Abstract

There are some studies on traditional East Asian learning styles which found that the most popular East Asian learning styles come from the traditional book-centered and grammar-translation method and the students are seen as analytic, visual, field-independent, concrete-sequential, thinking-oriented and reflective styles. The teachers should match their teaching styles with students’ learning styles so that their motivation, performances, and achievements will increase and be enhanced. There are some approaches which can be applied in the classroom, such as diagnosing learning styles and developing self-aware EFL learners, altering the teaching style to create teacher-student style matching, encouraging changes in students behavior and fostering guided style-stretching and providing activities with different groupings. In this study, there are also some cases happened when teaching and learning process occurred in the classroom, for example first language interference, lack of cognates, culturally inappropriate materials, different learning expectations, no response, and students reluctant to speak and there are of course some ways to help students to relax and overcome those problems.

Abstract

Bahasa Indonesia, the national language of Indonesia, has traditionally borrowed items from the world’s classical languages, Sanskrit and Arabic. However, elements from European languages, especially English, have also massively influenced the expansion of Bahasa Indonesia’s lexicons. Massive influx of the latter  has caused a controversy among Indonesia’s linguists and other experts. Should greater loan be made from the former, as traditional source of borrowings, or should Bahasa Indonesia borrow more from the latter, as the language of modernity symbol in Indonesia? The controversy has been cleverly resolved with the adaptation and combination of elements of seemingly conflicting sources to serve specifically Indonesian objectives. In the lexical modernization of Bahasa Indonesia, despite the apparent irreconcilability of the two approaches to the use of foreign borrowings, Indonesians are effectively utilizing in a systematic manner the diverse foreign languages that their rich and varied history has made available to them.Keywords: Lexical Borrowing, Nativization, Bahasa Indonesia, Language Modernization

Abstract

Madrasahs evolved from Pesantren model of education. While pesantrens were the comparative model of the colonial Dutch model of education, madrasahs are hybrid model of the two. The emergence and development of madrasahs is based on Islamic principle of “keeping traditions and adopting the new when it is better.” There is distinction between Madrasahs and Pesantren. Madrasahs are general education schools run by Islamic institutions to provide education to Muslim pupils together with religious instruction. Pesantren are Islamic Boarding Schools for teaching Islamic studies. Some madrasahs are part of the pesantren system, others are not. In decentralization perspective madrasahs face the challenges of ensuring district government to maintain a vibrant private madrasah community, addressing common fears that their Islamic characteristics will disappear, dividing the line between general and religious education when madrasah teach an Islamic approach to general education balancing the demands for improved quality and increased enrolment.
