Abstract

This essay will discuss the interpretation of sociolinguistics in translating the culture of Indonesia regarding the happiness context. As an emotional concept, happiness or kebahagiaan in the Indonesia language has an ambiguity in articulation when someone percept it as a conditional of a joyfull the one feels. Since the word has an ambiguity in meaning, the role of Sociolinguistics is significant in identifying what Indonesian people coin when say aku bahagia (I’m happy). The main argument of this paper focuses on the term kebahagiaan in the different situations and people. The first part of this essay will discuss the term of the happiness in the global meaning and its correlation with the term of emotion. The second part addresses the term kebahagiaan in the Indonesian language and its derivation of meaning.  The last part of the essay speaks about how to measure the concept of the word kebahagiaan the Indonesian people use in their daily life.

Abstract

There are many students of Islamic Education and Teacher Training Facultyof IAIN Walisongo Semarang who have complained that Islamic reading texts used by their teachers are hard for them to understand. I examine this issue by seeing some linguistic aspects of those reading texts. This Qualitative and Descriptive approach highlighted the types of grammatical and lexical cohesive devices and the realization of cohesiveness of those reading textsbased on Halliday and Hasan’s theory.The result of the study shows that the six reading texts (A.1, 2, 3; and B.1, 2, 3) stated in reading textbooks: English for Islamic Studies, English for Islamic Studies 2, Understanding Islam; for Islamic Studies; in terms of cohesion (following Halliday and Hasan’s principles of reading texts) respectively the average score of anaphoric references: 54.17% for text A.3, 53.85% for text B.2, 53.06% for text A.1, 48.57% for text B.3, 41.86% for text B.1, 33.33% for text A.3. After consulting to the Halliday and Hasan’s principles of cohesion of the reading texts (1989), that the most cohesive reading texts is text A.3, whereas the least cohesive one is Text A.2. Finally, these factors will assist lecturers and students in choosing the appropriate book for them.

Abstract

The ability of young learners to grasp and to imitate what they hear is one of potential opportunities that should be taken into account by EYL teachers. They can use this advantage to facilitate them to acquire a good pronunciation since their earlier age.

Flashcards are considered as appropriate media because of its practicality to be used in the classroom and its economical reason. The detail of teaching procedure will be listed in pre-, whilst-, and post- teaching so that it is expected that this article give practical benefit to EYL teachers’ classroom practices.
