  • THE USE OF SILENT WAY THROUGH DIGITAL FLASHCARDS: BENEFITS AND CHALLENGES

    • Authors: Muhamad Tegar Pratama PRATAMA, Isti Gandana
      Abstract: The 1970s marked the emergence of innovative pedagogical approaches, notably Caleb Gattegno's Silent Way, as a response to the shortcomings of traditional learning methods like the Grammar-translation approach, which persist today. This research investigates the advantages and challenges of implementing Silent Way at an English Club in Bandung. Two English teachers from the English Club comprised the study cohort, and a qualitative case study served as the chosen methodology. The researcher meticulously processed the analysis through multiple stages. The researcher closely examined the observations to capture detailed insights, while also condensing interview transcriptions for quick reference, contributing to a robust dataset. By combining data from both observations and interviews, this comprehensive approach guided the conclusions of the study, which were presented within the research framework. The findings underscore numerous benefits associated with the utilization of the Silent Way in teaching English to children within an English club. Particularly noteworthy is its capacity to heighten engagement, boost students' confidence, and enhance critical thinking skills. Nonetheless, the study identifies certain internal and external factors as impediments to the full-scale implementation of this teaching method.

  • STUDENTS’ PERCEPTION OF USING DEEPL FOR TRANSLATING ENGLISH TEXT

    • Authors: Fhatur Ananda Sidiq, Syafryadin Syafryadin
      Pages: 139 - 148
      Abstract: Translation is important in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) setting since it requires turning the source language into the target language. This study is innovative considering the lack of earlier research in this subject. A descriptive quantitative technique was adopted in this study. Twenty six students of Physical Education was done fill the questionnaire. This in-depth assessment was carried out in order to learn as much as possible about the students' points of view and to determine whether or not their opinion was primarily poor or very good. The results demonstrate that while students using DeepL for translation realise vocabulary limitations, they also accept translation approaches. Beyond Google Translate, DeepL's extensive application, adaptability, and efficiency in word-by-word, phrase-by-phrase, and paragraph-by-paragraph translation tasks make it a crucial component of the translation process. Students' use of dictionaries is impacted by DeepL in varied ways; some overcome sloth, while others get addicted to quick searches. Students actively verify findings and learn grammar, even if they have doubts about DeepL. According to the study, the key to adopting DeepL is resolving vocabulary difficulties and striking a balance between technology and traditional language learning methodologies. In order to develop digital language training methods, it suggests examining DeepL's long-term effects on language learning objectives and proficiency.

  • INTEGRATING A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH ON MOBILE ASSISTED LANGUAGE LEARNING IN
           ENGLISH WRITING INSTRUCTION

    • Authors: Irma Savitri Sadikin, Oktian Fajar Nugroho, Muhamad Bahrul Ulum
      Pages: 177 - 188
      Abstract: Writing has often been considered a challenging skill to master. The purpose of this research is to investigate the effect of a scientific approach based on Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) on enhancing students' descriptive writing abilities. This investigation employed classroom action research with twenty-four ninth-grade junior high school students in West Jakarta as participants. The research was conducted in two cycles, utilizing observation, interviews, and a series of writing tests to collect data. The results indicated that students' writing improved as a consequence of the use of a scientific approach based on MALL. By engaging them in a number of practices at each meeting, working with websites and applications, and seeking feedback from both students and teachers, MALL tended to enhance students' writing abilities. Implementing a scientific approach supported by MALL has shown potential in helping learners enhance their ideas in writing. They demonstrated their ability to create lengthy paragraphs supplemented with relevant details. Students boosted their vocabulary learning by using digital dictionaries and watching videos. Regular feedback from peers and teachers were crucial in helping students understand the significance of punctuation and spelling accuracy in their written work. Therefore, it is advised to conduct additional scholarly research to examine the effectiveness of the scientific approach based on MALL, covering not just writing skills but also extending to reading, speaking, or listening skills.
