Abstract


Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui apakah ada perbedaan yang signifikan dari task yang didisain berdasarkan gaya belajar siswa ditinjau dari kuantitas dan kualitas berbicara dan juga untuk mengetahui apakah ada perbedaan dari kuantitas dan kualitas berbicara siswa diantara gaya belajar yang berbeda dan task yang didisain. Penelitian ini menggunakan desain one group repeated measures. Hasil analisis menunjukkan perbedaan yang signifikan dari task yang didisain berdasarkan gaya belajar siswa ditinjau dari kuantitas berbicara, namun tidak pada kualitasnya. Meskipun tidak ada perbedaan yang signifikan pada kuantitas dan kualitas berbicara siswa dari gaya belajar yang berbeda dan task yang didisain, perbedaan tetap ada meskipun sedikit. Hal ini dilihat dari fluktuatif siswa ketika berinteraksi. Itu berarti pengelompokkan gaya belajar menurut Willing sesuai dengan konteks pembelajaran bahasa.

The purposes of this study is to find out whether there is a significant difference among task design based on students’ learning style in the quantity and quality of speaking, and to find out whether there is a difference of students’ quantity and quality in speaking among students with different learning style and the speaking task. One group repeated measures design has been carried out in this research. The result of analysis shows that there is a significant difference among tasks design based on students’ learning style in the speaking quantity, but not for the quality.Although there is no difference of students’ quantity and quality in speaking among students with different learning style and the speaking task, there is still relative different. It can be seen from the fluctuation in their interaction.  It seems that Willing’s classifications of learning style are compatible to language learning context.

Keywords: speaking task, quantity and quality of students’ speaking, learning style
