They are language, science, mathematics, finance, digital, and citizenship literacy. These six kinds of literacy must be learned since the early childhood. Therefore, literacy learning should be taught in communicative and fun ways. As a result, appropriate teaching medias that can meet these requirements are needed. Children literature appears as one of these medias that contains literacy learning in it. One of the most crucial literacy skills that should be learned by humans is financial literacy since it relates to the knowledge and ability in applying the understanding of concepts, risks, skills, and motivations in the context of financial. Data related to financial literacy learning were found in every genre of children literature such as children proses, rhymes, or dramas.

It is a descriptive qualitative method because the data in this study are the form of words. The source of the data in this study is debate transcripts, while the data are the words, phrases, and sentences in the debate which contain the categories of interactional metadiscourse markers. The results of the study show that there are five types of interactional metadiscourse markers. Those are hedges, boosters, attitude markers, self-mentions, and engagement markers. Self-mentions are the most dominant markers used by the candidates which reach a total of 149 data. Meanwhile, the lowest marker is hedges with a total of 62 data. In addition, the writer also found that each marker has its own function. Hedges aim to show that the speaker's statements are more reasonable opinions than facts. Boosters are used to emphasize or clarify a statement. Attitude markers have a function to show the speaker's attitude towards a proposition. Then self-mentions are used to explicitly show the speaker's presence in the discourse. Meanwhile, engagement markers are used to focus the audience attention or involve them in the discourse.</p> 2024-01-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 LingPoet: Journal of Linguistics and Literary Research Using Communicative Language Teaching to instruct ESL at the university level 2024-01-11T18:47:21+07:00 Obaidul Rahman Emon <p>The study of how people learn languages has always fascinated researchers and has been a constant source of inspiration for both teachers and linguists. Within the spectrum of changing teaching methods, Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) is a prominent approach that emphasizes the development of effective communication skills in learners. The global recognition of this organization grew rapidly since its establishment in the 1970s, fueled by the necessity for language learners to develop effective communication abilities. However, the implementation of this approach faces several challenges because of the discrepancies between educators and this method.</p> <p>Chomsky (1957) emphasizes that in the field of language acquisition, important aspects include vocabulary, sentence structure, sound patterns, and word formation. This differs from Hymes' (1971) claim, which includes aspects such as grammar, meaning, social context, and practical use of language. The theoretical frameworks proposed by Hymes (1971) and other scholars lead to a significant change in thinking, driving the progress of communicative language teaching in second language education. Unlike the Grammar-Translation method, the Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) method provides learners with more opportunities to develop their ability to communicate effectively. This method greatly emphasizes the active involvement of learners in the second language classroom, which is not commonly seen in traditional teaching approaches.</p> <p>This study thoroughly examines the use of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) in the context of teaching English as a second language. This text specifically discusses the evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) compared to outdated teaching methods, the current trends observed in CLT, and the challenges faced in implementing it in a university setting. The purpose of this elucidation is to provide educators with a thorough understanding of CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) while also offering suggestions for incorporating CLT into the university setting. This includes guidance on organizing classroom activities and strategies for motivating students.</p> 2024-01-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 LingPoet: Journal of Linguistics and Literary Research Plotagon Training for English Teachers during the Covid-19 Pandemic 2024-01-05T14:11:40+07:00 <p class="abstract"><span lang="EN-GB" style="font-family: 'Times New Roman',serif;">A great majority of English teachers agree that it is crucial for them use to use digital technology to help students improve their foreign language skills. Many studies, however, show that the number of teachers who use technology in their teaching and learning practices is still limited. The lecturing method, discussion method, and follow-up study method were used to undertake the training activities. This study presents an overview of the training participants' reactions to the use of <em>Plotagon</em> in English learning, as well as the extent to which the participants understand how to create English dialogues using <em>Plotagon</em>. The use of online training turned out to have a significant impact on the characteristics of participants who interacted during the training. This technical skill weakness, however, could be compensated for by responding quickly when asked by the material provider via video conference. They believed that online tools should only be used as a supplement to the training process. Despite this, the majority of participants agreed that <em>Plotagon</em> was very useful for improving the quality of English learning, so the participants were enthusiastic about participating in the training even with all these obstacles.</span></p> <p>Keywords: <em>Community service</em>; <em>digital technology</em>; <em>English teaching</em>; <em>online</em>; <em>Plotagon</em></p> 2024-01-31T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 LingPoet: Journal of Linguistics and Literary Research Unveiling the Impact of Hallyu Phenomenon (Korean Wave) on the Adolescent Lifestyle in Indonesia 2023-12-28T23:12:28+07:00 Dafit Dahroni <p>The Korean Wave, known as Hallyu, has had a significant impact on the lifestyle of teenagers in Indonesia, reflecting the popularity of South Korean culture in Asia.
