English teaching learning process, PTMT


The increasingly controlled pandemic situation and the increasing number of people who have been vaccinated foster optimism to jointly restore the world of education. There is a change of teaching learning process from distance learning to limited face-to-face learning (PTMT). This study aims to analyze the English teaching- learning process during the PTMT period. The subjects of this study are English teachers and students of three Junior High Schools in Gunungkidul. This study is a descriptive qualitative research and applied observation and interview as the data collection method. The result of this study is described in two points of view, from the teachers’ and the students’ point of view. Both teachers and students feel happier because they can meet each other directly. Students can ask for teachers’ guidance in learning. Teachers can directly control the students’ progress. Compared with distance learning, students are more aware that learning needs effort and they have to undergo the process of learning during the PTMT period. On the other hand, teachers spend much more energy in the teaching process because they have to prepare a synchronous and asynchronous teaching learning process at the same time, and are also responsible for teaching 2 shifts of the same level class daily. Some students have difficulties in adapting the school schedule. In brief, PTMT can boost or motivate students to learn and develop their 21st century skills, in particular, collaboration and communication skills.
