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

The present study used a mixed method research design since it aimed at examining the degree of relationship between the students’ writing attitude, apprehension, and writing performance and investigating the causes of both factors. The finding of the study revealed that there was a significantly positive correlation between attitude towards writing and learners’ writing performance (r=.240 and sig=.049<.05) and the difference of performance was significant (Sig.= .018 < .05). The writing apprehension and writing performance were significantly negatively correlated (r=-.246, sig=.043) and the difference of performance was significant (Sig.= .000< 0.05). The interview result showed several factors causing the students’ writing attitude and apprehension. The positive attitudes were caused by the importance of English as an international language, the relationship of English and science, the interest in writing and English, and the lecturer’s evaluation. Students having negative attitude confessed that they were not good at English, writing in English was a difficult activity, and they did not write much. Low writing apprehension was caused by the interest in writing, being good at grammar and vocabulary, and positive thinking in completing the task. At last, students with high apprehension thought that they were afraid of making mistakes; since they were not good at English, they tended to translate bahasa Indonesia into English, and they were not able to develop topics given by the lecturer.
