Abstract

Artikel ini menyajikan suatu model dalam pembelajaran percakapan dasar bahasa Inggris bagi kaum muda.  Artikel ini didasarkan pada kegiatan pengabdian kepada masyarakat yang dilaksanakan di daerah Tambak Lorok Semarang pada bulan Oktober 2019 dengan sasaran kaum muda. Tujuan pelatihan untuk membekali para kaum muda dalam mempersiapkan Tambak Lorok sebagai destinasi wisata Kampung Bahari.  Hasil pelatihan menunjukkan bahwa peserta pelatihan menunjukkan sikap yang positif yang ditunjukkan dalam berpartisipasi dalam proses pembelajaran. Akan tetapi, motivasi kurang begitu tinggi karena adanya rasa keengganan dan keraguan mereka bisa mampu berbahasa Inggris. Materi yang disampaikan antara lain  how to approach someone, how to ask for information about prices, places of interests, how to thank or close conversations, how to greet. Materi yang diberikan dimaksudkan untuk merangsang kaum muda Tambak Lorok (Mulyo) menggunakan bahasa Inggris. Strategi pembelajaran yang dapat digunakan adalah strategi metakognitif, kognitif, dan afektif atau sosial. Strategi-strategi itu dapat dilakukan secara bertahap atau bersifat berkesinambungan tergantung pembelajar. Pembelajaran dilakukan secara informal di luar kelas dengan suasana yang cair dan fleksibel. Setiap hari direncanakan untuk praktek bicara bahasa Inggris.  Pelatihan ini sekaligus untuk memotivasi kaum muda untuk giat belajar bahasa Inggris karena kebutuhan global yang tidak mungkin dihindari.
