In a higher education climate that demands active learning, English teachers often find it difficult to help students whose English competency was below average to catch up with their peers who had good competence. In general, this compulsory course was only held for one semester. In fact, the target of learning English on campus was generally quite high, namely to make students had sufficient English proficiency so that they could write academic papers in English as an international language. To help overcome these obstacles, this study offers the use of the blended language learning method, which was a learning method that complements direct learning with distant learning using the internet. Blended language learning was able to complement the lack of direct time in class with distance learning using internet media. This research was the result of writer's experience in applying this method for one academic year along with the results obtained from the application of the blended language learning method in the teaching process. With the application of the blended language learning method, the writer found that language learning at the college level could be more effective, efficient, and more student-centered even though the author still faces some obstacles in its application.</p> 2021-02-25T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ummaspul.e-journal.id/majesty/article/view/1106 The Improving Speaking Skills through Active Learning Strategy 2021-03-23T01:38:00+00:00 Hasan Hasan hasansaura06@gmail.com Abd Kahar abdkahar77@gmail.com Sam Hermansyah sam.hermansyah82@gmail.com Usman Usman usmanstkip@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify; background: white; margin: 0cm 0cm 7.5pt 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt; font-family: 'Leelawadee','sans-serif'; color: #3e3f3a;">This research aimed at proving that active learning strategy can improve the speaking skill of the year eight students of SMP Negeri 1 Sidrap.

Google Classroom is a trend of blended learning in higher education that changes the strategy of delivering learning and teaching. The aim of this exploratory study is to investigate whether or not this application can be covered to develop or support learning in a Bachelor level of English Language Education program to facilitate student achievement. The test design was used to analyze student performance and the survey of perceptions of the use of Google Classroom was evaluated statistically using a questionnaire. The results revealed that students who participated in answering questions at the pretest found that there was no significant difference between the control group (45%) and also the experimental group (45.45%). In the posttest results, the two groups obtained an increase within the value of the final examination, however the contribution of 5th-semester students with the utilization of Google Classroom specifically benefited those with higher grades (81.82%) compared to third-semester students (70%). Moreover, the results of the student perceptions survey during this study indicate the use of Google Classroom is observed positively as a technology which will modernize dynamic learning and engagement, stimulate critical thinking and their participation if used suitably for learning functions.</p> 2021-02-25T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ummaspul.e-journal.id/majesty/article/view/844 Enhancement Students Pronunciation Ability through Phonetic Symbols at the Second Semester of English Department University of Muhammadiyah Sidenreng Rappang 2021-03-23T02:31:09+00:00 Hasan Hasan hasansaura06@gmail.com Salma Salma almhaputrii8@gmail.com Andi Sadapotto sadapotto.andi@yahoo.com Usman Usman usmanstkip@gmail.com <p>The objectives of the article were to find out: (1) To find out whether or not phonetic symbols increase pronunciation ability at the second semester students of University of Muhammadiyah Sidenreng Rappang.
