In the reference book on pragmatics, there are several definitions, among others, the study of how language is used to communicate; study on the ability of language users to adjust the sentence to the context so that the sentence is appropriate. Foreign language teachers will experience more difficulties in teaching pragmatics to students, compared with mother language teachers, for example, the Javanese, or national language, Indonesian, because foreign language teachers must succeed in making students understand and produce the utterances that are appropriate with the context. To be able to understand and produce the appropriate language, the student should be able to distinguish and analyze the sentence in syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. One of the topics in syntax is to analyze sentences based on the type of sentence; in semantics, the students understand the meaning of the sentence, and in the pragmatics, students are taught an intention of someone by using a certain utterance in the communication. This paper discusses how pragmatics was taught in French classroom as a foreign language in the 4th semester at the State University of Semarang. The book "Guide Pratique de la Communication" by Alan Chamberlain and Ross Steele published by Les Editions Didier Paris containing 57 dialogs and 100 speech acts which are used as a tool for students to analyze the data syntactically, semantically, and pragmatically. This book is used because the speech acts found in this book reflect the real situation. This paper describes the process of students to analyze the data syntactically, which is followed by analyzing the data semantically, and in finally, the students can analyze data pragmatically. The students worked in group so that there would be intensive discussions from different thoughts.
