Writing = keriting?

23 Jul


writing has been a monster for most people in my country, including my beloved students. all they say when they hear that word is; “ooohh noooo, no writing, pls dont :))”, as if they were about to do the most unpleasant thing. IT IS an UPHILL struggle, especially for adult learners.

this should be overcome i think as writing is a part of preserving values and cultures, so if nation does not write i could not imagine what happen next.

well, i think the problems are many; grammar is just the tip of the iceberg. i myself, i dont think i am good at writing, but somehow i must write and write, just make it into da habit.

if grammar is not the only problem then i can say that probably revealing one’s self is very hard for someone. i have a student who is fluent in english, but when i offer him to write in weblog, shaking his head off he said; no thanks, i am not open person so i m too shy to write.

i wonder if someone could motivate da students to write more and more

    iya ersis, sad but true.
    at least itu yang saya hadapi di kelas. just try to be objective.
    bahwa buku menjadi booming it’s interesting fact. tapi yang ada didepan mata saya waduh, susyee banget memotivasi pupils untuk nulis, even to write as badly as i do, i dont expect the perfect wrting from my students as i am far from perfect too, any suggestion?
