Kartini Rahmatillah

Abstract


Abstrak: Penggunaan bahasa Inggris sebagai bahasa global sudah sangat meluas sehingga  memaksa pengajar bahasa Inggris memberikan pembelajaran sejak tingkat dasar.Pakar bahasa memandang penguasaan bahasa asing lebih baik bila dilakukan di usia dini. Nyatanya porsi pembelajaran bahasa Inggris di tingkat sekolah dasar sangat kurang. Bahkan beberapa sekolah dasar di Balikpapan sudah tidak lagi memasukkan bahasa Inggris sebagai muatan wajib.Terinspirasi agar para pelajar SD ini tetap bisa belajar bahasa Inggris, maka kegiatan pendampingan ini diinisiasi mulai dari lingkungan terdekat. Kegiatan pendampingan ini khusus ditujukan untuk pelajar tingkat SD berupa pembelajaran bahasa Inggris yang diharapkan dapat menjadi suatu kegiatan bagi mereka untuk dapat terus belajar bahasa Inggris walaupun bukan lagi sebagai mata pelajaran wajib di sekolah. Melalui pendekatan Communicative Language Teaching (CLT), kegiatan pembelajaran ini dirancang agar pelajar merasakan pembelajaran bahasa Inggris dengan pendekatan yang menyenangkan dengan langsung melatih kemampuan berkomunikasi. Terbukti dari keinginan peserta dan orang tua peserta agar kegiatan sejenis dapat secara berkesinambungan diadakan di lingkungan mereka.
