Abstract

Euis Nurul Aeni. 14111320094. SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH TEACHERS’ PERCEPTION TOWARDS ENGLISH TEACHING IN BILINGUAL AND MULTILINGUAL CONTEXT Teaching English as a foreign language puts the teachers into crucial aspect since it gives an extra challenge with the existence of Sundanesse and Bahasa Indonesia. In other hand, their perception influences the way they perceive English teaching. So, this research is intended primarily to explore senior high school teachers’ perception towards English teaching in bilingual and multilingual context specifically at SMAN 2 Majalengka. This study is aimed to investigate their perception in three point of views; linguistic, psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic perspective. As a result, the study is positioned into a qualitative research. Furthermore, the qualitative study is conducted to observe their perception through interview, questionnaire, and classroom observation. The researcher conducts interview, classroom observation and member checking as questionnaire to collect the data. Here, data taken from English teachers at SMAN 2 Majalengka as the source will be analyzed, interpreted and represented descriptively. In addition, the finding shows that English teachers perceive that learners’ mother tongue has a great role in English teaching even though sometimes in may cause harmful for learners’ development. However, the use of L1 which is contributive has been agreed. As consequences, English classroom instruction combines the use of English as target language and learners’ mother tongue whether it is Sundanesse or Bahasa Indonesia. Moreover, the finding also presents that FLA is believed for being a tool for learners to learn English even though the English teachers argue that foreign language learning can be started as early as possible to maximize learners’ golden age. Additionally, the teachers believe that learners’ background knowledge is contributive to English teaching and learning as a tool to connect information exists in learners’ mind and new information from classroom. Correspondingly, classroom observation shows the use of prior knowledge in various terms to explain the content of teaching. The last, the English teachers at SMAN 2 Majalengka argue that learners’ culture and identity can be involved in classroom setting since it reflects who learners are and where learners’ come from. In this regard, majority learners are Sundanesse so that the difference among learners’ background does not seems to influence much in English teaching and learning. Furthermore, the switching among languages in classroom activities is used for many reasons which is applied mostly for message repetition and qualification. Key words : English teachers, perception, bi- and multilingual, linguistic, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic.
