Main Article Content
In Indonesia, English is considered as a foreign language, the same like other countries’ languages such as Spanish, German and Japanese languages. However, English is still treated as the most widely used foreign language in this country. There are many educational administrative and academic portions which use English as one of their requirements. Some examples on the use of English as part of the compulsory process are the existence of the Schools National examination, University enrollment test, Scholarships test and job placement test. All of those tools require English as part of their materials.Speaking about English particularly, we will emerge into a classical issue about one part of English which is considered important but tricky to learn. It is the grammar.
