Abstract

This present study was aimed at discovering students’ attitudes towards the use of authentic materials in EFL classroom, students’ difficulties in dealing with authentic materials, and students’ favorable authentic materials. There were 34 eighth grade students participated in this research. The data were attained through students’ questionnaires, students’ interviews, and classroom observation. Based on the result of students’ questionnaires, students’ attitudes towards the use of authentic materials were relatively positive. The students agreed that the use of authentic materials helped them to understand the materials, made the learning enjoyable, and encouraged them to actively participate in the learning. It was also supported by the result of classroom observation which depicted that the use of authentic materials could give positive impacts on all elements of attitudes; they are cognitive, affective, and behavioral elements. Then, according to the result of students’ interview, there were five difficulties that students encountered when dealing with authentic materials: unfamiliar vocabularies appeared in authentic materials, advanced speaking fluency and intonation, low-quality of authentic materials, students’ low self-confidences, and unfamiliar authentic materials. The last, from twenty kinds of authentic materials listed in the questionnaire, songs and movies were considered as the most favorable authentic materials for EFL students. ----------- Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk menggambarkan sikap siswa terhadap penggunaan materi otentik, kesulitan yang siswa alami dalam penggunaan materi otentik, dan jenis materi otentik yag disukai oleh siswa. Terdapat 34 siswa yang berpartisipasi dalam penelitian ini. Data penelitian diambil melalui kuisioner siswa, interviu siswa, dan observasi kelas. Berdasarkan hasil kuisioner siswa, sikap siswa terhadap penggunaan materi otentik yaitu relative positif. Siswa setuju bahwa penggunaan materi otentik membantu mereka memahami pembelajaran, membuat pembelajaranj menjadi menyenangkan, dan memotivasi mereka untuk berpartidipasi aktif dalam pembelajaran. Hal ini didukung juga oleh hasil observasi kelas yang membuktikan bahwa penggunaan materi otentik dalam pembelajaran mampu membawa efek yang positif terhadap semua elemen sikap; yaitu elemen koginitf, afektif, dan behavioral. Kemudian, menurut hasil interviu siswa, ada lima kesulitan yang dialami siswa selama mengikuti pembelajaran menggunakan materi otentik: kosakata asing yang muncul dalam materi otentik, intonasi dan kecakapan berbicakara yang mahir, buruknya kualitas materi otentik yang dihadirkan dalam kelas, rendahnya tingkat percaya diri siswa, dan jenis materi otentik yang asing bagi siswa. Pada akhirnya, dari 20 jenis materi otentik yang tercantum dalam kuisioner siswa, lagu dan video dianggap menjadi jenis materi otentik yang paling disukai siswa.
