Abstract

Kosa kata memainkan peranan penting dalam pembelajaran Bahasa Inggris. Pembelajaran kosa kata dalam Bahasa Inggris merupakan hal yang tidak mudah terutama bagi para siswa sebagai pembelajar pemula. Selain itu, mereka memiliki karakteristik khusus yang sangat berbeda dari orang dewasa. Dengan menitikberatkan pada perbedaan karakteristik tersebut, dapat disimpulkan bahwa para guru yang mengajar pembelajar pemula memiliki tugas yang menantang untuk dapat memotivasi mereka dalam proses pembelajaran. Dalam hal ini, para guru harus lebih kreatif dan menjauhkan siswa mereka dari rasa bosan saat pembelajaran kosa kata Bahasa Inggris. Mereka harus menyiapkan materi yang akan diberikan kepada para siswa dan juga memilih teknik yang sesuai untuk digunakan. Dengan melakukan hal-hal tersebut, mereka dapat membuat siswa memiliki ketertarikan yang besar dalam proses pembelajaran. Mereka harus mampu memilih dan menggunakan teknik-teknik pengajaran yang dapat membuat proses pembelajaran menjadi lebih menyenangkan, menarik, dan menggembirakan bagi para siswa.  Salah satu teknik tersebut adalah menggunakan permainan di dalam kelas. Menggunakan permainan dapat memberikan banyak keuntungan bagi para guru dan siswa. Berdasarkan hal tersebut, dapat disimpulkan bahwa menggunakan permainan dalam pembelajaran kosa kata Bahasa Inggris sangatlah efektif, karena menggunakan permainan sangat menyenangkan dan cocok dengan karakteristik anak-anak sebagai pembelajar pemula.    Key words: Vocabulary, Young Learner, Games

Abstract

Listening has been claimed as one of the most challenging skill to teach since many research found that the students, especially EFL students, still worried when having a listening  class. Listening still gives a fear for the students as long as they couldn’t deal with their worriness in joining listening class. It may be caused by their nescience in figuring out what strategy they could use while they are trying to do listening tasks given.This study aims to investigate metacognitive listening strategies used by EFL students in listening class. This study is to find out what strategies mostly adopted by the students in listening class. Besides, this study also tries to propose a need mapping for constructing listening tasks. The students were English Departmenet students of Universitas Tidar. In this study, the data were collected by using Metacognitive Awareness Listening Questionnaire (MALQ) adopted form Vandegrift. The results revealed that the students mostly used problem-solving strategies while doing listening tasks. The use of this strategy implies that most of the students belong to effective listeners. On the other hand, the use of mental translation is the least use among the students. These results are needed  as one of the basic needs in developing listening tasks. The result could give a clear guidance and limitation for developing listening tasks for the students.
