The Using of Casual Style in ELT for Young Learners (Sociolinguistics Perspectives)
Debora, Irene
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v4 n1 p124-128 Jan 2013
Young Learners have less reinforcement to speak with others. One of the causes is the trend of formal or clumsy learning setting in emphasizing the speaking proficiency. Speaking based on the culture context also contribute them in increasing their motivation to express their ideas. "Casual style" as one of the language variations gives contribution in increasing students' motivation to be more active in the class. The simply characteristics of "Casual style" can be memorized and applied easily. "Casual style" tends to adjust the culture of speaker in communication so it will be easy to be understood. Students also can use the utterances in their daily life because most of the utterances are familiar for them. The raising of motivation from students will give positive effect for teaching and learning process, students, and also teachers.
