Abstract

In academic writing such as a thesis proposal, a learner should consider several variables. Not only does a learner consider the language uses such as choice of words and syntactic forms at the sentence level, but beyond the sentence, a learner should also pay attention to the organization and unity of all the ideas and information into cohesive and coherent paragraphs. However, many students encounter great difficulties in writing their proposals especially the introduction part which deals with the organization of paragraphs. For this reason, the writer analyzed the undergraduate students’ competence in thesis proposal writings. The organization of the ideas and information becomes a necessary part of writing thesis proposal because of it into cohesive and coherent paragraphs. However, many students often get difficulties, especially in the introduction part. This article is the study of the proposal writings which covers the organization, the unity and coherence of paragraphs, and the syntactic form and word choice. The subjects of this research were the students of the English Language Education Program at a private university in Yogyakarta, Indonesia who were writing their theses as their final project. All data sources were from the undergraduate students' initial thesis writings especially the Introduction part proposed by the students. The samples of data were taken according to the proportional sampling referring to the research fields in which the students were interested: English Language Teaching 50%, Linguistics 30%, and Literature 20%.  The result of the analysis shows that: (a) Mostly the students’ proposals addressed well organization though using somewhat developed explanations, exemplifications, or details; (b) They also displayed unity and coherence, though the connection of ideas was occasionally obscured; Considering the organization, unity and coherence are the most appropriate variety for the undergraduate students’ writing; therefore, the study suggests that more exposure to the standard guidance or rubric of thesis writing will be helpful.

Abstract

The present study contextualizes critical discourse analysis on Singapore Airlines Premium Economy Class Advertisement to uncover the discrepancies behind their advertisement. Airline Advertisement is intended to attract prospective customers. Singapore Airlines as one of the biggest airline companies in the world is without exception. Singapore Airlines proposes an advertisement which locates their brand as a low-cost airline to attract potential customers in which affordability and comfortability are their selling points. Their advertisement is marketed through glamorous and convincing advertisements as a find a way to attract more passengers. Yet most people do not realize the “hidden” agenda behind those advertisements. Through critical discourse analysis, one can uncover the signs and interrogate the message which lies behind the advertisement. An advertisement is inseparable with their connotation towards certain ideology and meaning behind the “curtain” which manifest through the word choices, images, symbols, and the colors represented there. This paper seeks to unwrap the “not-so-white-lie” represented in Singapore Airlines’ Premium Economy Class Advertisement through critical discourse analysis and Baudrillard’s four stages of signs.

Abstract

Language cannot be separated from culture, so if we teach a language, we also need to correlate it with culture. It implies that to teach language means to also teach the culture. Since English now belongs to the world as lingua franca, used by different nationalities, the number of students who learn English increases around the world. The increase of students who learn English in countries with various ethnicities makes multicultural education in the 21st century. This phenomenon happens especially in a diverse country such as Indonesia that has thousands of ethnicities, languages, religions, and cultures. Language and religious diversity are also increasing among the nation’s student population (Dilg, 2003). ln an EFL country such as Indonesia, teaching cross-cultural understanding (CCU) is extremely needed in order to understand the language taught. This paper will discuss the use of CCU in English classrooms, especially in Indonesia.
