In addition, due to the pandemic that surrounded the world at the beginning of 2020, schools had to switch from face-to-face to distance education; therefore, the need for technology use and expansion of online applications became inevitable. As a result of this massive change in education and the emergence of online applications as language learning tools, this evaluation study investigates Edpuzzle, Flipgrid, Padlet, and Quizlet that are created as educational applications used in English language classes. The paper starts with the hegemony of technology in education and then continues with the evaluation of these online applications. Lastly how to use these applications effectively in English as a foreign language (EFL) classrooms is discussed. It can be reported that EDpuzzle can mostly be used for authentic video sessions; Flipgrid is effective on online speaking skills; Padlet is helpful with students’ writing skills, and lastly, Quizlet is beneficial for vocabulary teaching. It can be concluded that online applications are likely to result in effective assistance of learning and practicing both for language teachers/students and learning/teaching processes.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2021-10-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Instructional Strategies Toward Real-Time Online Teaching at an Informal English Institution: An Explanatory Study on Instructional Strategies 2021-12-07T06:12:37+00:00 Stella Noviani <p>Studies on teachers’ self-regulation are abundant and still posit strategic relevance for teacher professional development. Nevertheless, such studies focusing on online learning are yet underrepresented within informal education contexts. Hence, this study aimed to investigate the teachers’ self-regulation in implementing the instructional strategies in real-time online teaching. This study was undertaken in an English course in an informal institution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the explanatory sequential method, the data were collected from sixteen teachers with different levels of classes in teaching, nine of whom are full-timers and seven part-timers. A set of questionnaires was adapted from TSRS (Teacher Self-Regulation Scale) by a five-point Likert scale to accommodate two variables, namely: (1) the strategies as self-regulated teachers, (2) the relation between the teacher’s self-regulation and instructional strategies in real-time online teaching. The other two open-ended questions were addressed to support the quantitative data. The findings demonstrate that the role of teacher’s self-regulation in teaching and implementing instructional strategies is essential in real-time online teaching. This concludes that the higher the self-regulation, the better it is for the mastery of instructional strategies and the positive output of real-time online teaching.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2021-10-05T15:49:53+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) The Effectiveness of Using Learn Social Online Platform Toward Speaking Skills of English Literature 2018 Students of Universitas Sumatera Utara 2021-12-07T06:13:23+00:00 Sri Dewi Rahayu <p>This study focuses on the effectiveness of the Learn Social online platform on the speaking skills of English Literature 2018 students of University of Sumatera Utara. The purpose of this research is to know the Learn Social online platform is effective in improving the speaking skills of students of English Literature 2018, University of Sumatera Utara. The method used in this research is a qualitative descriptive method and the indicators used in determining the effectiveness are those proposed by Slavin (2000). The results of this study indicate that three of four indicators of the Learn Social online platform are effective on students’ speaking skills, except the indicator of instruction is not yet effective. This can be seen through the results of the questionnaires that were distributed to respondents, English Literature 2018 students, University of Sumatera Utara. Four indicators are instruction (not effective), the appropriate level of instruction (effective), incentive (effective), and time (effective).</p> 2021-10-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Potential Vocabulary Growth in EMI Programs: The Cases of Accounting and Civil Engineering in Taiwanese EFL context 2021-12-07T06:12:16+00:00 Wenhua Hsu <p>English-medium instruction (EMI) has become a nationwide trend in Taiwan’s higher education institutions. Behind this rapid growth is the widespread belief that EMI provides English immersion, which facilitates incidental learning of the target language. However, not all EMI programs in EFL contexts provide the same immersion as those in the Anglosphere. English-medium university textbooks were therefore targeted as a research focus in that they offer non-English subject majors a sustainable channel for exposure to English in the EFL context. The researcher compiled two 4-million-token accounting and civil engineering textbook corpora and measured the vocabulary levels and amounts along the BNC/COCA word-frequency scale. Results show that accounting textbooks reached the 5th 1000-word-family level at 98% text coverage while civil engineering textbooks stretched to the 9th–10th 1000 level. Twelve repetitions were used as a benchmark for incidental learning. Only 1,479 word families beyond the first 3000 occurred 12+ times in the accounting corpus versus 3,397 word families in the civil engineering corpus. For EMI practitioners who are concerned with their students’ vocabulary development, the results may serve as a reference for future investigations into other disciplines.</p> 2021-10-05T21:21:39+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Pre-Service EFL Teachers and Faculty Members' Views on the Challenges and Complexities of Online Research Supervision amid COVID-19 2021-12-07T06:12:56+00:00 Parlindungan Pardede Asri Purnamasari <table width="865"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="648"> <p>Undergraduate research supervision has long been one of the most intricate learning issues due to its complexities and challenges. The policy to learn from home during COVID 19 pandemic could have increased the complexities and challenges. This study aimed at discovering the nature of problems and challenges of undergraduate research supervision in the English Education Department of Universitas Kristen Indonesia Jakarta, Indonesia. Employing a qualitative method using a content analysis approach, this study was conducted in October to November 2020 involving 5 faculty members and 15 students who participated in the research supervision held amid COVID 19. Data from the faculty members were gathered through a questionnaire and semi-structured interviews, and data from the students were gathered using a questionnaire and focus group discussions. The obtained data were analyzed using the qualitative content analysis technique. The results revealed that the students viewed the online undergraduate supervision during COVID as very complex and challenging due to their limited research and writing skills, inability to access the research fields, inadequate ICT skills for research, absence of face-to-face communication, and ICT constraints. Both supervisees and supervisors generally viewed the online research supervision was more complex and challenging than the traditional face-to-face research supervision.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> 2021-10-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Representation of Peace Value in Indonesian ELT Textbook: Critical Discourse Analysis 2021-12-07T06:11:56+00:00 Cicilia Turnip Elih Sutisna Yanto <p>Textbook can be as a medium to convey values, while teachers and learners enact as the values- carrying agents. This present study aims to investigate peace value in national ELT textbook which approved by Indonesian Ministry of Educational and Culture entitled <em>Bahasa Inggris untuk SMA</em><em>/MA/SMK/MAK</em><em> Kelas X</em><em>II</em> [English for Senior High School Grade XII]. Findings show that there are three basic sources of peace value such as inner peace (building learner’s self-concept), social peace (tolerance with differences) and peace with nature (take care of the environment). This critical discourse analysis study indicates that social practice can be identified through language. Thus, it will contribute for both students and teachers in order to be aware as value agent in ELT textbook.</p> 2021-10-07T17:58:27+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Students’ Perception In Learning English Vocabulary Through Quizlet 2021-12-07T06:11:09+00:00 Dea Nur Aprilani <p>Vocabulary learning in second and/or foreign languages is needed to make effective communication and it is impossible to use a language effectively without an adequate vocabulary and to master other skills in English. However, many senior high school students have poor knowledge of vocabulary mastery because the process of remembering vocabulary is considered bored and stressful. This study is focused to investigate the student perceptions of the use of Quizlet in learning English vocabulary. The total participation is five students from senior high school. The interview was used to obtain information and explanations related to the student perceptions of learning English vocabulary. The data was analyzed through thematic analysis for classification and summary purposes. The results showed that Quizlet is effective to learn vocabulary interestingly and it makes the students felt more enthusiastic in learning English vocabulary. Accordingly, this research recommends English teachers use Quizlet in teaching English vocabulary to students in the classroom.</p> 2021-10-12T17:28:22+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Applying Text Feature Walks Strategy in Higher Education to Improve Students’ Critical Reading Comprehension 2021-12-07T06:11:29+00:00 Mutiara Ayu <p>This study was conducted to investigate the efficacy of text feature walks strategy in helping students in higher education to improve their critical reading comprehension through the expository texts. It also explored the feedback from students related to the implementation of Text Feature Walks in the virtual classroom. There were 40 students of English Education Study Program in a private university becoming the sample in this study and they were equally divided into experimental and control groups. To measure their improvement in reading comprehension, all students were given pre- and post reading tests in the form of multiple choice. The data obtained were analyzed by using paired sample and independent sample t-tests. The results of paired sample t-test showed that there was a significant improvement in reading (Md=33.13, p=0.000) in experimental group. In addition, the result of independent sample t-test indicated that there were significant difference in reading (Md=39.70, p=0.000) of both groups.</p> 2021-10-12T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) The Progress a Pre-Service English Language Teacher Made in Her Feedback Giving Practices in Distance Teaching Practicum 2021-12-07T06:10:49+00:00 Gülten Koşar <p>As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, teaching practicum has been conducted in online learning settings in Turkey, which, in return, has made pre-service English language teachers do their practicums online. The lack of research into the effect of distance teaching practicum on pre-service English language teachers’ practices of giving feedback prompted the researcher to carry out this research. This instrumental case study aims to investigate the changes in a pre-service English language teacher’s feedback giving practices in the English lessons she taught in the distance teaching practicum and her views about how the distance teaching practicum affected her skills of providing feedback. The results obtained from the analysis of the data collected from the researcher’s notes on the pre-service English language teacher’s provision of feedback in the four online lessons she taught, post-lesson telephone interviews and end-of-study semi-structured interview indicated her teaching experiences helped her make a considerable progress in her skills in giving effective feedback. The findings pointed to the significance of distance teaching practicum in developing pre-service English language teachers’ feedback giving practices.</p> 2021-10-14T19:26:31+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching) Lens of Language and Literature Programs in the New Norm Educational Setting amidst Pandemic 2021-12-07T06:10:29+00:00 Adrian Abarquez <p>The current COVID-19 epidemic, which began in China and has nearly infected every nation globally, is one of the most recent public health catastrophes of worldwide significance. The language and literature programs in public and private schools have become more flexible due to the new standard structure that the Philippines adopted due to the Covid-19 epidemic. This study utilized a basic qualitative design under a qualitative research approach. There were six (6) English teachers as participants. The participants answered open-ended questions about language and literature programs in one's school in the new normal of education through social media platforms, Facebook messenger. The data has yielded three (3) themes: learning competencies and guides of language and literature programs, approaches and programs to language acquisition and literature appreciation, and new learning methods towards language and literature programs. Hence, the language programs sharpen students' macro abilities, which they will use in real-life situations. Literature programs also seek to help students understand and appreciate literary appreciation and analysis. The utilization of diverse techniques, programs, and competencies will allow for more practical learning. It is essential to the teacher's job that we motivate students to master these abilities. We scaffold them to help them comprehend our goal, which is to prioritize education for students to see what is unseen in the actual world.</p> 2021-10-14T20:20:38+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 JET (Journal of English Teaching)
