The former deals simply with letting our eyes run over the text we are reading without having a deeper understanding of what or how it relates to life in general. On the other hand, the latter is concerned with both reading and thinking skills. Deep reading is by far the most crucial and significant endeavor to ponder on when one likes or decides to read something. The act of reading must trigger the relationship between words and mind. If this happens, reading may just become overwhelmingly rewarding because it would nourish not only one’s mind but also one’s spirit.
3. Literature review Learning to read in a foreign language is surely a demanding task. “It implies interaction between the reader and the text, a degree of knowledge of the world and determined topics, some knowledge of the target language and also the interpretation of the writer’s message which can vary from reader to reader.” (Fuenzalida, 2010, p. 4) “In the reading process, the reader is an active participant, constructing meaning from clues found in printed text.” (Shafiei Ebrahimi, 2012, p. 195) In other words, the active role of the reader constructs the meaning from the text. In the history of research, it has been agreed that reading is a very complex process that involves different factors which interact with one another. When it comes to EFL students, the difficulty of reading becomes even more complicated.
My strengths as a reader is my ability to gather great ideas and fitting them in my own words. I’m good at focusing on the main point when i 'm writing. Another strength as a writer is i 'm good at ending my conclusions, restating my main point, and connecting my paper to my own life experience. As a writer when i 'm typing i look for little mistakes i may be missing such as periods, apostrophe and commas. My weaknesses as a writer is i but too many ideas that isn 't needed in my paper.
1.4 Significance of the Study The findings of the study will import the benefit of EFL teachers considering that complex sentence comprehension plays an important role in grasping the meaning and interpreting the text reading. The results of the study will be also useful to EFL teachers in providing teaching process to help their students improve linguistic competence in acquiring dependent clauses so that students will correctly comprehend and interpret complex sentence in text reading. 1.5 Scope and Delimitation This study is focus on acquiring full and reduced forms of dependent clauses; adverb clause, adjective or relative clause, and noun clause by applying explicit and implicit instruction. Moreover, the study is confined to comparing the significant difference of the effect on applying explicit and implicit instruction. This study is limited to 80 12th-grade students both male and female during the second semester of the academic year 2015 at Suraphinphitthaya School.
To write clearly it is essential to understand the basic system of a language. In English this includes knowledge of grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. Vocabulary is also necessary, as is correct spelling and formatting. In writing, correct grammar, punctuation and spelling are key in written communications. The reader will form an opinion of you, the author, based on both the content and presentation, and errors are likely to lead them to form a negative impression.
Thus, the ability in speaking skill is a crucial and important part of second language learning and teaching process. The mastery of speaking skill in the English language is a priority for many second language or foreign language students. Even though periods of focusing on language form and enhance vocabulary are important in English language learning, but developing the students’ ability to really communicate with English in the classroom are the main goal of an English language teaching. At the end of the study, the students should be able to communicate effectively in English for study, work, and leisure outside the classroom. Therefore, it is essential that English teachers pay great attention in teaching speaking to the students.
- The role of the teacher is that of facilitator and guide. Therefore, students are encouraged to construct meaning through genuine linguistic interaction with others. To sum up, communication language teaching can help students to use the target language as much as possible. This approach places great emphasis on helping students create meaning rather than helping them develop perfectly grammatical structures. As mentioned above, my personal language teaching methodology may be described as a mixed method.
Teaching one of the main languages in the world is another world of creativity and building a bridge of communication with different kinds of cultures is one of the advantages of teaching and learning the English language. During my profession as a teacher in the future, I will try my best to assess the needs of our community socially and economically by raising responsible and educated generations that will make diverse changes in their society. By instilling the proper ways of using English as a tool to help others, students will be able to collide their intellectual abilities to solve problems and discover their personalities so that they can get more experiences in order to face the obstacles around them. Moreover, teachers are supposed
At the early stages of education a teacher should involve body gestures and signs, illustrative examples to explain basic concepts and afterwards develop more complex ideas on this basis. It is also of utmost importance to practice common colloquial phrases such as greetings, questions, idioms until the pupils feel comfortable with the phrase as the ability to build a simple conversation encourages them and makes more prepared for real communication. Moreover, a teacher should implement the use of authentic resources, for instance bus schedules, menus and especially audio tapes and video clips, to enhance the comprehension of complex content concepts. Besides, the students become accustomed to authentic language and can practice with connected speech in spoken English in self-study environment. And the last but not the least point is to establish authority in class so that students try to exercise English all of the time and know that inappropriate conduct would be suppressed in a friendly but firm manner.
This will lead to the causes, thus, revealing the best step to be taken in order to overcome the problem arose. This study has advantages on teachers as well as students. It does not only guide teachers on providing feedback to students on the errors in their writing, it also helps teachers to evaluate their instructional materials used in teaching English. As for the students, they can try to avoid making the similar error repeatedly after referring to the result of the study. Hence, this study is a useful reference for teachers and one of the guides for students to self-correct
