Secondary High School English Teachers’ Perception toward English as Medium Instruction

Santi Erliana

Abstract

The insufficient previous studies on the use of English as Medium Instruction (EMI) in EFL classrooms in Indonesia encourage the present study. Ideally, English teachers are obliged to teach English subjects using English in order to provide authentic learning. The present study aims to explore how English teachers perceive English as Medium Instruction in EFL classes at two Secondary High Schools in Palangka Raya, Indonesia. 7 teachers who teach English both partially and entirely in English from the selected schools were exposed to questionnaires, were interviewed and were observed. The result of the study showed the insignificant effect of EMI within ELT as the result of the use of English as foreign language (EFL) in Indonesia. Despite the low frequency use, the teachers have a positive response toward their own English and are aware the importance of conducting teaching and learning process using English. Finally, it is recommended for the teachers to utilize various teaching strategies and policy makers to provide trainings on effective teaching methodology.
