Abstract:
Altruism in the volunteer community is often associated with volunteers taking action in the volunteer community. Altruism is giving voluntary assistance to others without expecting anything in return. This study describes the factors influencing altruism and motivation for volunteer altruism, as well as the impact of altruism in building social solidarity in Siaga Peduli Magelang. This study is qualitative with a case study approach. The informants of this study are Siaga Peduli Magelang administrators who have been involved in volunteer activities for at least one year. The results of the study indicate that there are factors influencing altruism in this community, namely empathy, self-satisfaction, and belief in world justice, that goodness will be rewarded in kind by God. The motivation for volunteer altruism in the Siaga Peduli Magelang community is closely related to the empathy that drives the prosocial behavior of the informants. The motivation for prosocial behavior in the Siaga Peduli Magelang community is divided into pleasure and pressure dimensions. There is an impact of altruism in building social solidarity in Siaga Peduli Magelang. Altruism in volunteers is deeply embedded so that it increases social solidarity to continue to contribute to the field of volunteerism.

Abstract:
English as an international language has an essential role in the world of tourism, as one of the most important capitals for workers in the tourism sector, including those classified as a lower class, such as acung traders, masseurs, parking attendants, shop or stall assistants, and so on. Initial observations showed that these tourism workers generally used market English or ‘Balinese English’ in their daily profession, which is called Balish in this article. Balish used by tourism workers has been ‘naturalized’ by adopting some features of local languages, especially Balinese and Indonesian, such as lexicon, grammar, and expressions/phrases. This article discussed the Balish lexicon used by tourism workers in the Tanah Lot Tourism Area, Bali, to improve their welfare.

Abstract:
This study explored the competence of Saudi EFL students in the use of English modality. It aimed to: 1) Identify Saudi EFL students’ level regarding use of modal verbs; 2) Identity the modal(s) they use most accurately; 3) Examine whether there is a significant difference in their ability attributed to the semantic function expressed by modality; and 4) Determine whether students’ level impacts their competence in the use of modals. An existing test was adapted, developed, and administered to 31 students at three universities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Findings revealed students’ low proficiency in the use of modals—only 24.35% of the test items were correctly answered. Might was the most correctly used modal—37.09% of the students used it accurately. The study found significant differences between students’ use of modals attributed to the sematic function. Significant differences were also found between the use of modals of possibility and obligation for the sake of possibility, and between volition and obligation for the sake of obligation. However, no significant difference between students’ responses attributed to the study level was reported. The study emphasized greater academic space for the component of English modals and adoption of learner-appropriate pedagogies.

Abstract:
Sichuan Opera is a traditional Chinese opera in Chongqing. It is the most well-known local opera in Sichuan and a cultural symbol. This is a cultural symbol passed down through generations of performers. This makeup reflects the personality traits and aesthetic sensibilities of the Sichuan people, as well as the traditional Chinese opera facial makeup art. As a result, Sichuan Opera distinguishes itself from other operas and has become a global symbol of China's strength and resilience. Sichuan Opera facial makeup has a distinct artistic shape, vibrant colours, and intricate decorative patterns. Through their facial makeup, the characters' invisible, abstract and complex inner worlds, thoughts and emotions are displayed incisively and vividly. The pattern design of Sichuan Opera facial makeup reflects the artist's perception of life and opera characters, and it has both artistic and practical value. This paper aims to uncover the artistic value of the Sichuan Opera facial mask's graphic expression through a detailed analysis of the facial makeup structure, lines, and colours. It is no longer limited to opera, but is now widely used as a modelling tool in modern design.
