Prof. Bambang Setiyadi - English Learning Strategies - Jasa Penerbitan Buku Halaman Moeka P.


Teaching without learning is useless. When we are teaching English but our students are not learning the language, it seems that we are doing nothing. As English teachers we should make our students learn English when we teach the language.  If our purpose is how to make our students learn English effectively, we have to know how our students learn the language; we have to know what strategies which make them learn the language more effectively and what strategies which make them learn it less effectively. To identify the strategies affecting their learning, we have to portray the strategies they employ when we teach them English. Departing from the question of what measurement to be used to identify how Indonesian learners use English learning strategies, a questionnaire has been developed for students in EFL settings. Language Learning Strategy Questionnaire or the LLSQ introduced here is a questionnaire we can use to portray the strategies that Indonesian students use in learning English. Through this questionnaire we can explore effective learning strategies that our students employ and, in turn, we can make our students do better learning by providing appropriate tasks to trigger them to be successful language learners.
