This afternoon, I was in a hurry. I had to get Lawang before East Java Bank closed. Indeed, my school is in Wagir, a place that so far from Lawang. It’s about 40 km. I was a bit worried coz it was almost 12 o’clock while East Java bank closed at 2.00 pm. It take 2 up to 2.5 hours to reach Lawang using public transportation. I was continuously grumbling why we are always late to get the information. Today we get the information and tomorrow is the due time.

Besides, Tomorrow is Saturday, and the bank is closed. Moreover, why should we legalize the bank account? I think it is impossible for a person to submit the wrong bank account because she or he will be unlucky. Uughh.. Nothing to loose to fulfill the requirements! Baca lebih lanjut

Descriptive Text Vs report Text



Banyak buku Teks dan LKS (Lembar Kerja Siswa) yang kurang tepat dalam memberikan contoh teks deskriptif. Kebanyakan mereka memberikan contoh teks report ketika membahas teks deskriptif. Bahkan, waktu saya ikut pelatihan ToT (Training of Trainer) KBK Bahasa Inggris Tingkat Nasional (2004) pun yang membuat modul tentang Teks deskriptif keliru dalam memberikan contoh. Dan alhamdulillah kekeliruan itu telah dijelaskan oleh pembuat modul report. Teks descriptive and report memang sama sama memberi gambaran tentang sesuatu (describing things) tetapi ada perbedaan yang penting diantara keduanya. Baca lebih lanjut

Contoh Recount Text: EARTHQUAKE

gempa bumiI had just got into bed about half past elevent when I felt the tremor. The bed started to tremble and I noticed the electric light hung in the ceiling was swaying.

Then, I got out of the bed quickly and went to look out of the window. As I looked, I saw the house opposite began to fall sideways. Then I realized what was happening. I put on my dressing gown hurriedly and rushed out into the garden.

I was alone in the house, my wife and children had gone to visit my mother in law.

For three or four minutes, I heard a terrible noise of walls falling down, and people screaming, and I saw clouds of dust in the air. Then the trembling stopped.

There were about fifty persons killed and more than two hundred injured. The damage to the property was considerable and about three hundred houses  would haveto be completely rebuilt. (Taken from Strategi Sukses Unas Bhs Inggris SMP/MTs)

Contoh Recount Text # 2: Dinner

Seperti dijelaskan sebelumnya bahwa Recount Teks adalah jenis teks yang menguraikan atau menceritakan kejadian atau peristiwa yang telah lewat. Berikut adalah contoh lain dari recount text.

Last night was very hungry. I wanted to eat some meal, but there was nothing left in refrigerator. So I drove my car to the nearest restaurant. It’s the famous restaurant in my town. On the way something happened to my car. I felt something bumpy. Then I decided to show what was happened. I parked the car under the big lemon three on the left side of the road. After some time looked around my car, I found that the tire was flat. It turned out that the tire punctured nails. I was a little bit confused because it was almost 9 pm. I was definitely having trouble finding the garage to be drag the car and patched the tire. Baca lebih lanjut
