Grammar is the sound, structure, and meaning system of language. The goal is to teach the students grammar through meaningful activities which are both fun and engaging. It is important that the teacher always has the goal in mind for teaching grammar and that the students learn this in a communicative ways.
Young children are wonderful in absorbing new language. They can get maximum of language through games and activities that they find funny. Their success in learning foreign language does not depend on their knowledge of grammar. As Pinter (2006) stated that children can use grammatical structures very well, they can speak language clearly, but they are not able to say why they use particular structure.
Teachers, of course, should be aware of grammar and structures that they want their children to know. But they should teach just a minimum of grammar because mastering grammar is to help them speak with organized sentence structures in order to make themselves understood. Some children are able to deal with simple grammar at the age of ten or eleven. If our students learn proper speaking habits while they are young, this should help them become good communicators in the future. According to this statement, i have an experience when i was in junior high school. My teacher tought us with the simple grammar. My teacher always make an exampple using simple grammar.
My teacher gave us assignment to arrange words using grammar which has been explained in the form of groups and it make us more understand about learning grammar.

That’s all for today. Thank You.

Learning Words

Heloo everyone…
Welcome to my blog. So now i want to tell you about learning words and my experience about it.

Learning word is related with vocabulary. When we want to learn words we sholud know the vocabulary. Vocabulary is about learning words, but it is about much more than that. Vocabulary can be split into two types: receptive vocabulary and expressive vocabulary. A child’s receptive vocabulary consists of the words the child understands when he/she hears or reads them. A child’s receptive vocabulary consists of the words the child understands when he/she hears or reads them. A child’s expressive vocabulary consists of the words the child uses when he/she speaks. Children typically understand or recognize more words than they actually use when speaking.
Vocabulary is the basis for learning language. As children learn to read, they must learn to decode (sound-out) print, but they also must have a vocabulary base (word knowledge) in order to make sense of what they decode.
As a teacher, we can use the things to teach the words to our student. Example, when i was in elementary school, my teacher taught us use poster. In that poster there are the picture of animal, fruit, things and other and every picture has the name. So my teacher always read each name of the picture, and we should follow after her. After that, my teacher will ask us to memorize the word. From this method, our vocabulary is increase.

 

That’s all for today. Thank You.

Learning the Spoken Language

Heloo welcome to my blog everyone…..

So today i want to tell you about my experience in learning the spoken language. In learning the spoken language, meaning must come first. If children don’t understand the meaning or the spoken language, they can’t learn it.
Like my experience when i was in junior high school, if the teacher don’t tell us about the meaning or we don’t know the meaning, we will lazy to learn that material and some of my friends don’t want to learn it because they don’t understand it. For us, we should know the meaning first.

I have the second experience, when i ever taught the student in SD advent when i was in second semester. when i taught them full in English, they don’t understand about the material that i gave to them, so i mix the language. I explain the difficult word in Bahasa and i will mix it in English also.

Learning Language Through Tasks and activities

Helo everyone…. 😀

Welcome back to my blog. 😀 😀
So in this blog i will tell you about learning language through task and activities.

According to Van Gert(1995), Classroom and activities are seen as the ‘environment’ or ‘ecosystem’ in which growth of skills in the foreign language takes place.
In learning language, we begin by analysing the environment created by an activity in terms of demands on learners and support for learning. In learning language proccess, task demand and task support should balance.

Like my experience when i was in school, the teacher gave us the task, and we should do the task. After gave the task the teacher will check the task and if there are a student find the difficult in this task, the teacher will explain about the task. so in this point in learning language, the environment between task demands and task supports should be balance.

Okay, that’s all for this blog, Thank you 😀

Children Learning a Foreign Language

language

Hy everyone, Welcome to my blog. 😀 😀
Now i want to tell you about children learning a foreign language. Do you know what is the different between children and adult in learn English? Children are often more excited and lively as learners. Children also seem less embarrassed than adults at talking in new language. Like me when i was young i never shy to ask my teacher about word i don’t understand.  Children will have a go at an activity even when they don’t quiet understand why or how. But, they easy to to lose interest if they find difficult task.
As a future educator, we will find that important differences do arise from the linguistic, psychological and social development of the learners, and that, as a result, we need to adjust the way we think about the language we teach and the classroom activities we use.
In this topic, i will give an overview of theory relevant to children’s language learning.
I begin with the work of two of the major theorist in developmental psychology, “Pieget and Vygotsky”, high lighting key ideas from their work that can inform how we think of the child as a language learner.
Piaget tell how children function in the world that surrounds them and how this influences their mental development. Piaget said that child as an active learner and thinker, constructing his or her own knowledge from working with object or ideas. Diffrent with Piaget, Vygotsky focus on the social modern developments (social cultural theory). He has investigated how adults use language to mediate the world for children and help them to solve problems. According Vygotsky, language is the most important tool to cognitive growth to children.

Reviewing movie Called “WONDER”

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog 😀 😀
So, today I want to tell you about my reviewing movie called wonder.

Wonder movie poster
I this movie there is a boy who hasn’t like ordinary kids. His name is August Pullman. He called Auggie. He has facial difference since he was born. He is a smart boy, especially in science. He really like star wars,he really like halloween, and he has a sister name Via. Via really love his brother. She is the most undestanding daughter. He also has a good family who always support him.
In this movie, he is entering fifth grade and he want to go to public school. He got home schooling before. In his first school, he gets bullying. It make him hate to go to school. But his parents support him in that time. When he come to school again, he got a friend because he help him in pop quiz, his name is Jack Will. Both of them spend their time together. Time by time He got much friends. Auggie proved by the difference he had, he could achieve.

Pro in this movie is Eventhough Auggie has genetic abnormally, he still strong.
and the contra is he has bullying and many people look underestimate him.

My own reflection about this movie is, even if we have to be less, we should be stay strong.

My favorite actor/actres in this movie is Via. Because she is really understanding girl, eventhough her parents more give attention to his brother, she still strong.

I think that’s all abou my review, Thank You.

First Meeting in Teaching English to Young Learners Class

yl

Hello guys…. 😀 Welcome back to my blog. So here i want to tell you about my first meeting experience in Teaching English to Young Learners Class. September 17th, 2019, we have class about Teaching English to Young Learners. In this class, we were talking about how to teach young learners.

WhatsApp Image 2019-09-23 at 22.41.39

In this photo, my lecturer told us what is the meaning of young learners and what will we find when we teach them. After that, my lecturer told us to write down our perspective about teaching young learners. We should tell our opinion about the difficulties, good and bad, our approach, and the technique of teaching young learners.

So here is my perspective about teaching young learners.
For me the difficulties to teach young learner is they are still labiel and moody, some times difficult to make them hear what we said. I love teaching children, because they are still innocent and they are fun to teach. So, that is my good thing for teaching young learners. My bad things teaching them is they are still labile, sometimes, some of them gossiping and laugh when I were teaching. They don’t give attention to me. The approach that I used is, I will guide them in an interesting way that will make them understand and interest in the lesson. The technique that i used to teach them are I will make a game related to the lesson every meeting. So that they are more interest in the lesson.

Okay guys, I think that’s all about my experience. Good bye and Thank You. 😀 😀

Tell A Story

Haii guys.. 😀 😀 . Now I want To tell you about my experience. My experience was told a story to people.
My group went to SD Advent Ciracas.

advent                    advent 2

This was the first time i told a storry in front of people and i felt so nervous even though they are just students in junior high school.
😀 But,when we arrived to this school, my nerves suddenly disappear because they very welcome to us and i felt so happy.
My group told a stroy in one class. When we went into that class, there were 27 students in that class and ther was one teacher to guide us. I was very shocked to see their class. Because There was a lot of creativity in their class about their lesson.

They are very creative. When we want to start our story, we gave them paper about the story one sheet per person. The reason we gave them the paper is so that they more understand about the story.

We have differents story one each other.But before we told a story to them, we prayed first.
The story that I got to them was about mouse deer and crocodile. The reason why i gave this story to them,because this story told about crocodile who was very easy believe something. I told this story to them so that they are wise to believe something and so that they thought first before they believe in something.

When i started tell the story, they look very seriously listening to the story. i was very amazed to them because they could understand my story. I thought they are a smart students. They were very interested with the story that I told although there were some students who didn’t pay attention to the story.
