Engkaulah Surgaku

Di matamu menghuni bidadari
Laku eloknya menghias bilik-bilik rumah
Sejukkan suasana di segala musim

Di lengkung bibirmu berdiam cinta
Setiap kata yang keluar adalah doa
Pengiring langkah bagi suami dan anak

Peluh menguap ke udara
kala sepasang lenganmu memeluk tubuhku
Bahkan angin tak mampu bersaing

I.             INTRODUCTION
In a language course, materials are designed to support teaching and learning process. The materials include “anything which can be used to facilitate the learning of a language” (Tomlinson, 2003). They can be used to inform the learners about the language, to provide experience of the language in use, and to stimulate language use or to help learners to make discoveries about the language for themselves (Tomlinson, 2003). To aid the learners in language learning, the materials developers need to construct the materials thoughtfully in evaluating, adapting, and producing them. This is really valuable because the course materials are made to fulfill the users’ needs. Therefore, the materials developers should consider carefully who, where, and how the materials will be used.

A Summary
by Ayu Pertiwi


Since years ago, computer has become an important tool for educational field, especially for foreign language learning. It is called Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL). Several media and applications of CALL has been developed to support language learning, such as programs, articles, journals, learning sites or webs, and software to practice grammar, vocabulary, listening and pronunciations, and so on.

There are three phases of CALL development in educational field. The first one is called behaviorist where the computer is used as a tutor with audio-lingual method. Secondly, the communicative approach which focuses more on the way to use the form than on the form itself. And the current one is integrative CALL approach where texts, pictures and graphics, sounds and music, animations and video are combined. However, this latest approach is still under development.

Ringkasan Cerita

Di usianya yang sudah tua, Mr. Pandolfo membuat sebuah boneka jerami untuk menjaga tanahnya yang luas dan besar dari keluarga Buffaloni yang jahat. Boneka jerami itu ditancapkan di tengah ladang gandum. Tidak lama kemudian boneka itu dicuri orang dan akhirnya berpindah tangan selama beberapa kali hingga akhirnya jauh dari tempat asalnya.

Suatu hari, petir menyambar dan membuat sel-sel di tubuh boneka jerami hidup. Jack, seorang anak sebatang kara yang mendengar teriakannya datang menghampiri. Ia membantu boneka jerami mendapatkan sebelah kaki lagi untuk berjalan. Melihat keuletan Jack, Boneka Jerami memintanya menjadi pelayan pribadi. Setelah setuju, Tuan Boneka Jerami dan Jack pun memulai petulangannya menuju ke Spring Valey, tempat asal si Boneka Jerami.

Banyak hal yang mereka alami di sepanjang perjalanan, seperti bertemu perampok, kelompok teater, prajurit, serta sekumpulan burung. Banyak pula masalah yang mereka hadapi setiap kali singgah di suatu tempat. Sementara itu, jauh di belakangnya, Mr. Cercorelli, pengacara keluarga Buffaloni, sibuk mencari informasi tentang si Boneka Jerami dan mengikuti jejaknya.

Karena Dirimu

Lewat kelembutanmu kau ajari aku tentang kepedulian.
Lewat tatapanmu kau ajari aku tentang cinta.
Lewat sikapmu kau ajari aku tentang kasih sayang.
Dan semenjak kehadiranmu dalam hidupku,
kau membuat semuanya terasa sempurna dan cukup.

P.S: Thank you for sending me this lovely message in the morning, dear AS ^^

Literature for EFL Students

By
Ayu Pertiwi

Graduate Program
State University of Makassar


Mastering foreign language, especially English, is good for students’ future and carrier. However, it is not easy for teaching English as foreign language in Indonesia. Different forms of language between English and Bahasa Indonesia may cause negative transfer in learning process. The result of negative transfer in language is called language interference. Another problem that makes English difficult to teach is students beliefs. The students lack motivation and interest in learning English, so whatever the strategies used by the teachers, the students are not sure they can follow and master the lessons. They do not enjoy learning English because it is boring for them. In addition, the students are not participated in the learning process. They are only taught without acting directly. All the process focused on the teacher, or is called ‘teacher-centered’. Beside that, the students cannot use their English naturally because there is no other condition that obliges the students to speak or write English beside in the class.

Mimi si Kelinci

Ia diberi nama Mimi. Seekor kelinci angora betina milik saudara iparku. Sejak kehadirannya, suasana rumah menjadi lebih seru. Raziq, keponakanku yang sebentar lagi berumur 2 tahun tidak kesepian lagi karena memiliki 'teman' baru. Ia gembira melihat Mimi melompat-lompat mengelilingi teras rumah dan sesekali bersembunyi di bawah mobil ayah.

Namun, di suatu pagi Mimi mengalami peristiwa buruk.

Here I Am

I am going to write many things here, about my daily life, opinion, imagination, knowledge, or whatever. Hope you'll enjoy reading mine. Feel free to suggest or complain me nicely.
