To fill in the need is the main purpose of JET. This journal wishes to serve JET researchers and educators to disseminate their thoughts and research results to advance the English&nbsp;Education field. JET is a tri-annual publication featuring original articles on a wide range of topics on English Education and usually be published every February, June, and October each year.</p> <p>JET is supported through a panel Peer Reviewer members whose revision is based upon the relevance, clarity, and value of the articles submitted by the writers. Then, the papers which have been revised are submitted back to the writer to be completed.</p> <p>JET is first published in 2011 by the <a href="">English Education Department</a>, Faculty of Teachers Training and Education, Christian University of Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia.</p> <p><a title="SINTA" href=""><strong>Accreditation.</strong> </a>Since 2019, JET is accredited by&nbsp;the Ministry of Higher Education of Indonesia in level 4 of SINTA (Science and Technology Index).</p> <h4>Indexed in:</h4> <p><a title="drji" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt="" width="202" height="78"></a> <a title="academic microsoft" href=";f=&amp;orderBy=0&amp;skip=0&amp;take=10" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="semantic" href=";sort=relevance" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="base search" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="google schoolar" href=";hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="one search" href="[]=repoId:IOS5786" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src=" search.png" alt=""></a> <a title="neliti" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="academic resource index" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="issn" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt="" width="221" height="63"></a> <a title="road" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="copernicus" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""></a> <a title="garuda" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="" alt=""><img src="" alt=""><img src="" alt="" width="151" height="151"></a> &nbsp;<img src="" alt="" width="155" height="145"><a title="ERIC" href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="/public/site/images/jeditor/eric.png" width="173" height="66"></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> The role of explicit instruction in acquisition of English syllable structure among Ghanaians 2022-11-05T10:32:51+00:00 Mohammed Sadat <p>The debate between effectiveness of explicit and implicit teaching has taken a center stage in the second language acquisition literature over a long period of time. Most of such debates center on grammar teaching and very few discuss suprasegmental features especially, syllable structure. All languages have some sort of syllabicity; however, the phonetic characteristics of syllables differ across languages. The difference can be seen in onset and coda. The current study examines the effects of explicit instruction on the acquisition of English syllable structure among Ghanaian learners of English. The paper investigates the efficiency of interventions through explicit teaching on the English syllable structure in a classroom setting. English syllables have some structures that are absent in the first language of the participants and these structures pose difficulties for speakers who learn English. This paper explores those structures and adopts explicit instruction as an intervention to remedy the difficulties. The investigation is done on participants who are Ghanaian speakers learning English. The study discovers that in disyllabic words there is a preference of trochaic syllables over iambic syllables, the acquisition of onsets is easier than acquisition of codas and finally, explicit teaching is very effective in the classroom.</p> 2022-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of English Teaching Exploring The Use of Wattpad as Media in Language Learning Strategy: Teacher’s and Student’s Perspective of Writing Performance Approach 2022-11-05T13:23:59+00:00 Ridwan Nafiul Faqih Achmad Munir Syafi’ul Anam <p>Technology is playing an increasing role in education worldwide and is having a growing impact on the design and delivery of English language teaching. Teachers are expected to understand how to integrate technology into their teaching as well as know how to help learners make use of resources such as media and the internet to improve their learning of all four skills. As such technology offers both new challenges as well as new opportunities for both teachers and learners. This article investigates the use of Wattpad in language teaching and explores more from the perspective of teachers and students in the online classroom. It offers teachers and learners to vary the process of the teaching and learning processes by using technology-mediated teaching and learning. However, this study presents a mini research project on how the teacher of one school has used technology as a medium to teach the students in online classes recently due to Covid 19. Teachers and students should be collaborative so the process of teaching-learning able to run well. It will become a big challenge for the teacher to engage the students during the teaching process.</p> 2022-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of English Teaching Senior High School English Textbooks and Religious Aspects 2022-11-05T16:47:55+00:00 Alvia Nurrahma Ekasiwi Barli Bram <p>Indonesia is a diverse country consisting of various cultures and also religions. Currently, there are six official religions recognized by the Indonesian government, which are Islam, Protestant, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhi, and Confucianism. Thus, it is important for English book writers to design an English textbook that not only accommodates the needs of the students but also contains learning content which are representing all those varied religions and cultures in order to represent the background of the students. This study focuses on the portrayal of religious content found in the six Indonesian English textbooks published by the government and private sector. The purpose of the study is to assess, whether the six Indonesian English textbooks fairly distribute religious content through the textbooks’ visual illustrations or not. Visual content analysis was used as the methodology of the study to answer the research question. Based on the findings of the study, it was revealed that all the six Indonesian textbooks did not fairly distribute the religious contents. Some religions were having little to no representation in the textbooks. The religions portrayed throughout the contents were Islam, Protestantism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism.</p> 2022-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of English Teaching Online Learning During Covid-19 Pandemic in the Sixth Semester Students of University of Muhammadiyah Tangerang 2022-11-06T16:13:37+00:00 Ishak Euis Yanah Mulyanah Desi Purwasih <p>The objective of this research found out The Impact of Online Learning in The Covid-19 Pandemic on Students in the Sixth Semester of the University of Muhammadiyah Tangerang.

Fifty learners were purposively selected based on the set criteria. To determine the learners’ academic efficacy, the adapted survey questionnaire for academic self-efficacy scale (ASES) for junior high school learners developed by Mr. Angelo Reyes Dullas of Central Luzon State University (CLSU), Philippines was used, while a semi-structured questionnaire prompted the participants to describe their experiences during the blended learning modality. The collected quantitative data were analyzed and interpreted using the mean, frequency counts, and Pearson r while coding and theming for the qualitative data. The study found that the participants' mean grades were very satisfactory and outstanding during the first and second quarters, respectively. A calculated r-value of 0.78, strongly positively correlated, indicates that the learners’ academic efficacy goes with their performance. This means that the high the academic efficacy, the better the performance in English. The researcher has drawn at least five major themes based on the learners’ narrations. These are the self-directed learning is the new trend, internet connection at loss during OL, academic motivation makes learners go on, web-based educational sites as the source of information, and the student-teacher collaborative learning. This strengthens that BL is an opportunity for learners to learn amid the country’s health crisis.</p> 2022-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of English Teaching Empirical Research on Digital Literacy in English Education in Indonesian Setting in Recent 10 Years 2023-01-23T10:37:49+00:00 Parlindungan Pardede Ratna Dewanti <p>Due to its crucial significance to function in today's globally e-interpenetrated, schools are supposed to be the first institution to accelerate digital literacy competence improvement. To meet the challenge, English educators are in a strong position to contribute significantly due to the natural close link between language and digital literacy and the status of English as the current first global language. Like in other skills development programs, digital literacy skills development considerably depends on serious methodological and theoretical research. This systematic review aims at portraying the trends of research in the last decade on digital literacy integration in English Education (EE) in Indonesian context in terms of yearly distribution, research designs, research focuses, data collection methods, and the educational levels of the setting. To serve the aims, some databases were searched, through which 66 research articles were obtained. The results showed that digital literacy research in the field is still new, but it keeps on proliferating since 2020. The predominant research designs are case study and survey. Major focuses are related to the instrumental aspect of digital literacy. The studies were set at higher learning, senior high school, and junior high school levels, and none were set at the primary school level. This paper ends with recommendations for further research and for actual enactments.</p> 2022-12-30T18:27:22+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of English Teaching Translation of Adjectival Collocations in Sidney Sheldon’s “Tell Me Your Dreams” into Indonesian 2023-01-19T19:42:52+00:00 Johannes E. Joseph <p>Translating collocation is one of the most challenging tasks due to the linguistic and semantic features they have. This study analyzes the translation of the adjectival collocations of “Tell me your Dreams” into Indonesian. To be more specific, it aims at (1) discovering how English adjectival collocations are translated into Indonesian; (2) figuring out how many types of equivalence there are in the Indonesian translation from the English adjectival collocations; (3) discovering how many types of shift there are in the Indonesian translation from the English adjectival collocations; (4) figuring out whether shift happens more than equivalence or vice versa; and (5) figuring out whether the collocation translation makes the TL cohesive and coherent or not. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method because all of the data that are analyzed in this research are in form of words and sentences not numbers and it is directed to answer research questions concerning the status of the subject of the study. The result shows that equivalence dominates the translation of English collocations into Indonesian in the novel with 30 (58.8%) of the whole data, and the amount of shift is 21 (41.2%) of the whole data.</p> 2022-10-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of English Teaching An Overview of the Study of Language in the History of Philosophy (Ancient Greek to Medieval Age) 2023-01-23T10:23:58+00:00 Parlindungan Pardede <p>To English educators and researchers, having a good grasp of what a language is and how language learning takes place is important. To a certain extent, surveying the development of language studies is a good start to achieve the goal. This article is the first part of a literature review summarizing language studies taking place along the history of philosophy, starting from the ancient Greek to the postmodern era. This first part includes language studies conducted in the Ancient Greek Period up to the Medieval Age, whereas the second part will later discusses language studies carried out in the Renaissance Period, the Modern Period, and Post Modern Period. Data was gathered by surveying relevant and credible textbooks and scientific articles. The findings reveal that the initiators of the study of language issues were philosophers, not linguists. Philosophers in the Ancient Greek up to the Middle Ages had studied language as a topic of study because they need an effective language to assist them in studying philosophical ontologies and epistemology. This shows that humans never stop trying to understand language better as the need for language continuously changes to accommodate the development of human life and culture. The results of language studies in ancient Greece have provided us with various paradigms about the nature of language and micro-linguistic concepts in the form of elements of semantics, etymology, grammar, and various discourses that now become inherent parts of linguistic studies. Medieval philosophers focused on the use of straightforward, simple, and practical expressions as a language analytic method, etymological elements, and the development of Speculative Grammar.</p> 2022-10-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of English Teaching
