Abstract

In this study, the writer tried to teach English (reading skill) to the eighth grade students of Junior high school. The reading material that the writer taught was Narrative text based on the syllabus of English subject at the eighth grade level students.

In narrative text, the students should know about generic structure (Orientation, Complication, and Resolution), language features of narrative text (using simple past tense), and also the students can get new vocabulary in learning narrative text. Finally, students are able to answer the questions based on the text correctly. This study using cooperative learning, means students working together to accomplish shared goals. Within cooperative activities individuals seek outcomes that are beneficial to themselves and beneficial to all other members.

Abstract

Literature is a kind of the artwork which uses a language as a medium. If it said that literature is a language in one side, learning literature is, at the same time, learning a language in the other side. English literature is literature written in English language. In this relation, learning English literature is, at the same time, learning English language. If literature talks about human life, by using literary works we can learn and build our social awareness, and at almost the same time we can contribute to nation character building. In this paper, the writer offers the mechanism of how the literary works can be used to develop language competence (in listening, speaking, reading and writing) and the advantages of learning the literary works in relation to the social awareness building or nation character building.

Abstract

Viewpoints toward writing as the most difficult skill to acquire in EFL setting provide myriad opportunities for students to experience writing anxiety. Also, gender roles in language learning utilize different expectations toward writing anxiety. The study aims at investigating whether there is significant difference in levels of writing anxiety on the basis of gender, 110 undergraduate students, 55 of each, and also what factor(s) are included. For the purposes of finding the significance, it was designed a ready-made 26-item questionnaire named FLCAS in Writing, using Likert-scale. The findings revealed that student’s sex was not significant variable in levels of writing anxiety by the test of significance (2-tailed) of .362 (p>0.05) in independent sample t-test, with insignificant mean difference of 2.145. It reported that male students felt higher levels of writing anxiety than females. The test of factor analysis described factor affecting student’s levels of writing anxiety was mostly on the light of evaluation apprehension, not either stress or product apprehension.

Abstract

English for Specific Purposes (ESP) has been a current trend in language teaching for years. The ESP principles take part in the process of designing a syllabus or developing a teaching material for a particular course or study. Traditionally ESP courses were typically designed for intermediate or advanced adult learners. Nowadays many students can start to learn academic or vocational English at an earlier age and at a lower level of proficiency. A needs analysis, which is a part of ESP’s principles, is applied in order to find the needs of the course’s participants. This paper comprises three parts; the nature of ESP, the needs analysis in ESP, and ESP in EFL context.

Abstract

Aceh has great talents and prodigy who need intervention. Talking about these talents should start with understanding them as a whole, who they really are, how can we identify them, how can we best serve them for their best potential growth.  Designing the programs that best suit them become the next step after carefully selecting them. Later, we need to formulate special programs, special schools, special human resource who will work with them to boost these prodigies’ abilities. Failing to do so will only result in undermining and downgrading their ability instead of doing them a favor. It is highly recommended that government start tapping into this as early as possible for maximum result. In this short article, I also present on how government should work with these talents and prodigies by carefully selecting them. Selection process will later base the whole programs and determine its success. Different approach and interventions are presented here as option and ways to be taken and considered for best result possible.  These approaches are not the only solution to be considered. There should be more out there that government should also consider. Last aspect, but not least, is developing human resources who will teach them. Teachers must be carefully selected and trained so that they can understand and are able to pace up and formulate the curriculum that best serve their students’ need.
