakan adalah masalah yang dihadapi dalam implementasi proses belajar di sekolah sehingga belajar bahasa Inggris di sekolah formal dirasakan tidaklah cukup. Berdasarkan permasalah tersebut, membentuk komunitas atau klub Bahasa Inggris adalah solusi terbaik yang dapat ditawarkan. Mitra dari kegiatan ini adalah SMPN 30 yang beralamat di Kompleks Bumi Tamalanrea Permai, Makassar. Sekolah ini ingin menjadikan Bahasa Inggris sebagai bahasa keseharian di Sekolah dalam upaya mendukung “Smart class”. Akan tetapi, hal itu belum terealisasi sejak 2016. Olehnya, sekolah ini membutuhkan mitra yang dapat membantu mereka untuk merealisasikan rencana yang baik tersebut, dimana perintisan klub belajar Bahasa Inggris dan pendampingan program kerja kami tawarkan sebagai pondasi dan langkah awal untuk mencapai tujuan tersebut. Klub Bahasa Inggris ini merupakan sebuah komunitas yang anggotanya memiliki interest/ ketertarikan yang sama. Tentunya, mereka yang berada dalam komunitas ini akan saling memotivasi untuk mencapai tujuan bersama. Ada beberapa kegiatan yang didesain dalam dalam pengabdian ini, namun tidak semuanya berhasil dilaksanakan dikarenakan kondisi pandemi covid 19 yang masih  berlangsung. Beberapa kegiatan yang dilaksanakan berupa Regular English Meeting (internal), English meeting English in Collaboration, English Camp/ Village, dan seminar/ webinar. English Club memberikan kontribusi terhadap peningkatan hard dan soft skill, seperti membangun kepercayaan diri, meningkatkan kemampuan pengucapan dan kefasihan berbicara, mengorganisasi ide dengan cepat, membangun pemikiran kritis, berpikiran terbuka, meningkat kreativitas, dan meningkatkan pengetahuan umum.
