EFL and Language Ideology - The Case of Indonesia

Yanty Wirza

Abstract

This study was motivated by the understanding that language teaching, learning, and use are implicitly and explicitly ideological endeavours. In the case of ELT in Indonesia, the ideological assumptions often times are not revealed and discussed enough that the stakeholders and societies at large are not aware of the ideological forces at work at multiple levels affecting and shaping their beliefs, decisions, and practices concerning English and what they do with it. Utilizing narrative inquiry, this study looked at how language ideology influenced and shaped two participants’ understanding and practices as EFL learners, users, and practitioners. During the depth interviews, the participants shared detailed regarding ELT and its implementations in their local contexts. The findings revealed that language ideology that drive ELT in Indonesia had shaped the participants experiences in profound ways. In addition, there were some generational shifts in how English was perceived and in the values of English in their own families and local communities.
