Abstract

In recent years, there have been many papers describing the importance of translation in EFL teaching and learning. Although translation has been very controversial in EFL teaching and learning for decades, some experts advocate the inclusion of translation in EFL teaching and learning, but some others do not. Thus, this study was aimed at investigating the use of translation and in what EFL aspects and skills translation is used as a learning strategy by EFL learners in a public university in Indonesia. The data in this study were collected through a survey questionnaire, the Inventory for Translation as a Learning Strategy (ITLS). A total of 68 first year university students majoring in English Education were selected to take part in this study. They were considered as intermediate EFL learners since they have been studying English since they were in elementary school. The results show that the first-year university students majoring in English Education still make frequent use of translation in their EFL learning. They use translation to improve their English skills in terms of reading, writing, listening and speaking, English vocabulary, phrases, grammar, to clarify the similarities and differences between Indonesian and English, to interact with other, and as their learning aids which include the use of English – Indonesian dictionary, Indonesian – English dictionary, and electronic translation machine. Keywords: translation, learning strategy, English, EFL
