Tsunami

The term of “tsunami” comes from the Japanese which means harbour (“tsu”) and wave (“nami”). A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or a sea is rapidly displaced on a massive scale.

A tsunami can be generated when the sea floor abruptly deforms and vertically displaces the overlying water. Such large vertical movements of the earth’s crust can occur at plate boundaries.

Subduction of earthquakes are particularly effective in generating tsunami, and occur where denser oceanic plates slip under continental plates.

As the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium, it radiates across the ocean like ripples on a pond.

Tsunami always bring great damage. Most of the damage is caused by the huge mass of water behind the initial wave front, as the height of the sea keeps rising fast and floods powerfully into the coastal area.

Love money too much

There was a man who liked money very much. He worked all of his life and wanted to save all of his money for his own future. He was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything.
Even, just before he died, he said to his wife; “Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. I wanna take my money to the afterlife.” So he asked his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him.
Well, one day, he really died. Then he was stretched out in the casket. The wife was sitting there in black clothes next to her closest friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said “Wait just a minute!”
She had a box in her hands. She came over with the box and placed it in the casket. After that the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away. Not long after that, her friend said, “I hope you were not crazy enough to put all that money in the casket.”
The wife turned to her friend and replied; “Yes, because I have promised.” Then she continued; “I can’t lie. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him.” Feeling shocked, her friend said; “You mean that you have put every cent of his money in the casket with him?” Then the wife answered; “Surely I did. I got it all together, put all the money into my account and I just wrote him a check.”

Growing Number of High School Student Smoking

A survey has found about 13 percent of first-time smokers in the country are junior high school students. It also revealed 89 percent of young female employees were smokers.

The survey was conducted in five major cities across the country, including Surakarta in Central Java.

Muhammad Syahril Mansyur, the Surakarta Health Agency’s respiratory illness division, said that the finding of the survey showed an alarming growth rate of Indonesian smokers. “This situation is a cause for concern,” he said. “It appears the country’s younger generation is uneducated about the health risks of smoking.”

The Indonesian anti-tobacco campaign has reportedly been deemed as ineffective as the government refuses to sign the international convention on tobacco control. It said that cigarette producers contributed to a large amount to state revenue and gave jobs to thousands of workers.

RA Kartini

Every April 21, people in Indonesia commemorate the Kartini day. It is

a beautiful day for the woman because we celebrate the birth of great

lady, RA. Kartini. Everyone knows who kartini is. She is our national

heroine and a great lady with the bright idea.

Kartini was born in 1879, April 21 in Mayong Jepara. Her father was

RMAA. Sosroningrat, Wedana (assistant of head of regency) in Mayong.

Her mother, MA Ngasirah was a girl from Teluk Awur village in Jepara.

As the daughter of a noble family, she felt luck because she got more

than the ordinary people got. She got better education than other

children. She did anything she wants although it was forbidden. She

passed her childhood with her brother and sister. Because she was very

energetic, her father called her “trinil”

Then her father was chosen as Bupati (the head of regency) in Jepara.

She and her family then moved from Mayong to Jepara. In the same year,

Kartini’s second sister RA Kardinah was born. The environment in Jepara

gave her big chance to develop her idea. She could study at the Dutch

owned school where only children from noble family could study here.

Few years after finishing her study, RA. Kartini was willing to

continue her study in higher level. But the custom of that day forbid a

woman to go to school. A tradition of that time, a teenage girl should

be secluded and limited her activity. So was Kartini. She was secluded

inside the house and forbidden to go out until a man propose her. The

rule could restrict her body but not her mind. During her “pingitan”

time, she spent her time by reading book which she got from her

relatives.

Although she was not able to continue her study to higher level, she

was smart had a bright idea. She got the knowledge from the books she

read. To express her idea, she established a school for local people on

the backyard of Jepara city hall.

In November 12,1903, she married Adipati Djoyodiningrat, the head of

Rembang regency. According to Javanese tradition Kartini had to follow

her husband. Then she moved to Rembang.
In September 13, 1904 she gave a birth to her son. His name was

Singgih. But after giving birth to a son, her condition was getting

worse and she finally passed away on September 17, 1904 on her 25 years

old.

Now Kartini has gone. But her spirit and dream will always be in our

heart. Nowadays Indonesian women progress is influenced by Kartini’s

spirit stated on collection of letter “Habis gelap terbitlah terang”

from the dusk to the dawn.

4 Penyebab Kemampuan Bahasa Inggris Sulit Meningkat:

Penyebab pertama adalah Kebiasaan berbahasa Indonesia yang (maaf) jelek. Kalau kita ngomong atau nulis, pada umumnya kita suka berputar-putar (not to the point), plus tidak terstruktur, sehingga sering kita tidak tahu mana main subject, main verb, dan seterusnya. Lho, apa hubungannya dengan bahasa Inggris? Silakan baca poin berikut!

Penyebab kedua adalah Ketika menggunakan bahasa Inggris, baik via speaking maupun writing, kita umumnya mempartisi otak kita menjadi 2, yaitu partisi A untuk bahasa Indonesia dan partisi B untuk bahasa Inggris. Pertama-tama kalimat dibuat dulu di partisi A, baru kemudian diekspor ke partisi B untuk ditranslate sebelum akhirnya diekspresikan lewat speaking or writing. Efeknya adalah pola atau grammar yang sudah payah-payah dipelajari sejak SMP menjadi terlupakan karena partisi B terlalu sibuk mentraslate kata demi kata yang dibuat di partisi A. Dan, karena kalimat bahasa Indonesianya muter-muter dan tidak terstruktur, partisi B menjadi tambah pusing dalam melakukan translasi. Akibatnya, partisi B sering hang (macet), dan no output yang dihasilkan. Kalau pun partisi B berhasil mengeluarkan output, output tersebut umumnya jauh di bawah standar, alias bahasa Inggris yang jelek. Selain itu, lawan bicara biasanya sudah tertidur dimakan nyamuk karena kelamaan nunggu.

Penyebab ketiga adalah Motivasi yang tidak konsisten. Bagi pelajar, motivasi untuk belajar bahasa Inggris pada umumnya karena ingin mendapat nilai bagus. Artinya, bahasa Inggris hanya dipelajari waktu mau ujian, dan setelah ujian selesai bukunya sudah mengendap entah dimana.

Penyebb keempat adaah Metode belajar bahasa Inggris yang kurang tepat. Jika hanya mengandalkan daya hafal, your English will not get better.

Lantas apa solusinya?

Gunakan partisi B saja (dan lupakan partisi A).

Dengan menggunakan satu partisi, grammar anda tidak akan terkontaminasi oleh struktur bahasa Indonesia anda yang jelek (jika misalnya memang jelek) dan komunikasi akan menjadi lebih lancar karena berkurangnya birokrasi di dalam otak anda. Dengan bermodalkan struktur bahasa dan vocabs yang telah dipelajari sejak SMP sebenarnya kita sudah dapat berkomunikasi dengan santai. Believe or not? Kalau tidak percaya, silakan buat list dulu! Kelompokkan words yang sudah anda tahu ke dalam nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, dan articles, kemudian total. Saya yakin vocabs anda sudah jauh di atas 1000. You know what? Dengan menguasai 1000 words saja, kita sebenarnya sudah dapat komunikasi dengan lancar, baik di sekolah, di rumah, di mall, di bar, atau bahkan di dalam mimpi. Dengan catatan, jika anda merasa menemui jalan buntu, revisi saja kalimatnya dengan menggunakan words yang lain. Ingat, ketika komunikasi dalam bahasa inggris, just use what you’ve got dan lupakan bahasa Indonesia. Anda akan rasakan bedanya.

Keep your motivation steadily high.

Dengan motivasi yang tinggi, anda akan merasa enjoy (tidak merasa terpaksa) untuk menghabiskan waktu berjam-jam membaca atau menghafal grammar, membuka dictionary, dan praktek bahasa inggris. Jika anda cepat merasa bosan, itu berarti motivasi anda belum cukup tinggi. Kalau saya dulu, sekedar contoh, motivasi itu tinggi karena saya sangat ingin sekolah gratis di luar negeri. Lalu, apa motivasi anda belajar bahasa Inggris?

Karena bahasa Inggris sangat kompleks, tentu saja butuh waktu untuk mempelajarinya. Banyak teman kita menyerah di tengah jalan karena kurang sabaran, terlalu ingin tiba di garis finish dalam waktu yang singkat. Saran saya, don’t be too ambisious to touch the finish line in a very short time. Hal ini selain akan membuat fondasi grammar anda tidak kokoh, juga dapat mematahkan motivasi anda. Rileks saja, sooner or later you will arrive there.

Use good learning media that fit you.

Media belajar yang tepat tergantung pada karakter dan lifestyle seseorang. Media yang tepat untuk orang lain belum tentu tepat untuk anda, begitu juga sebaliknya. Berikut adalah media yang dapat anda coba:

1. Jangan gunakan kamus yang hanya berisikan arti kata saja (i.e. can = dapat, month = bulan, plough = membajak, ect). Why? Karena kalimat-kalimat yang anda buat menjadi salah. Coba perhatikan 3 contoh kalimat berikut, yang kemungkinan besar akibat dari penggunaan kamus seperti itu:

  • You must can (kamu harus bisa)
  • The month goes round the earth (bulan mengitari bumi)
  • Three people ploughed the airplane (tiga orang membajak pesawat itu).

2. Jika anda suka dengarkan lagu-lagu barat then keep doing so, dan jika anda tidak dapat nangkap lirycs-nya, cari di internet. Berikut adalah manfaat dari mendengarkan lagu berbahasa Inggris:

  • Dapat meningkatkan listening skill anda.
  • Dapat mengetahui how a certain word is pronounced.
  • Dapat membantu membangun vocabs anda, karena kata-kata di dalam lagu lebih lama melengket di dalam memori anda (apalagi lagu-lagu bertemakan love).
  • Dapat membantu mengingat pola-pola kalimat tertetu. Misalnya, dari lagunya the Corrs berjudul “What can I do” anda dapat jadikan acuan tentang penggunaan modal can dalam kalimat tanya; Pola apa yang anda dapatkan dari “It must’ve been love” oleh Rossette ini?
  • Ketika anda bersedandung kecil di kamar mandi, anda sudah practice speaking, membentuk pola, etc.

3. Jika anda suka nonton DVD, then watch DVD movies. Sub-title dari DVD movies tersebut akan membantu anda bagaimana kata-kata tertentu dilafalkan. Pilih movies yang paling bagus menurut anda sehingga anda tidak merasa bosan untuk mutarnya lagi.

4. Gunakan fasilitas chatting, email, or whatever that uses English.

5. Visit http://swarabhaskara.byethost11.com. Blog tersebut berisikan grammar yang ditulis secara bilangual.

Practice makes perfect.

Bisa karena biasa, jurus rajin dalam arti luas, biasa melakukannya tentunya, bukan hanya memimpikan untuk melakukannya (dreaming). Ini solusi yang luas dan jitu.  Stop Dreaming Start Action Dalam Bahasa Inggris is a must.

That’s all and good luck.
