It specifically focuses on how the method is utilized in lessons, its presence in teaching plans, and the responses it receives from teachers and students. The EGRA method is selected due to its focus on experiential learning, thereby providing students with opportunities for creativity in their writing and facilitating discussions about their work. Each EGRA stage has its specific objectives, aiding students in understanding, formulating, revising, and applying ideas. Data, collected through observations, interviews, and document review, reveal how the EGRA method affects student participation and assists in effective material delivery, creating an engaging classroom environment. The method encourages various insightful activities and challenges students, thereby stimulating their knowledge and creativity. The research concludes the influential role of the EGRA method in activating student learning and transforming the teacher's role into a facilitator, breaking away from monotonous classroom conditions.</p> Nunur Hasanah, Indra Perdana, Maria Arina Luardini Copyright (c) 2023 Nunur Hasanah Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF LITERATURE ON THE EFFICACY OF WHATSAPP IN LANGUAGE LEARNING <p>This systematic review examines the efficacy of WhatsApp in language learning by synthesizing existing literature and identifying key themes, trends, and gaps in research. WhatsApp, a widely used instant messaging application, offers unique opportunities for language learners to engage in authentic language practice and interaction beyond traditional classroom settings. Through a systematic search of electronic databases and manual screening of reference lists, relevant studies published between January 2010 and December 2023 were identified. The findings reveal that WhatsApp is utilized for various language learning purposes, including informal practice, peer interaction, and collaborative learning activities. Positive outcomes associated with WhatsApp use include enhanced speaking proficiency, vocabulary acquisition, and learner engagement. However, challenges such as technical issues and privacy concerns hinder its full potential. Recommendations for future research include longitudinal studies to explore long-term effects, addressing technical barriers, and comparative studies to assess WhatsApp's relative efficacy. Overall, this review contributes to our understanding of WhatsApp's role as a versatile and effective tool in language education, offering insights for educators, researchers, and policymakers.</p> Muhammad Fachrul Ryannor, Elanneri Karani, Joni Bungai Copyright (c) 2023 Muhammad Fachrul Ryannor Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 AN ANALYSIS OF LANGUAGE STYLE USED BY “ENGLISH WITH LUCY”, THE MOST SUBSCRIBED ENGLISH TEACHER CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE <p>This article focuses on analyzing the language style used by the most subscribed English teacher channel on youtube from a sociolinguistics perspective.

This research employed descriptive qualitative research. The participants of this research were all of the students of SMPN Satu Atap-1 Kamipang Regency, therefore this research applied total population sampling. Three instruments such as pronunciation test, observation, and interview were used in this research. The result showed that phonological interference in this research happened in all three categories: sound addition, sound omission, and sound replacement, but mostly it happened in sound replacement category as many as 305 phonological interferences made by the students. This showed that most of the students tend to replace the phoneme they could not pronounce appropriately according to standardized English pronunciation. Even though several phonemes did not exist in Dayakese, the students could pronounce some of them properly because the students were familiar with those sounds, such as consonants /f/, /v/, /z/, /ʒ/, and diphthong /ʊə/. As in the classroom, the words which consisted of those sounds were often used. Besides, the phonemes which caused phonological interference for most of Dayakese students based on this research were consonants /θ/, /ʤ/, /ʃ/, /ʧ/, /ð/, vowels /ə/, /æ/, and diphthongs /ɪə/, /əʊ/, /eə/. several strategies used by students were repeat pronouncing, students’ correction, re-reading the text, read slowly, asking frequently, and paying attention to the teacher. However, the teacher also applied several strategies to overcome this issue: 1) Encouraging the students to practice by keeping them actively involved in class activities such as reading aloud in front of the class; 2) Correcting students’ error pronunciation after they finished reading a text; and 3) Repeat pronouncing to give the example to the students on how to pronounce the words.</p> Sonia Pitaloka Copyright (c) 2023 Sonia Pitaloka Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000
