National Examination

   This morning, March 30th, 2010, the SMP students of 9th grade passed the 2nd day of National Examination,  the  Subject was English. We know that for Indonesian students and people English is still as foreign language. It is different with what Malaysian, Indian or Singapore students suppose that English is as their second language. So they use it in their daily life. Of course it gives big different influences, as a foreign language, our students find difficulties in getting real community practice and use it. But for people who use English as their second language, even they use English in most of their daily conversations.
   So we find in years that English always becomes the most difficult subject in schools and most students who failed in national examination because of it. Although nowadays after we have many TV and Radio channels that makes English programs and news, so our students find real English conversations around them. But it seems that it hasn't shown good result......
What do you think .... I hope the English teachers have many methods and ways to change this bad image..... And they can show through the result of National Examination, that English will not become the biggest reason of students failure in this year National Examination. Hope it doesn't become the most difficult subject anymore...... Good luck ....
I have material  about kinds of Learning Models, open here.

Frankly, I feel so upset after analyzing the English UN items. Most of the items are too difficult for my students. It seems that the vocabulary level is too high for them. You used to be an English teacher. I know you know exactly the condition of our students living in rural areas. Now I just can hope that there'll be a miracle.
Anyhow, your present post is very inspiring and I’ve just downloaded the attachment file.

Yes Sir, I really understand what you feel, I know well about it but we can't be hopeless or despairing, always make evaluation for better ways of teaching.
I am also afraid, if the smp english teachers (4 english teachers told me like you think)find that it's so difficult especially in text n vocabulary, so do our students, even more ....
Ya we hope a miracle will come to us... the power of our praying

Pak Mujib you are right, and your English is very good. That's what I want to say, that English teachers have to work hard to change that image (English is difficult) by designing many scenario of fun English learning, because according to Indonesian English is foreign language, it means that most of us don't use English in our daily conversation, so it makes it difficult for them.

Assalamu’alaikum………,,,
Yes mom,, I very agree with your opinion..
Because I also think that Indonesian people majority still consider that English is the something difficult. It’s getting more difficult when the students feel uncomfortable when they are studying English. And moreover for the student who will participate National Exam, they think English lessons is a burden. I mean they get the feeling from their teachers who make the bad atmosphere in learning process. Yeah.. I think sometimes their teachers make it because their teachers are getting the problem from house or many students don’t understand so as to make the teacher gets angry.
Because of it, I hope the English teachers can be more understand in anything condition, they can always make the nice atmosphere, give good influence and result of learning process. I also hope the English teachers can motivate the students to do the best and change their (students) perception that English is the difficult thing, because begin from it, English can be the nice thing….,
Good Luck for all English Teacher….,
Wassalamu’alaikum…..,
