Based on this, this study aims to analyze the types of student engagement shown by EFL students in online learning via WhatsApp at one of senior high school in Garut. To achieve this goal, a qualitative reasearch was conducted in the form of a case study design with a total of one class of 3rd grades of senior high school in Garut. The data collection technique used in this study was non-participant observation which was carried out for two meetings. The result reveals that there are three types engagament are found, namely cognitive engagement, behavioral engagement, and affective engagement, and the most dominantly type is cognitive engagement. However, the three types of student engagement were only shown by a few students who were involved during the learning process. It means that it can be categorized that student engagement in online learning using WhatsApp is uneven and also very low. As an implication, teachers must be able to get all students to engage in conversations on WhatsApp. In addition, teachers also have to build students emotions during the learning process because this type of engagement is not found in students. Therefore, the teachers are expected to investigate strategies and also ways to make all students more engaged<br>in online learning on WhatsApp media.</p> 2023-02-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Final Year Students' Perceptions on the Online Corrective Feedback Given by Teacher on Their Academic Paper 2023-02-10T14:55:00+00:00 Aceng Nawawi Ayu Listiani Eka Nurma <p>The emergence of Covid-19 has highlighted the importance of online corrective feedback on the students’ works. However, the contribution of such feedbacks on the students’ final papers which basically requires a thorough explanation remains under investigated. This study is aimed at analyzing the students’ perception of online corrective feedback given by the English teacher<br>on their academic paper. To achieve the objective, the interviews were conducted to 4 final years students’ of English department to determine whether the use of online corrective feedback was practical in assisting learners to improve their writing from the first draft to the final draft. The findings showed that the students indicated diverse responses. Some students claimed that online<br>corrective feedback is effective and, while some others said no. Some who stated that online corrective feedback is effective have the reasons that it is caused by the time efficiency and accessibility. Meanwhile, the ineffectiveness is believed to be caused by the quality of the feedback that is not complete enough. This study provides the implication that the lecturer should focus more on the contents while delivering the online corrective feedback.</p> 2023-02-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) An Analysis of Teacher Talk in Teaching EFL Students 2023-03-18T07:18:55+00:00 Dilla Nurunnisa Dinda Aura Hera Yani Putri Nurul <p>This study aims to find out the types of teacher talk used in teaching English procedure text in the classroom.

In order, criticizing has a purpose to manage the students more interested and meaningful in the classroom.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Teacher Understanding of Mall Implementation in Teaching Pronunciation for College Students 2023-03-18T07:18:55+00:00 Aldy Hakim Herlambang Novia Julianti N Halza Nurbasyariah I Wanda Nissha Ul Hasanah <p>MALL offers excellent potential for university students' language learning. As confirmed by numerous studies conducted on utilizing mobile technology in language learning classrooms. However, amid modernization and the advancement of technology, not all educators can fully comprehend MALL-based learning and its implementation inside the classroom. The present study employed a case study research design to investigate the teachers' understanding of MALL implementation in teaching pronunciation for college students. The participants in this study are MALL-user lecturers. The data were collected from an open-ended interview and analyzed using inductive stages. The findings indicated that the teacher's understanding of implementing MALL in teaching pronunciation is sufficient and competent enough to implement the correct way of MALL in the teaching-learning process. The results also reveal that MALL has its own vital merits and disadvantages to be employed in the teaching and learning process. Furthermore, the results suggest that educators must set a learning media perimeter prior to the MALL process in teaching pronunciation. The results of this study are expected to enrich the pronunciation learning process and assist teachers and students in properly employing MALL inside the classroom to reach the maximum learning output.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) An Analysis ofTeacher and StudentInteraction Patternsin an Online Learning Context 2023-03-18T07:49:35+00:00 Salma Fitria Risni Trianistia Trisia Ananda Rinjani <p>The discussion regarding the interaction patterns between teacher and student is not new. However, the discussion of how the interaction patterns between teacher and student in the online setting is not much studied. Therefore, this study is an attempt to analyze types of interaction patterns the teacher used in Zoom Media. To achieve this goal, non-participant observation was used to collect the data. The data were analyzed qualitatively by recording, transcribing, hospitalizing, analyzing, and interpreting. The data show that there are three types of interaction patterns that were found; closed-ended teacher questioning, full-class interaction, and open-ended teacher questioning. It’s reflected that teachers mostly focus on how to make two-way communication. However, the development of students to become more independent is not explored during the learning process. As the implication, the teacher has to find out the ways to teach in order to apply all types of interaction patterns in the learning process.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) An Analysis of The Thematic Progression Patterns in The Abstract of The Undergraduate Thesis 2023-03-18T07:49:26+00:00 Dede Mijar Raisya Nabila Kurnia Salma Ladina <p>The analysis of thematic progression in various texts has been carried out by many researchers. However, the study of thematic progression and its contribution towards the coherence and cohesion of the texts particularly the ones such as the undergraduate thesis abstracts is rarely done. This study aims to examine the use of thematic progression<br>patterns and its contribution to the coherence and cohesion of the undergraduate thesis abstract. To achieve the objective, the study employed qualitative research in which the study involved eight abstracts to be analyzed. The aforesaid abstracts were drawn from the 8 high achieving undergraduate students in one of the universities in Garut for the past two years 2020-2021. The data were analyzed by following Eggins, Halliday and Hasan’s framework. The findings showed that from the three patterns, Reiteration was found to be the most frequent pattern in the students writing (48,78%), followed by the Zig-zag pattern and the Multiple Rheme pattern by 39% and 12,2% respectively. Meanwhile, in regard to the contribution of the patterns toward the coherence and the cohesion of the abstract, the results showed that the usage of thematic progression and the cohesive device can contribute to making the thesis abstract coherence and cohesion. The study concluded that understanding the thematic progression is important because it can make the writing have more coherence and cohesion.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Students' Perceptions of The Cake App as A Medium to Teach Vocabulary 2023-03-18T08:01:38+00:00 Astri Puji Wahyuni Restu Hidayat Mita Nurdianti <p>In the 21st century, the use of technology in the teaching and learning process is undeniable. In the literature, researchs that focus on investigating the effects of technology on learning have been widely carried out. However, most research only provides a quantitative account. The views regarding the topics particularly from the students who are one of the key actors in the teaching and learning process have not been much investigated. This study aims to discover students' perceptions on the use of Cake Application as a medium to teach vocabulary. This study utilized a case study design and involved 5 students in one of the Elementary Schools in Garut. The participants who had been selected using purposive sampling were asked to join the interview and answer several guiding questions. The students' responses were analyzed qualitatively. The results showed that the students shared the same agreement regarding their views on the Cake Application as the medium in teaching vocabulary. The students agreed that Cake Application can increase their motivation in learning which eventually helps them in improving their vocabulary mastery. The results suggest that Cake Application is potential to be applied in teaching vocabulary.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Teacher’s Understanding of The Scientific Approach Implementation in English Learning 2023-05-22T13:50:42+00:00 Ziya Rizka Nur Azizah Lusiana Putri Ananda Resti Siti Masitoh Putri Indriani <p>Due to the importance of scientific approach to be applied in the English teaching context, this study is an endeavor to Analyze teacher’s understanding of Scientific Approach in English teaching.

Then the data were qualitatively analyzed using the framework of Flanders Interaction Analysis Categories (FIAC) which focused on the indirect type consisting of accepting feeling, praising or encouraging students, accepting or using students’ idea, asking questions, giving directions, criticizing and justifying authorities. The data reveal that all categories of teacher talk are identified with the similar portion in the stage of classroom procedure/ rule. However, the interaction in the stage of ‘knowledge or ideas sharing’ is not discovered. To conclude, the quality of interaction should be prioritized by English teachers, especially in cognitive engagement.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Multimodal Analysis of Songs and Images in An Elementary English Classroom 2023-03-18T08:23:35+00:00 Siti Fadia Nurhikam Agisni Rahmayanti Risfi Aulia <p>The potential effects the use of multimodal in the classroom have been widely recognized by many researchers.

However, there are relatively few studies that discussing the challenges of teaching listening especially in online setting. Therefore, this study aims to investigate lecturer challenges of online learning instruction in listening class. The data in this study were collected qualitatively using semistructured interview conducted to one the EFL lecturer in university in West Java. The data were analyzed inductively using the stage of recording or interpreting. The data showed that lecturer’s difficulties in listening via online are about determining the proper material as well as the stages in teaching listening. It is further explained that the lecturer had problem in matching and adjusting the learning objectives with the audio and the students’ understanding. Due to the limited interactions between the lecturer and students directly, the lecturer had complication in determining the right material which fit to teaching objective as students’ level of thinking. Thus, lecturers must prepare materials that are suitable for online learning conditions and packaging in such a simple and easy- to-understand instruction for the students. Regarding to that phenomenon’s, the lecturers should carry out to explore the material and the packaging, such as, the lecturers can use TED-ED, Learning Management System, or Edmodo in the online class.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) English Lecturers' Perceptions on DST in Teaching Grammar 2023-03-18T08:58:12+00:00 Raihan Hafizh Saskia Putri Nurpratiwi Shabira Khoirotun Hisaan Amatulloh Novita Sri Lestari <p>Most of the literature has focused on using DST as a medium for teaching story-based text to students, such as narrative and descriptive text. Then is from it this study aims to investigate DST with a different focus: how English lecturers perceive DST in grammar teaching. This study used a case study design with the interview as the main instrument to collect the data. The methods were conducted in one high educational institution in Garut, Indonesia. The participant in this study was consisted of one lecturer using DST to teach grammar to college students. The findings showed that the lecturer has more positive views about using DST in teaching grammar. The positive views such as improving students' grammar comprehension, increasing the students' engagement, and relaxing the class environment when teaching grammar are the main sights of the lecturer. However, the negative views are focused on the technical issues when applying DST in the classroom. Thus, not all teachers can immediately understand the use of DST, so we need to provide direction on how to use DST. DST is a helpful tool for transferring material in teaching grammar.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Lecturers’ Difficulties In Combining Google Classroom And Whatsapp In Teaching Of English Essay Writing 2023-03-18T09:02:08+00:00 Desi Ratna Sari Putri Salsabila Revi Herdianti <p>Google classroom and whatsapp are the most widely used platforms in the teaching and learning process during the Covid-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the discussi on of how these two platforms are combined in teaching is still very low. Departing of that points,this study aims to investigate the problem that face by the lecturers in Combining Google Classroom And Whatsapp. Qualitative research embracing case study design was employed in this research. Theinstruments are semi structured interview conducted to two EFL lecturers in one of University of West Java. The result reveals that there are two main difficulties. First, the lecturers were difficult to develop good interaction with the student. More than that, the lecturers felt that the engagement of students was very low. Second, the lecturers had barriers in managing the time during teaching program. Specifically, the lecturers were aware that combining google classroom and whatsapp which still remained the promblem in conveying the material since there was no enough feature. To conclude, combining two applications in the teaching and learning process iss not adequate. Therefore, other applications are needed to complete the teaching and learning process.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) The Use of Digital Story-Telling in Teaching Narrative Texts at One of the Senior High Schools in Garut 2023-03-18T09:08:39+00:00 Novi Risnawati Anisa Sri Wahyuni Ayu Siti Saadah <p>The preliminary observation showed that senior high school students struggle when they are required to create narrative texts on their own. The study seeks to investigate the effect of digital storytelling on the senior high school student's ability in writing narrative text. This study which was conducted using a quasi-experimental design involved 18 first-grade students who were assigned to join two different groups (i.e. experimental and control groups). The experimental group received the treatment by using digital storytelling, while the control group used conventional instruction. The sample was asked to take part in both the pre-test and post-tests before and after the instruction. The data were analyzed by using statistical procedures using SPSS 20. The findings showed a difference between the experimental group and the control group in writing a narrative text, where the experimental group had an increase in writing ability. The effect may stem from the features of the digital storytelling which are in the form of videos, which makes learning to produce narrative texts easier for pupils. Further research investigating the same topic in schools with complete facilities and a larger number of participants is highly recommended.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) THE USE OF THE DUOLINGO PLATFORM IN DEVELOPING SEVENTH GRADE'S VOCABULARY MASTERY 2023-03-18T09:08:24+00:00 Neng Tsaltsa Robiah Adawiah Rahmawati Fahmi Ramadhan <p>The motivating basis of this study was the fact that many students struggle to learn vocabulary.

The students in both groups were given pre-test and post-test before and after the instruction. The data were calculated statistically assisted by SPSS 24. The finding showed that Duolingo positively contributed to developing the students' vocabulary. The possible<br>explanation for this contribution is probably due to the relevance of the applications towards the nature of the students to require more visual material. This study concludes that the involvement of technology helps in vocabulary learning.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Expanding EFL Student’s Vocabulary Through Tiktok Application In 4th Semester English Education Study Program, Universitas Subang 2023-03-18T09:23:29+00:00 Indi Amelia Irma Siti Fatimah Salma Nurul Fitria Indri Antika Fitriani Ginanjar Desti Wina Widiyarti <p>TikTok is a video sharing social network that is currently popular and widely used by many people. Tiktok has a unique feature of short videos in various genres. The videos produced from this platform have been widely used in various contexts including classroom teaching. It is possible that TikTok can have a role in attracting students' attention and introducing them to new English vocabulary through several selected videos from the app. Most students can barely pay attention to their teacher during offline or online classes. This may prevent them from actively participating in class activities. TikTok videos are shorter in duration with interesting and informative content, which of course can be used as teaching materials. The results showed that students showed increased levels of attention, interest and understanding of the subject matter taught in class through TikTok videos.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Using Games to Teach Young Learners Vocabulary 2023-03-18T09:25:44+00:00 Mar’atus Sholikhah Desi Nopiyanti <p>Teaching English to young learners has become a phenomenon in Saudi Arabia over the last few decades.

Teaching young learners is not the same as teaching adults since children learn in their own unique way. Because children really like playing and having fun, the learning and<br>teaching process should be adapted to their personalities. Music is one of the types of entertaining activities for them, and songs are the most popular form of music that children are familiar with. Songs are very crucial in the development of young children<br>who are learning a second language. Through this paper, the writers want to show that with the help of songs, children may improve their language abilities such as speaking, listening, and writing.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) Implementation of the Role Play Method to Improving Students’ Speaking Skill 2023-03-18T09:48:56+00:00 Indi Amelia Indri Antika Fitriani <p>Students must be able to communicate in English in order to grasp the significance of English as an international language. However, not all students can communicate in English. The approach utilized does not stimulate speaking skills, hence it is vital to establish an English method to help pupils improve their speaking ability. It is used by almost everyone from all over the world to communicate in both formal and informal contexts. English language proficiency is critical in international interactions to be able to engage in the larger world of work, whether it be entrepreneurship or employees in domestic and international companies. The capacity to hold a conversation in a foreign language is used to assess speaking abilities. This reality leads instructors, particularly teachers and parents, to think that students and their children must develop speaking skills. Based on the above reasons, researchers concentrated on teaching English rather than teaching about the English Language. The focus is on increasing students' communicative abilities as well as their language abilities. Teachers must design situations to teach languages in a dynamic, active, and interesting manner in order to increase students' communicative capacities. Students frequently encounter various issues while learning to speak. The problem is that their native language makes it difficult for them to communicate in other languages. A lack of enthusiasm to practice a second language in ordinary speech is another cause. Many approaches can be used, including role playing, which has been shown to be successful in teaching speaking in numerous studies. As a result, researchers are interested in examining the use of role playing in English Proficiency learning to increase speaking skills. We also want to know about the advantages and challenges that students confront.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) A Portrait of Task-Based Language Teaching in English Speaking Classroom in Junior High School 2023-03-18T09:52:55+00:00 Melinia Hardin Wandi Koswara Noviani Sri Madani Delisa Febriyanti <p>While much has been investigated about task-based language teaching (TBLT), research examining the application of task-based language teaching for junior high school students is still limited. This study analyzes how the implementation of task-based language teaching in learning English Speaking in a junior high school in West Java. This is a qualitative research with a case study design and involves an English teacher who has several years of experience in teaching English Speaking on a task-based. In data collection, the observation is made to obtain data, then analyze it with inductive data. The findings show that there are<br>incompatibility between lesson plans, task-based language teaching theory and practices carried out by teachers in the classroom. In addition, the teacher was too focused on giving<br>tasks that the implementation of teaching was poor. However, the teacher could apply it<br>properly if the teacher understood and learned more about task-based language teaching. By<br>discovering information about how to apply task-based language teaching, and not focusing too<br>much on tasks, teachers could apply task-based English learning according to the established<br>theory. Moreover, to obtain information about TBLT, it is necessary for teachers to attend<br>seminars or trainings about TBLT that understand how the concept and application of TBLT<br>are properly carried out.</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) STUDENTS’ PERCEPTIONS OF PODCAST AS A LEARNING MEDIA TO IMPROVE THEIR LISTENING SKILL 2023-03-18T09:47:29+00:00 Lailatuzzahrollathifah Ainun Rahayu Putri Arista Apriliani <p>Despite the great number of research that focuses on the effects of Podcast on the student learning, the qualitative analysis that accounts for the students' voices on the role of Podcast in their listening activity is still under investigated. This paper is aimed at identifying the students’ perceptions on the use of podcast as media to improve their listening skill. To achieve the objective, the qualitative study was conducted to 2 participants of English Education Department in one of Universities in Garut who were chosen by using purposive sampling. The participants were asked to join the interview and answer 7 guiding questions. The data which were analysed using qualitative analysis showed that the students shared positive views on the topic. In this study, most of the participants claimed that the use of podcast have helped them increase their English listening skill.

The process of learning a second language might come via classes, social interactions, or natural acquisition. The success of learning a second language is also greatly influenced by internal factors such as the role of the first language, motivation, and attitude of the learners. The paper's findings support the hypothesis that aging is correlated with a decline in learners' memory. As long as the person concerned has a desire to utilize a foreign language or second language for the purpose of integrating and socializing, age cannot be used as a criterion for the success rate of studying a second/foreign language other than the mother tongue.&nbsp;</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) THE PHENOMENON OF THE USE OF BILINGUALISM AMONG MILENIALS 2023-03-18T10:01:20+00:00 Anugrah Ilham Sanusi Lusi Nur Sahda Luciana Suciati Dewi <p>Bilingualism is the ability to speak two languages.

Communication will run smoothly if the message conveyed by the speaker can be understood by the other person. If communication does not run<br>smoothly then there is a disturbance in communication. An example of a language disorder is broca's aphasia. According to the theory (Saputri, 2018) Aphasia is a type of language disorder caused by damage to the brain's function as a language processor. Language disorders are disorders that affect a person's ability to produce abnormal speech. The purpose of this study was to determine the differences between Broca's aphasia in children and adults. The method of data collection in this study was to analyze two YouTube videos about the differences between patients with Broca's aphasia in children and adults.

In psychology, these attributes have traditionally been called "individual differences." The scope<br>of individual learner differences is broad--ranging from creativity to learner styles and anxiety--yet there is no current, comprehensive, and unified volume that provides an overview of the considerable amount of research conducted on various language learner differences, until now. Each chapter in this new volume focuses on a different individual difference<br>variable. A key concern for the author has been to define the various learner factors as measurable constructs and therefore the discussion includes a summary of the most famous tests and questionnaires in each domain.

Both Processes are one of the three main areas of study for language and cognition in psycholinguistics. The goal of psycholinguistics is to develop theories that can explain how our brains process language. If you follow a set of written instructions or speak to yourself internally through your inner voice, you are almost unable to act or think without utilizing language. Like no other talent, language permeates our minds and our daily lives. Before, linguists' theorized rules served as a way for psycholinguistics to explain how we comprehend and use language (Fodor, Bever, &amp; Garrett, 1974).</p> 2023-03-18T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Proceeding Virtual English Education Students Conference (VESCO) SCHOOL OF CHILD SOCIALIZATION AND FAMILY 2023-03-18T10:26:41+00:00 Nina Rosita Fadilah <p>Humans are social creatures that cannot be separated from the interaction of their fellow in all daily activities.
