The goal of learning English as a foreign language have to be mastered by every students especially of speaking skill. The speaking skill can improve students’ communicative skill. Thus, students can express themselves and learn how to follow the social and cultural rules appropriate in each communicative circumstance. Speaking is the ability to express the ideas using the meaningful words or sentence for communication orally. The reality in learning English in EnglishEducationDepartment of MuriaKudusUniversity shows that the students are ashamed to speak in front of class because lack of vocabulary, feel unconfidence to speak English and express their ideas. They mostly feel frightened to talk about everything in English. It is becomes the responsibility of EnglishEducationDepartment to solve the problem. One of the program to solve that problem is by conduct the EnglishDayprogram. In carrying out this research I describe the implementation of EnglishDayprogram In EnglishEducationDepartment.

Saxon England has political significance as well. Henry VIII hearkened back to Anglo-Saxon letters to prove that the Church of England had always been independent of the Church of Rome. Thomas Jefferson was an avid Anglo-Saxonist who found early English forms of governance to be exemplary and even proposed as a design for the national seal the first Anglo-Saxon (military) leaders, Hengist and Horsa. In our own cultural moment, Anglo-Saxonism is being (mis)appropriated in troubling ways to support white supremacist fantasies. One could say that some knowledge of early English language and culture is crucial in our day if only to disarm such causes. Indeed, exposure to the vestiges of early English culture left to us paint a very different picture. One could say it is
The result of this research shows from the students’ answer from the questionnaire.

Indonesian is our national language. It is used in our daily communication. Unfortunately, not all information has been covered in Indonesian yet. We need to get more information from books written in English. College students will get in touch with English sentences more frequently than they did in the senior high school. That is why translation is needed. Translation is very crucial in the process of exchanging information. Without translation, prospective scientists will be left behind in following the development of science, moreover if they lack the ability to read the foreign language text (Widyamartaya, 1989: 9).
In the name of Allah, the most gracious and the most merciful.

The study examined language features on discussion texts written by university students. The aim of this study is to explain what students language features used on discussion text are. The subject of this study is 28 students from third semester of EnglishEducationDepartment. This study is qualitative research. The procedure of data collections are from documentation of discussion texts written by 28 students who registered in Genre Based Writing course at UIN Walisongo. The researcher got the data from the lecturer. The advantages and disadvantages of this study was analyzed using Feez’s (1998) framework for discussion texts. The results showed that two students were unable to write discussion text correctly. Analysis of the language features in the student discussion texts revealed that students have variation in writing conditional clauses although they were seldom used to present hypothetical situations to move the arguments forward. On the other hand, connectors were frequently used, particularly “because”. More causal connectors were used than sequential connectors because of the need for reasoning in discussion texts. Shifts in arguments were signaled using adversative connectors but these were used less frequently than additive connectors for connecting similar ideas. The discussion texts were also characterized by the frequent use of modal verbs for hedging and boosting, mainly “can” and “will”. The study showed, while the students’ texts had the relevant language features of discussions, they sometimes lacked of comprehending the characteristic of word that they use to connect their sentence or arrange sentence particularly in writing conditional clause.

important _______ (significant)” (Berka, Váňová 46). And the last, Hatim and Mason (1997) point to the potential shortcoming of these tests and state that in such exams:
[…] all the skills involved in translating are tested at once and errors do not necessarily show which skill is deficient. Moreover, test-takers are often prevented from demonstrating one of their skills—their ‘transfer competence’—simply because the source text is too difficult for them to analyse and understand properly” (p. 198). The teacher creates some sentences with gaps and the testee has to complete them but we have to avoid more that one possible answers. All of test will put into pre and post test. The pre-test was meant to know the student prior knowledge in academicEnglish Vocabulary while the post-test was purposed to know the students’ ability to improve their academicEnglish Vocabulary by using Jakarta post.

1. The Relationship between Extraversion/Introversion and the Use of Strategic Competence in Oral Referential Communication which conducted by Musa Ahmadian, an assistant professor of Arak University and Hamid Reza Yadgari, M.A, holder of Arak University.

Across Japan demographically the student population is decreasing. This means that nationally universities are vying for students and competition between universities is rising. To survive institutions must take a critical look at the quality of education offered and if required make necessary changes to insure the increasing expectations of new and existing students are met. If changes are not made, then the current status quo will prevail and complacency may take hold. One method of insuring a continued and improving quality of education is through teacher collaboration. This is applicable both on a small scale as in specific lesson or class planning through to larger scale collaboration within departments, faculties and the institution itself.
Another research proved that writing is considerably challenging was done by Hind Al Fadda about the difficulties that encountered by King Saud University students when learning to write Englishacademic papers and also to differentiate between students’
learning needs and objectives. This study used questionnaire as the main instrument for obtaining required quantitative data by collecting 50 postgraduate students during the 2009- 2010 academicyear. The study showed that the difficulties faced by ESL students in writing academic papers are such as they find it difficult in differentiating between spoken and written English words, drafting before writing the whole paper, determining the skills needed to make a good writing and avoiding plagiarism. The findings also showed that Saudi students who speak English fluently still have a bad writing skill. One of the reasons is because Arabic Language tends to use metaphoric, lengthy sentences, while it is opposite with the academic writing in English. 40

E. CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTION
This research reveals that anxiety has a significantly negative correlation ZLWK VWXGHQWV¶ (QJOLVK DFKLHYHPHQW (r = -258, p < .01). The result indicates that low anxious students are more likely to achieve higher English scores, otherwise, high anxious students tend to obtain lower English scores. Therefore, it is recommended to do further investigation on the factors contributing anxiety in learning English as well as the strategies to cope with those factors.
