Abstract

One of the elements in the selection of the “ITS Heroes 2015” to be the candidates for National Selection for Student Competition (Mawapres) is the ability of the participants to communicate in English in the form of writing and speaking performance. In the writing performance, the participants must submit an English abstract of their papers, and in the speaking performance, the participants are required to tell themselves in English. From these two evaluation items, the abstract is more interesting to analyze in terms of the writing errors the participants made in it. This paper presents the analysis of the common writing errors made by the participants of “ITS Heroes 2015”. The errors are categorized and analyzed based on the checklist items by adopting Kim (2009)’s error classification system, which is based on Dulay, Burt, and Krashen’s classification system.

Abstract

A foreign language will be more effectively learned when integrated with content rather than isolated as a learned subject; thus the language should be more used in contexts than just formally learned. Recent language teaching methods have been geared toward involving both content and language teaching simultaneously, referred as CLIL, CBI, EMI or L2 use. This article is aimed at describing the use of L2 in teaching content subjects by looking at the attitudes of the students and the interaction between students and teachers at a university in Indonesia. Using mixed research method by conducting survey and non-participant observation to obtain the data about the classroom interaction and attitudes of the students in EMI classes, this study reveals that students’ attitude towards EMI classes is at a moderate to high level. The classroom interaction has been mostly done in English. Both the students and the lecturers use English in the classroom when they are involved in activities up to a certain level for content understanding. In addition, it is common to find code mixing or code switching during interaction. This can be due to their awareness of the benefits and advantages of having more English interaction in this program.

By following Evans‟ (2006) theory on the types of hedges/hedging expressions, this study found that Oprah Winfrey Talk Show contains 9 (nine) types of hedges/hedging expressions which are equally used by Oprah Winfrey toward her interlocutors.In terms of pragmatic functions of hedges/hedging expressions, it is found that most the hedges/hedging expressions are used for mitigating a criticism or request and softening a stance or opinion. This identification is following Simpsons‟ (2010) finding on her study about hedges in scientific discourse. In addition, the result of this study suggests that the use of hedges/hedging expressions (in the talk show) carries speaker and sentences implicature.The findings of this research also indicate that hedges/hedging expressions can be used to signal the sensitivity to other‟s feeling.

As the result, even it is like common conversation but there are many politeness utterances considerably. Therefore, it is suggested that the study about the use of hedges/hedging expressions could be extended, strengthened and improved in the practical contexts to cover the attempts to help students develop their ability of speaking and competence in rearrange the topic into smooth and good communication. In a broader perspective, the use of hedges/hedging expressions could be developed, either through practical teaching in the classroom or through language researches.Key Words: hedges, pragmatic function of hedges, implicature.

Abstract

This study explores the significance of new identity for the African-American people as a protest against the discriminative pressures happened from 1960s to 1970s through Amiri Baraka‟s poems.

Baraka tries not to follow the traditional rules anymore. With his poems, Amiri Baraka engaged the African-Americans to produce literary products with a strong and prominent style of writing, and adopt African languages.

Abstract

This paper discusses the practical strategies of how to teach reading skills communicatively using authentic materials in an English as a foreign language context. Reading is approached as an interactive process between the readers‟ mind and the text. It is not merely a receptive activity but it is a process whereby readers create imaginations and anticipate ideas which might come up from the linguistic forms of the text. Throughout the reading process, readers construct ideas by synergizing the ideas of their minds and the signs conveyed by the text. Hence, comprehension is more efficient. In order to comply with such a process, learners are facilitated maximally through the activation of their background knowledge and the provision of linguistic and conceptual hints which are conducted by teachers in a pre-reading phase. To develop the linguistic skill and affirm the comprehension, furthermore, the ideas that have been constructed throughout the whilst-reading step are, then, used as materials to conduct the post reading activities.Key words: interactive reading approach, authentic materials, three-phase techniques
