PENINGKATAN KEMAMPUAN BERBICARA SISWA KELAS XII SMA N 1 TANJUNGSARI MELALUI METODE PRESENTASI DENGAN MEDIA POWER POINT
Each Indonesian language teacher expects his students to have skills in using Indonesian language either spoken or written. Otherwise, the observation in class XII students at SMAN 1 Tanjungsari showed that the students are not able to communicate in well and correctly Indonesian language. The students’ ability in spoken communication is still low. The use of presentation method with power point is expected to be able to increase students’ participation in learning process and improve their speaking ability.
