LEARNING ENGLISH IN LANGUAGE TRAINING CENTER

 

Entering the era of globalization, English is not considered something that is familiar to the students in Indonesia. English first considered as a subject that is difficult to understand. But along with the development of technology which requires the need to be able to master English, curriculum in education began to change.

One linguist who considers the importance of studying speaking, Scott Thornbury, expressed the importance of speaking in everyday life so he suggested to learn if you want to master a language. In this case Thornbury (2005: 1) says: speaking is one part of our daily life. Generally humans generate tens of thousands of words a day. In fact, according to him, there are some people who produce more than tens of thousands of words a day as a politician and artisan auction. Speaking so important and natural that we forget how we struggled to get the ability to "speaking" is; we have to learn how to do the 'speaking' continuously in a foreign language. Furthermore, Grauberg (1997: 201) reveals that many students who think the main purpose is to learn the language of compassion can speak the language.

English as an international language plays a crucial role untnk communicate with the outside world, especially in absorbing science and technology. One aspect that needs to be mastered by students is a good English language skills, both oral and written. Good English skills must master all four language skills (jour language skills), vocabulary and grammar.
