Abstract

The objective of this research is to analyze grammar lessons of three Brazilian YouTube Channels of English as a Foreign Language. It compares the approaches applied by each teacher in their videos and investigates if the lessons approach the explanation of meaning, use, and form of the grammar. It also aims to find out if the lessons are hackneyed regarding the online learning environment. The analysis consisted of watching two videos of the YouTube channels English in Brazil, Inglês Compartilhado and Mairo Vergara. The results showed that out of the six videos, five contained a grammar explanation that addressed meaning, use, and form of the language. They also adopted the deductive approach to grammar teaching. Only one video did not explain the grammar (quantifiers), but a trick to memorize the use of quantifiers. As for technology, the main tool teachers used was captions to illustrate example sentences of the grammar. Other tools consisted of the use of the software ‘Notepad’ and animation. Thus, there was not an innovation on the videos regarding technology. Future research is needed to understand if there is the necessity to apply cutting-edge tools to teach on YouTube and if it is mandatory to review and to adapt the pedagogical practices for language learning YouTube videos.

Abstract

This study was set out to investigate the efficacy of homogeneous and heterogeneous pushed output based instruction on upper-intermediate EFL learner’ speaking complexity. To do so, 41 (17 males and 24 females) EFL learners were selected from University of Zabol based on the results of OPT. Then, they were put in control and experimental groups based on the predetermined criteria. Retelling and decision making tasks were used in the treatments of experimental groups while control group received placebo during 15 sessions, twice a week. Public versions of IELTS speaking test were used as pre/post-test. The results of Independent sample t-test indicated that experimental groups outperformed control group. On the other hand, statistical analyses showed no significant differences between male and female speech complexity. To sum up, the findings demonstrated the fruitful effects of collaborative pushed output activities on speaking sub-skills. Likewise, the results suggested the implementation of similar strategies in the development of male and female speaking dimensions. Based on the findings, it can be claimed that teacher preparation programs should put teaching speaking on their list of priorities and provide courses on effective strategies for the development of speaking dimensions through implementing the main tenants of pushed output hypothesis.Keywords: homogeneous, heterogeneous, complexity, speaking, pushed output

Abstract

Anchored on the Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge or TPACK Framework (Koehler Mishra, 2009) and Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition or SAMR Model of Technology Integration into the classroom (Puentedura, 2014), this study investigated a corpus of 58 blog posts written by ESL learners through weblogs. It aimed to determine the views of students on the use of blogs in learning English writing skills and to explore students’ feedback on the advantages of blogging as a virtual writing platform. Research participants were 58 freshman university tourism students enrolled at a Study and Thinking Skills class in a private university in Manila, the Philippines during the first semester of the academic year 2017-2018. Research data drawn from students’ blogs, survey questionnaires and focus group discussion revealed that despite accessibility issues due to technological resources, the learners viewed blogging as a viable platform in learning English writing skills because it affords them freedom to express their thoughts, it develops or improves their writing skills, and it allows them to connect and engage with their peers online, inter alia. Pedagogical implications for ESL writing teachers and researchers are offered based on these results.Keywords: Teaching writing, ESL writing, weblogs, blogging, TPACK, SAMR

Abstract

Writing in a second or foreign language seems to be the most difficult language skill for language learners to acquire (Laksmi, 2006; Lestari, 2008; Negari, 2011). Some scholars proposed the implementation of SFL – genre based approach in teaching writing (Derewianka, 1990; Rothery, 1996). However, SFL genre based approach seems to be product or teaching outcomes oriented (Ahn, 2012; Emilia, 2011). Therefore, the concept of scaffolding in which possible supports the process of students‟ individual development is important to be emerged in the teaching stages of SFL – GBA (Bodrova Leong, 1998; Mulatsih, 2011). As a result, This study focuses on the issue of scaffoldings in the teaching of writing discussion texts based on SFL – Genre Based Approach. It particularly aims to investigate how scaffolding processes are implemented in the teaching of writing discussion texts based on SFL-GBA and how they improve the students‟ writing performance. The data rely on teaching and learning process in a classroom with six students in a tertiary level as the focus participants. The method used in the data analysis adopted a qualitative design with reference especially to the theory of the scaffolding and SFL-GBA. The results of analysis show that scaffolding processes are implemented in terms of macro and micro scaffoldings and able to improve the students‟ writing performance specifically in terms of social function, schematic structures, and language features of discussion genre. It is recommended that future related research should be conducted in more diverse of educational settings to see how scaffoldings are implemented in a variety of teaching practices.Keywords: scaffolding, discussion texts, SFL, genre-based approach.

Abstract

Anxiety in dealing with real teaching is experienced by preservice teachers. This anxiety can certainly disrupt the process of implementing real teaching. If anxiety can be detected early, various efforts can be made to reduce the anxiety. Thus, this study seeks to explore the anxiety faced by preservice teacher in dealing with real teaching and their efforts to reduce such anxiety. In order to achieve the research objectives, the researcher applied qualitative research through a case study strategy using structured interviews of 238 preservice teachers at one of Indonesia’s private universities. Based on the results of the study, it can be seen that there are 14 anxiety faced by preservice teachers in carrying out real teaching which is divided into 5 factors causing anxiety, namely schools, teachers, students, lecturers, and the preservice teachers themselves, as well as 9 attempts by preservice teachers in order to deal with this anxiety. Broadly speaking, good communication between preservice teachers and stakeholders of real teaching activities that includes schools, teachers, students, and lecturers is an effort that can be done so that the teaching anxiety can be reduced.

Abstract

This study tries to implement genre-based instruction in Iranian pre-intermediate EFL learners’ L2 listening skill. Moreover, it aims to investigate if genre-based instruction impacts the listening skills of EFL learners at different skill levels equally. To achieve this goal, 60 EFL learners have been selected. These were split into groups A and B. Groups A and B, respectively, consisted of 30 and 30 members. Group A was split into experimental and control groups and administered the pre and posttest of listening skills. Findings from one-way ANCOVA showed that because of using genre-based instruction, the experimental group outperformed the control group. Group B was also classified into proficient and less-proficient classes as demonstrated by the proficiency test; each administered two pre-and posttest of listening. Nonetheless, the findings of one-way ANCOVA revealed that both classes were improved from pretest to posttest; the professional group performed remarkably better than the less skilled group. Generally speaking, the results of this study showed that GBT is a key and crucial factor in developing listening comprehension.
