Play can be a natural way for children to relieve stress and work through different emotions and experiences. In addition, play presents a natural opportunity for children to share information and knowledge. Children can communicate verbally, using words or their bodies, postures and other non-verbal cues and these messages can be simple or more complicated. Play is a child’s work, and just like adults need to concentrate while working. Children might become very involved while playing
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
The positive impact of education has proven as one of the most important factors for every human. In Chapter 4: “Education” of the book The Language of Composition by Renée H. Shea, different views on education become apparent. Moreover, our schools may not serve the goals of true education because of the way students participate in teachings, why and how the teachers teach, and the way the students get taught to comprehend information given to them. Firstly, in “I Know Why The Caged Bird Cannot Read” by Francine Prose, Prose tries to persuade the audience that schools need to have students participate in reading books that have a meaning or give the students skills they will need in life. She believes that English classes in schools lack in giving the students literature that deems appropriate for their age.
From my experience as a student I was not good at grammar worksheets. Therefore I always hated going to English class. While it is very important for students to learn the grammar rules there are other ways for them to learn besides memorization and grammar worksheets. During class a student made a suggestion to use grammar worksheets sparingly. This student explained to use the worksheets has a foundation for learning the grammar to build off
The books that high school students read during class do not serve the correct purpose to the students. Students should read more complicated books. “ Great novels can help us master the all-too-rare skills of tolerating- of being able to hold in mind- ambiguity and contradiction” (Prose). Prose basically says that if the books that high school students read were more complicated, they would consider being more open minded to different concepts and interpret the author’s words more closely. In the article, “Superman and Me,” Sherman J. Alexie Jr., a writer that graduated from Washington State University, wrote, “ I loved those books, but I also knew that love had only one purpose.
Communicative competence is one of the vital abilities required for not only a successful career but also a happy life. Generally our Syllabi at the Schools don’t ensure that the students learn English in the proper order i.e. LRSW. Speaking is not given due importance in schools. So in spite of spending about fourteen years in learning English many students are reluctant to converse in English.
Last, students’ difficulty related to spelling, punctuation and capitalization. Moreover, as stated in the study, even though the quality of the students’ test is satisfactory, but the students still have problem in composing the text such as unable to transfer and develop their idea into a written form well, fail to show well-organized writing, did not write a list of their ideas; they just directly wrote what they thought without planning, the students’ insufficient vocabularies, and the students' habit to put the words which were unsuitable contextually.

Therefore, speaking is a very important skill to get to the carrier and education. (Ridyani: 2009) The Indonesian government supports the subjects taught in English from the start of primary school, although students learn English at school with quite a long time, many of them still have many problems in speaking. In fact, the students difficult to speak actively in English classrooms, they tend to be passive and just be passive speakers.

(INSERT Homer’s work ) The discussion in the current paper has aimed to respond to the research questions posed in the first chapter. The third question asked about Why do CHE students fail to obey the English-Only Policy inside the class? This study found that the reason why students failed to obey it because most of the students are lack of confidence in speaking English and they are scared that some of their classmates might laugh at them and might bully them if they can’t pronounce their English properly. And also they have some problems in terms of their grammar, speaking English fluently and their vocabulary.
