Through advertisements aired on television, electronic media, online, and printed media, it is easy for the public to obtain product information from various brands displaying attractive images, visuals, and texts. Indeed, the most significant influence in advertising is the use of text that can change potential consumer communities' perceptions and perspectives. The study aims to analyze the advertisement of two competing brands' advertisement of beauty products in gaining sympathy from the potential public customers. Despite the fact that some research studies have attempted to reveal the beauty advertisements' ideology from a Critical Discourse Analysis perspective, little has been done to uncover the comparative studies on local and international beauty products. To obtain the data, this study examined the advertisements of two competing beauty products that have been displayed on online media (YouTube). These advertisements were analyzed by using Critical Analysis (CDA) by Norman Fair Clough. CDA was divided into three interrelated dimensions: texts, discourse practices, and socio-cultural practices. The findings revealed that the texts in the advertisements were formulated in such a way to persuade and attract the sympathy of potential buyers. In addition, the texts were also created by elevating existing realities and shaping certain realities in society so that the advertisements achieved the ultimate goal of reaching the sympathy of the potential buyers.

Abstract:
While investigations on metacognitive awareness in reading comprehension have yielded inconsistent results despite similar instruments, there is a need to expand the previous studies particularly into Indonesian tertiary EFL context in order to validate the findings. This paper seeks to quantitatively explore perceived use of metacognitive strategies in reading academic texts through an online questionnaire administered to 66 final year EFL undergraduates in an Indonesian university. Generally, the findings suggest moderate to high use of metacognitive strategies. More specifically, the findings demonstrate a high frequency of problem-solving strategies in comparison with the global and support strategies. Least moderate perceived use of several strategies is likely to be influenced by the students’ limited academic reading experience and limited reading schemata. Therefore, this research confirms the previous research that demonstrates problem-solving strategies as mostly perceived strategies by English nonnative students in their reading. The findings also advocate the need for the teaching of several strategies that demonstrate moderate frequencies yet highly needed for academic reading purposes.

Abstract:
English with global phenomena in its function as a communication language, (Lingua Franca or ELF), has the consequent emergence of English varieties. The existence of this variety as a result of the diversity of speakers who have mother tongue (L1) differs geographically-demographically also. These varieties occur minimally in the aspects of the lexicon, grammar, and phonology. On the other hand, aspects of local wisdoms (indigenous wisdoms) have the potential to produce linguistic elements. This paper is oriented to the English variety model based on local wisdoms in the development of information technology-assisted learning materials for secondary schools (SMP). A number of potential components of local wisdoms, such as; (1) Customary Ceremonies, (2) Cultural Heritage, (3) Natural Tourisms, (4) Traditional Transportation, (5) Traditional Games, (6) Cultural Infrastructure, (7) Traditional Clothing, (8) Cultural Heritage, ( 9) Museums, (10) Cultural institutions, (11) Arts, (12) Cultural villages, (13) Arts and crafts, (14) Folklore, and (15) Children's puppets, particularly in Lombok island area becoming English learning materials for junior high schools. In the framework of implementing the 2013 curriculum effectively, this elaboration refers to regulations of Permendikbud on Curriculum 2013, Basic Competencies of Curriculum 2013, Review of Curriculum Policy in Language Subjects, Main Thoughts and Recommendations on English Curriculum 2013, and Analysis of Content Standard of English subject for junior high school and senior high school. This is also strengthened by involving relevant institutional elements and the association of teacher council through MGMP (Musyawarah Guru Mata Pelajaran). Then, materials related to information technology must involve experts in the field of Information Technology and Computer Science who have competence in so-called field. This is done by looking at the diversity of local wisdoms through translation from the first language (Indonesian/regional) to the target language (English). In the process of language translation, the theory that is referred to is the theory of Larson (1998), Meaning-Based Translation which is about the features and relations of semantic components as characteristics possessed by all languages, which consist of; Objects (Nouns and Pronouns, Events (Verbs), Attributes (Adjective and Adverb) and Relations (Conjunctions, Prepositions, Articles, Enclitics, etc.). While in relation with jargon and technical terms, this paper refers to Wuster (1979) theory views that the size of the translation of messages between two languages is based on the characteristics and concept of the message from the elements of meaning.

Abstract:
Assessing Thai Nursing College Students’ Speaking Ability Through The Perspectives of Their Indonesian Counterparts The need for improving speaking skills is inevitable in some areas of majors. Nursing students are expected to have a good command of English due to the available opportunities to work abroad. The existence of an academic exchange program could be viewed as one of the alternative learning activities that may fit the needs of the learning experience for EFL students. This study was a qualitative research that aimed at finding communication problems encountered by Indonesian nursing students in their interactions with their counterparts during the academic exchange program held in a nursing college in Thailand. The results of the study showed that the communication problems encountered by Indonesian nursing students due to Thai students speaking ability were in terms of mispronunciations, incorrect word choices, and grammatical errors. Subsequently, it was also found that Thai nursing students used several strategies to cope with their speaking problems by asking for assistance, miming, and making repetition. This research eventually suggests a number of recommendations for students to 1). avoid using their first language even though they communicate with their own friends in the group. 2). share as much information as possible to activate their speaking strategies. 3). have self-confidence in all interactions with TNS. 4). avoid unnecessary jokes, mocking TNS due to different cultural values. Subsequently, a number of activities prior to the academic exchange should also be conducted in terms of 1). practices in formulating questions, 2.) introduction to Thai culture, 3). Introduction to Thai spoken English.

Abstract:
The implementation of bilingual education programs in the Indonesian secondary school context has experienced considerable changes in the last decade. In this case, the enactment of the International Standards School (ISS) program that propelled the students to experience bilingual education programs at schools was discontinued by the government in 2015. Consequently, the discontinuation of the ISS program leads to the scarcity of studies in examining the progress and effectiveness of bilingual education programs in Indonesia. At the same time, the phenomenon of private schools that offer bilingual programs has been significantly more popular after the ISS program was abolished. However, there is a lack of established instruction on how to implement bilingual programs in such schools. Therefore, this paper aims to conceptualise the implementation of bilingual education programs through the implementation of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Genre-Based Approach (GBA). Drawing on the relevant literature, this paper examines a new perspective in bilingual education programs by considering the suitability between CLIL and genre theory in the Indonesian secondary school context. Further, this paper also provides a unit of work/syllabus sample that incorporates both CLIL and GBA. Ultimately, future implications in responding to the enactment of bilingual education programs in Indonesia are also discussed.

The problems of this research were the students tended to use the Indonesian language structure when translating. Besides, they wrote a false word order in their sentences and also misuse the tenses for the existing sentences. This research aimed to identify and describe the students’ errors in the form of interlingual errors and intralingual errors. The qualitative research design was used to analyze the data. There were 70 samples of students’ writing tasks which were taken from three state senior high schools and three private senior high schools in Sintang city. The finding showed the aspects that more influenced the learners made errors when transferring the first language to the target language were identified as two major aspects. The errors caused by the students’ first language are interlingual. While the errors caused by the structure of the target language are called intralingual errors. To identify the interlingual errors the researchers used two subcategories. They were the use of the L1 structure and the omission of BE form. The most error in interlingual errors was caused by the L1 structure. Meanwhile, the researchers used four subcategories to identify intralingual errors. They are overgeneralization, ignorance of rule restriction, incomplete application of rules and false concepts hypothesized. The most error in intralingual errors happened because of the learner’s limited knowledge of the target language. Based on these findings, Teachers can solve the problems by providing explicit and implicit corrective feedback, introducing the grammar system of both Indonesian and English when teaching grammar.

Abstract:
A language has two different and integrated skills, the receptive skills and the productive skills. Surprisingly, a speaking is a part of the productive one, as one of the main skills of all. It is also categorized as the micro ability salient for an effective communication and a global means of communication within both social interaction as well as digital communication. The development of the micro ability must have been considered by paying attention toward the principles of language learning and teaching; needs-based curriculum, learning methods, and the theoretical basis construction. The strong consideration of the basic principles of language and teaching gives the nuance and the insights towards both language teachers, curriculum makers, as well. The use of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) reflected from what is rooted in Hymes’ theory emphasizes on Communicative Competence as a social interaction and functional rules of human language (Constructivism Theory). Whereas the Chomsky’s notion of Communicative Competence based on the psycholinguistic perspective depicting a language has two concepts, namely competence and performance (Nativist Theory). Finally, a language is seen as a phenomena observable and even process of automaticity. It focuses on the relationship of stimuli-responses by strengthening that relationship through more exercises / practices.
