Diah Fakhmawati: Getting Foreign Language Classroom with Nature Research Activity

by Diah Fakhmawati Expert Educator Columnist, Indonesia Usually students’ learning language takes place at classroom or language laboratory. Have you ever imagined what they are doing when they learn language outside classroom and working with plants or tree? They are learning to write a report of some plant. The students work collaboratively with their peers and some sources (writers through books, blogs, websites, and biology teachers). They also draw their natural science or biology knowledge on language product in form of report writing. This is applicable activity for them as student. They know something and they share what they know. Reporting something is common task for scholar. When they have studied of course, they should be able to elucidate what they know. While learning writing engaging natural environment would give them opportunity to gather language aptitude and natural science into a great learning outcome.
