It used document analysis as the main method of data collection. The study obtained some important findings. First, complex sentences containing multiple clause structures became the most frequently written of all, and among the four types of complex sentences, ones containing multiple clause structures became the most frequently written of all complex sentences. Secondly, students’ mastery of complex sentences containing noun clauses, adjective clauses, and adverb clauses was good. Their mastery of complex sentence containing multiple clause structures, however, was surprisingly very low despite that the students had obtained relatively good results on the three above-mentioned basic types of complex sentence. Keywords: Mastery, complex sentences, noun clauses, adjective clauses, adverb clauses, multiple clause structures

Abstract

Social caring can be interpreted as affection and attention to other people which can later be manifested in an appreciating, accepting, and helping behavior. The behavior is not automatically possessed by each individual. Instead, it should be learnt, understood, internalized, and implemented in daily life. This article aims at discussing the strategies to enhance students social caring through multicultural awareness in language learning. Social caring serves as character values which appreciates diversity. It needs to be internalized from the very early age so that each individual understands how to deal with diversity. One of the alternatives in supporting the implementation of social care character is through multicultural-based learning activities. Hopefully, this type of learning leads students to appreciate diversity.  Keywords: character, social caring,  multicultural-based activities
