The participants of this research were English teachers from several Islamic elementary schools in Palembang. They were selected through the implementation of a purposeful sampling technique. The research data were obtained through one-on-one interviews with open-ended questions. This research utilized thematic analysis procedures to analyze the interview data and member checking to validate the accuracy of the findings. The results indicated that the teachers had a positive perception toward the use of authentic materials in their English classroom activities and tasks. Using authentic materials helped improve the students’ language ability and their enthusiasm for learning English. However, the teachers still faced several difficulties in selecting the appropriate existing authentic materials for their students. It implied that teachers need to make some adaptations to using existing authentic materials to attain greater appropriateness from the materials to suit their students’ specific needs and characteristics to facilitate effective English learning.</p> Dian Erlina Winda Retno Muhamad Holandyah Lenny Marzulina Herizal Herizal ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 10 1 51 61 10.19109/ejpp.v10i1.16665 The EFL Students’ Anxiety in an Online Public Speaking Class at an Indonesian University <p>One of the main challenges for English as Foreign Language (EFL) students in the public speaking class was Foreign Language Anxiety (FLA). Due to COVID-19, the public speaking class must be conducted online. This study aimed to examine the level of FLA in online public speaking classes and discovered the impacts on students' feelings upon joining the online public speaking class. This research used a quantitative research approach. The research was conducted in the online public speaking classes for fifth-semester students at Sanata Dharma University. The researchers took 50 students from the total population of 159 students in batch 2019. The level of FLA was investigated through the Modified Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (MFLCAS), and the impacts of FLA were explored using Modified Foreign Language Virtual Classroom Anxiety Scale (MFLVCAS). The results showed that students experienced a moderate level of FLA with a mean of 3,00 by three dimensions; Communication Apprehension (CA), Fear of Negative Evaluation (FNE), and Test Anxiety (TA). There were no adverse impacts from online public speaking classes related to FLVCAS. The online classroom setting did not bring another source of anxiety to the students.</p> Annisa Indira Sulistyowati Thomas Wahyu Prabowo Mukti ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 10 1 62 77 10.19109/ejpp.v10i1.13505 The Cohesion Analysis of Students’ Multimodal Text Creations <p>Examining cohesion of students’ compositions (e.g., students’ thesis writing, narratives) has been conducted by many researchers, yet cohesion of students’ multimodal text creations (a picture with captions) is still paucity. Therefore, this study aims to fill the research gap by examining the cohesion of students’ multimodal text creations using grammatical cohesive devices proposed by Halliday and Hasan (2014a) and inter-semiotic cohesive devices proposed by Liu and O’Halloran (2009). The students’ caption text analysis showed that students use three cohesive grammatical devices: references at 49%, conjunctions at 46%, and substitution at 5%. The most frequent types of them used by the students are personal references at 76%, additive conjunction at 63%, and clausal substitution at 67%. In addition, the analysis of inter-semiotic cohesive devices shows that parallel structure is hardly found in multimodal texts. Still, surprisingly, inter-semiotic polysemy is utilized by students to create co-contextualize relationships between language and images and experiential convergence. The study concluded that students in the twelfth grade of Nurul Huda Vocational High School lack using various cohesive devices. Nonetheless, they complement their caption with inter-semiotic cohesive devices embedded in the images. This study implies that the students still need more time allocation to study the subject at hand and go through the writing process as professionals do to create a better text for more elaboration and characteristics of written language with accuracy and consistency.</p> Ika Anggraeni Didin Nuruddin Hidayat Nida Husna Alek Alek Abdul Halim ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-07-02 2023-07-02 10 1 89 102 10.19109/ejpp.v10i1.11498 The Effectiveness of Pictionary Games as a Tool to Teach Vocabulary for Senior High School Students <p>This study investigates the effectiveness of Pictionary games as a tool to teach senior high school students vocabulary.

Concerning this issue, this study aimed to investigate the positive effects of mind mapping strategy integration in elevating EFL learners’ writing skills. Thus, the researcher reviewed the research results taken from 25 mind mapping strategy studies with the help of a thematic analysis to generate more robust and reliable research results. After analyzing the prior research results forming in 25 previous mind mapping strategy studies, the researcher subsumed them into some main specific themes to ascertain the comprehensibility of the targeted data. Two major specific themes were stipulated namely: (1) Mind mapping strategy enables EFL learners to become more organized L2 writers and (2) Mind mapping strategy transforms EFL learners into more avid L2 writers. It was revealed that mind mapping strategy can potentially elevate EFL learners’ writing motivation, confidence, autonomy, and skills.</p> Kristian Florensio Wijaya ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 10 1 78 88 10.19109/ejpp.v10i1.16204
