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

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

AbstractTeaching second or foreign language is not easy. Many researchers believe that the teachers should know several methods and teaching strategies in teaching language; such as, communicative language teaching, the grammar-translation method, the direct method, the audio-lingual method, the silent way, the suggestopedia, communicative language learning, total physical response, natural approach, and many more. In early 1980s, many educators assumed that communicative approach is a better way to teach second language to the students and this approach incorporated into the classroom (Brown, 2001). This essay will explore what communicative language teaching is and describe the factors led to its emergence in English language teaching.

Abstract

AbstractThe genre-based approach has been known to characterize pedagogical practices during the implementation of the 2006 school-level curriculum.  Despite its prevalent use and overwhelming support by school stakeholders,  the efficacy of this approach was nonetheless questionable. This paper aims to revisit the 2006 School level curriculum, its plausibility and compatibality with individual contexts and its bearing on EFL practices. It also disusses the Genre-based approach in terms of  its  underlying paradigms, and  possible variables and contextual factors which might have impinged on its implementation. Some research findings on the adoption of the approach in Southeast Asia context are also presented to provide insights into how the Genre-based approach could be efficiently adopted. This essay concludes with some ideas for the amendment to  the 2006 school- level curriculum and how the genre-based approach might still be relevant in the context of teaching writing skills at tertiary education.

Abstract

AbstractTomlinson(2010) states that learners of English all over the world are being tested on a variety of English they do not and never will speak. He further emphasizes that the students are being tested on British and American English and not on Singaporean English or Brazilian English or the International English that they speak.Indeed, language and culture are two sides of a coin. The teaching of language cannot be divorced from the teaching of culture. With the emergence of the notion “World Englishes”, it is high time to reconsider which English and whose culture should be taught and introduced to our students. It is the duty of English teachers to determine which English and whose culture to be taught. It is a waste of time, energy, and money to teach a variety of English that has nothing to do with the future life of our students.The paper tries to discuss about the cultural aspects that should be introduced to ourEnglish classes. It is hoped that English teachers realize about the kind of English needed by the students.

Abstract

Abstract This study is to see the Past –ed morphological acquisition which is placed on the Stage 2 of the Processability Theory (PT). The participants of this study were 26 university students in speaking classroom at Sarjanawiyata Tamansiswa University, Indonesia. The data, which was gathered from semi-structure individual interviews with several topics, were analysed using an Emergence Criterion (Pienemann, 1998).  The present study found that all participants did not acquire the Past -edon Stage 2 of English Developmental Stages. Several possible reasons were discussed in the study to find out why they were not able to produce Past –ed forms. However, the further research is also required due to the very limited research on this case.
