Reflecting on teachers’ feedback and students’ responses, the study investigated students’ challenges in conducting academic writing, their preferences, and attitudes toward feedback, and teachers’ strategies to handle feedback on students’ written works. A case study was administrated. Three teachers and twenty-six undergraduate students were involved in the study. The findings demonstrated that the students were challenged in terms of grammar/surface structures, content, organization, vocabulary, and mechanism. Then, the teachers practiced various feedback i.e.; correction without comment, comment without correction, correction with comments, suggestion, and identification errors. Furthermore, in language use, the teachers’ preferences varied namely Indonesia/L1, English/EFL, and a combination between L1 and EFL. Students preferred those various teachers’ feedback. Then, the students’ attitudes toward handling feedback varied depending on every teacher's feedback type. Furthermore, the study unveiled that students responded positively to their teachers’ feedback such as requesting a more thorough explanation from their teachers, reading earlier pertinent research to improve their writing, and requiring some reflection time in response to their teachers' revisions.

This study aims to determine the quality of idiom translation and identify strategies applied by the translator in translating English idiomatic expressions into Indonesian in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne, J.K. Rowling, and John Tiffany. In achieving these goals, this research uses mixed-method approaches. It is analyzed based on the Translation Quality Assessment (TQA) model by Nababan et al.

The research finding showed that the translator applies five idiom translation strategies in 70 data. Based on the frequency, the idiom translation strategies are translation by paraphrase (58.6%), literal translation (27.1%), using the idiom with similar meaning but the dissimilar form (8.6%), using an idiom with similar meaning and form (4.3%), and translation by the omission of play of idiom (1.4%). Meanwhile, the average score for the accuracy of the translation is 2.8. The average score for the acceptability of the translation is 2,8, and the average score for readability is 2.8. Overall, the average score of the English idiom translation quality in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child books is 2,8, which indicates that the translation has good quality, in other words, most of the translation is accurate, acceptable, and easily understood by the target readers

Abstract

This study aimed to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of visual language on building and sustaining a strong brand in the mini-market industry. Qualitative research has shown that visual language can have a powerful impact on consumer behavior and purchasing decisions. For example, the choice of colors, images, and symbols can evoke specific emotions and associations, influencing how consumers perceive and interact with the brand. This, in turn can impact brand loyalty, as consumers are more likely to return to brands that they perceive as being trustworthy and consistent. The use of visual language in branding is particularly important for mini markets, as these businesses compete in a crowded and highly competitive industry. By using visual language to create a strong brand image and establish brand associations, mini-markets can differentiate themselves from competitors, build a loyal customer base, and establish a strong reputation in the marketplace.
