Abstract

SUUCIANALISMY: THE IMPLEMENTATION OF “MASTERING VOCABULARY BEFORE TEACHING” A CASE STUDY IN INTENSIVE ENGLISH COURSE OF LANGUAGE AND CULTURE DEVELOPMENT CENTER The English teaching as foreign language in Indonesia was done through decades by using Grammar-Translation method. The objective, the content and the evaluation of the teaching were mostly dominated by structure and reading. Rote learning is one of the basic principles of Grammar-Translation method. The main characteristic of rote learning is listed bilingual vocabulary memorization. According to some theorist, rote learning only provides students superficial and short-term learning words. So, it is considered less effective for improving students vocabulary acquisition in order to build their communicative skill. In contrary, the Language and Culture Development Center of Syekh Nurjati State Institute uses the rote learning to be used by students in intensive English course. This situation is necessary to be questioned since the development of language teaching has a very significant development in producing both new and modern methods, techniques and strategies for teaching vocabulary. The research is mainly conducted by qualitative methodology research. It aims to investigate the implementation of the concept of ‘Mastering Vocabulary Before Teaching’ by rote vocabulary learning in the intensive English Course program of Language and Culture Development Center (PBB) of Syekh Nurjati State Institute for Islamic Studies Cirebon. The researcher found that the students feel difficult to memorize the vocabulary. Not only they feel difficult, but also the students did not interest to do the memorization. In other side, because the rote learning only contribute superficial vocabulary understanding, thus, rote learning does not significantly help the students to reach the goal of the implementation of “Mastering Vocabulary before Teaching”. Further, here are some problems in the vocabulary selection that affect strongly to the effectiveness of the vocabulary learning. The problems contribute negatively to the students motivation to meorize the vocabulary. The vocabulary enrichment and evaluation in classroom are employed to help the students’ memorization. There are various techniques used by the lecturers for the vocabulary enrichment activities and evaluation. The research found it helps the students vocabulary learning. The researcher found that the rote learning did not help the students to acquire vocabulary significantly. The students only recognize words not to master the vocabulary. And because the rote learning is projected as the obligatory task so the students have low appreciation and motivation to memorize the vocabulary.
