arranged at the beginning of the course.

reading comprehension and exercises with additional topics on grammar,
vocabulary and special terms, idioms, and translation.

classroom is translating from English into Indonesian, explaining a specific
structure or grammar found in the passage, and sometimes helping the students in
comprehending a passage by translating the important part of the passage. Class
work and group work activities are used in the teaching and learning processes.

including the mid – term test and final test. The tests are prepared by the teacher
(a teacher – made test). The teacher also evaluates students’ participation and
activeness in the classroom (ongoing activities). The focuses of the test material
are questions about a specific business matter, translation, and vocabulary. The

true – false, and answering questions related to business matter. The language

are supposed to conduct a more thorough study on the instructional materials
presented by the teacher because instructional materials give contributions to the
result of the English teaching. Besides, more investigation on the implementation
of the teaching technique is also required. It is considered that a comparison study
