Author’s Preface

This book attempts to provide an enrichment of the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learning Literature, particularly the roles of grammar in the context of the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language in Indonesia. It encompasses the discussion on theories underlying the importance of grammar in language instruction and a number of empirical studies supporting the explicit grammar instruction. Following the review of theories and empirical studies, is a brief report of a study focusing on the investigation of the effectiveness of explicit grammar instruction delivered by utilizing a self – access Computer – Assisted Language Learning (CALL) program in assisting Indonesian students to improve their mastery of English grammar. The last part of this book offers some recommendations and implications. This book is intended as a reference book for those whose job is related to the teaching of English and those engaged in the research and development of EFL teaching and learning. Most parts of this book are originally derived from my Ph.D research study “EFL Self Access Computer – Assisted Language Learning for Indonesian Students: an Experimental Study”(199 8) supervised by Dr. Howard Nicholas and Dr. Lloyd Holliday, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. Some practical experience, however, is merged and integrated into some of the parts of this book to make it more comprehensive. The idea of synthesising some parts of my dissertation into this book is due to my colleagues’ urging and my intention to share with the readers my ‘contradictory’ ideas. In addition, this book intends to highlight the roles of grammar in the era of the communicative approach in language teaching that reverberates in every corner of this country. The information presented here is not intended to be a panacea for coping with the problems of the teaching of English as a Foreign Language nor is it intended to be prescriptive; this book is simply a resource from which the readers, particularly English teachers, are expected to make further and more productive efforts to improve the results of the Teaching of EFL in Indonesia.
