Abstract

This study aims to determine the differences in English vocabulary skills of students using the Keywords-Pictorial learning method with students who use the After Reading Card Game learning method. This study used a quasi-experimental research method with the study of Nonequivalent Control Group Design. The population subjects in this study were all of the fifth grade students of MI Al-Istiqomah, Tangerang City, which numbered 50 students, taking a sample of 25 students in the first experimental class and 25 students in the second experimental class. The technique of collecting data using test questions instruments describing vocabulary skills consists of 20 valid and realistic questions. Based on the results of the study, testing the posttest hypothesis from the results of the t-test obtained tcount = 29.05 and table = 2.02, it can be concluded that there are significant differences between the posttest grade values of the first experimental class and the second experimental class. This can be interpreted that the English vocabulary abilities of students using the After Reading Card Game learning method are higher with students who use the Keywords-Pictorial learning method. Keywords: Keywords-Pictorial method; After Reading Card Game, mastery of vocabulary

Abstract

This research describes challenges encountered by EFL instructor in teaching integrated-listening skill in the university. To deal with this issue, a qualitative approach notably a basic interpretive study was deployed as the research design. Conducted in a private university in Blitar, East Java, this study took 23 students enrolled in Advanced Listening course as the participants. The data were collected through observation, interview, and document analysis. The result revealed that EFL instructor experienced some challenges in teaching integrated-listening skill to university students. The challenges included difficulties in locating appropriate materials, the students? low level of English proficiency, and the students? problematic attitude. Those problems hindered the students? ability in both speaking and writing activities as a follow-up to listening activity. Current gap in listening-related study is recognized, and suggestions for both practitioners and future researchers are proposed.

Abstract

AbstractParagraph writing in the context of Academic Writing in a number of academies and universities in Indonesia is considered a skill whose mastery needs reasoning or logical thinking besides knowledge of grammatical rules, lexis, and also ability to translate from bahasa Indonesia into English effectively and efficiently.Logical thinking should be exercised ever since the student writers begin their initial up to the final phase of writing a paragraph. They may not necessarily pour down their ideas in sentences the way they like. This is because first of all they have to determine the main idea, also known as topic sentence, that needs formulating from the general subject or topic that is still too broad to be developed. To formulate the topic sentence, they have to exercise their logical thinking. Then, the main idea has to be supported by supporting sentences which are related to one another. The process of writing supporting sentences and their interrelationship should also be based on logical thinking. Finally, the paragraph is closed by means of a sentence which concludes the discussion of the whole paragraph.A paragraph that flows smoothly or, in other words, is readable is, without any doubt, the one that is effective and sensible.

Abstract

AbstractMultiliteracies in language teaching can make the process of teaching language easier, more interesting and better. This can include the use of technology in the classroom. To apply multiliteracies in the classroom both students and teachers must be multiliterate.In writing class, multiliteracies can be applied by using computer and internet in the teaching and learning process. It can be applied in three steps: preparation, implementation, and evaluation. In preparation step the teacher can find sources of teaching material from textbooks and browsing in the internet. Then, he/she can use power points when presenting the teaching material, giving exercises and task. In the last step, evaluation, the teacher gives an assignment and the students should submit their work via email to the teacher. The teacher then gives some feedback using computer (comment bar) and send it back to the students. The students must revise the work based on the teacher’s feedback and send again to the teacher. This way of teaching is more interesting for the students, more efficient and therefore can give better result in learning.

Abstract

Abstract Not only does love concern with different sexes of human beings but it also is about God, nature, brotherhood, friendship, and humanity itself. Love does not demand but gives and more it sacrifices for the sake of itself. Pathfinder thus offers a great value of love.Love, despite its universality and immense power embracing human life, might be bound by certain situation and condition as it occurred to Pathfinder. Through an objective approach, this paper tries to put forward how the main character, Pathfinder realized that his love was bound to nature, his nature. The problem emerging from the story concerns the kind of love within the personality of Pathfinder so that he can sincerely encounter, though painfully, his unsuccessful love based on his awareness of his nature.Through a hard effort of easing his own bleeding heart of dealing with the failure in gaining his love, Pathfinder comes to his solution that he has to change his love, from a love of a man towards a woman into a love of a father to his daughter. He has to realize that his nature is different from that of Mabel’s. His age, way of life, customs, neighborhood, and his identity show that he does not match Mabel and so hers to him. His nature calls him back and gives him enlightenment of who he really is. He is neither an Indian nor a white, but he is both an Indian and a white man. That is his accomplishment of his quest on his identity.

Abstract

AbstractLanguage practitioners often seem language phenomena as degeneration or decay. This is something misleading and need to be taken seriously into consideration. Purists and prescriptivists should see the phenomena not only from the normative point of view but also from the science of language itself, which is still forgotten. This article thus attempts to propose insights from linguistics related to the term good and bad language, with the focus on good and bad English. Is there any good and bad language? The answer to the question can only be given at best by elaborating the linguistics concept. This discussion is of benefit for language learning of which it is closely related.

Abstract

AbstractContrastive Analysis, Transfer Analysis, Error Analysis, and Interlanguage are methods used for second language learning investigation. They constitute evolutionary phases in the attempt to understand and explain the nature of the target language learners’ performance. Each theory has its own view, especially in the attitude toward learners’ errors and the explanatory hypotheses regarding the sources of errors. They also appear to have one goal, that is, an attempt to facilitate the process of target language learning or teaching by studying learners’ errors. They are complement to one another; they constitute four phases with one goal.Contrastive analisis aims to provide teachers and/or textbook writers with information that can be utilized in the preparation of instructional materials, the planning of courses, and the development of classroom techniques. Contranstive studies are carried out in order to describe the differences between learners’ native language amd the target language. They believe that it is on these differences that the learning difficulties lie, consequently errors exist. Transfer analysis is a new lebel given to contrastive analysis. Other sister terms are language transfer and crosslinguistic influence. This is an analytical tool which constitutes a sub discipline within error analysis. Its basic assumption is that certain errors in learner performance are the result of native language transfer. Error Analisis disproves the predictions of theory lying behind the comparison of native language and target language. It is an experimental technique for validating the theory of transfer. Its goal is to find out something about the psycholinguistic process of language learning. It enables us to draw a certain conclusions about the strategies used by the learner in his learning process. Interlanguage is a popular term to refer to learners’ versions of the target language. It usually contains elements of both the learners’ native language and target language. Interlanguage is resulted from the learner’s attempts to produce the target language construction. In other words, it is the product of the second language learning process.

Abstract

AbstractAmong words classes or parts of speech a noun and a verb or precisely a noun phrase and a verb phrase play a very important role in syntax. In English, they mark the presence of sentence. The relationship between them is very close that one may cause the presence of another. This is often called a subject-predicate relationship and their degree is a bilateral dependency i.e. the verb phrase determines the noun phrase called valence and the noun phrase determines the verb through agreement (Bussman, 1996:1139). Other relationships among different phrases are one-sided or in the form of modifiers, subordinators, or complementizers, one is more important than others.This paper attempts to discuss a noun phrase and a verb phrase as the main part of a sentence. Some special characteristics of the noun phrase and the verb phrase are discussed. This paper also tries to see if other sentence elements such as an adjectival, adverbial, and prepositional phrases can have an emphasis in a sentence.
