Abstract

The era of globalization has caused English to become one of the main subjects for education in Indonesia. The teaching of English in the present era has experienced changes from time to time. One of its developments takes the form of the program of bilingual instruction. Such a program is increasingly being promoted by the government in the effort to make the governmental policy concerning the bilingual program a success. Therefore, the researcher has been inspired to contribute suggestions related to the English partial immersion program actualized in the research concerned here. The development of the bilingual class for language and social science classes has been a follow-up of research conducted by Rahmi D. Andayani et al. on mathematics and physical science classes. In order that bilingual classes in social and linguistic fields could be developed and implemented at junior high schools (locally called sekolah menengah pertama or SMP, for short) in the province of Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (or DIY, for short) in particular and in Indonesia in general, research on the partial immersion program as a model of English language instruction to lead to the idea of the international-level school at SMPs running bilingual classes in DIY has been made. The objective of the research was to (a) design a form of teacher training and carry out training in accordance with field observation, (b) learn of the implementation of the English partial immersion program in the field and especially its process of instruction, (c) describe the perceptions of students, parents, teachers, and principals of the said schools of the program, and (d) design a model of instruction for the English partial immersion program. Basically, the immersion class is a class using two languages without ignoring the culture of each language (www.carla.umn.com). The method of the research on the program was qualitatively and quantitatively descriptive. The data were obtained by recording, making interviews, and distributing questionnaires. The data obtained were treated to a SWOT (short for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis, after which a model of instruction in the form of the partial immersion program was designed by means of comparisons and conclusions drawn from compiled theories. The model was then tried out and afterwards an evaluation was conducted on it. The results of the research are that (a) the reason for giving the materials from General English, Describing Language Skills, Developing Writing, Developing Reading, Developing Listening, Developing Speaking, Vocabulary, Lesson Plan, and Classroom English for Bilingual Instruction is that teachers of subjects in the fields of the social sciences and languages need training and arms to be used as stepping stones in bilingual instruction, (b) with the holding of the tutorials on making lesson plans, the teachers feel being helped in planning the execution of good instruction in the bilingual class, (c) according to the analysis of data in the tabulation of the perceptions of students, parents, teachers, and principals related to both SMPN 1 Bantul and SMPN 4 Pakem, they feel sufficiently enthusiastic about the running of the bilingual immersion program at school, and (d) the workshop is necessary to give feedback, policy reference for related institutions, and simultaneously dissemination to schools which would later be used as subjects for research on providing a model of good bilingual instruction to be applied at the schools in the effort to lead to the idea of the international-level school.
