Abstract

Generally, RSBI uses English as the language of instruction for the teaching and learning process. It then can raise some problems. One of them is concerned with teachers who actually teach non-English subjects. Then anxiety comes up among them as they have to teach students using English whereas they are difficult to master English and do not have much time to prepare it. So they are in need of effective and efficient English training dealing with their lack of time and motivation. This study deals with the development of classroom pre-fabricated expressions as the material of English teacher training. This study was conducted by Research and Development method of Borg and Gall (1983: 657659). The data were taken from the teachers’ training of TK Negeri Bertaraf Internasional (TK NBI) including questionnaires, interviews and transcription of pre-fabricated expressions. There were eight teachers taking part in the training and becoming the object of this study. In order to analyze, describe, and interpret their teaching performances, the transcriptions of their talks in teaching were measured by using a rubric. The results of the study showed that (1) the problematic situations faced by the teachers of TK NBI were most of them did not speak English actively and they also did not often use English as a part of their teaching process, (2) the development of pre-fabricated expressions had undergone four stages, such as: teachers’ needs analysis and baseline level setting, development of preliminary form of products, preliminary field testing and first products revision, and main field testing, (3) classroom pre-fabricated expressions were proven to be helpful to improve non-English teachers’ talk in delivering the materials using English in class. Classroom pre-fabricated expressions are needed by nonEnglish teachers who should teach using English in RSBI schools. It makes them sure that teaching using English is not a hard thing to do and arranging English to teach in class or interact with students can be done in a relatively short time. From these findings, it is suggested that classroom pre-fabricated expressions can be used for English training for non-English teachers in RSBI schools. Pre-fabricated expression also can be used as a motivator and one of mind frames which can stimulate the teachers to be able to conduct teaching learning process in English.
