Abstract

     This study presented a research conducted on Code Switching in an English teaching. It set out to investigate a teacher’s code switching between English and Indonesian in a classroom and to observe the awareness of the actual use of code switching in the classroom. A qualitative descriptive research was applied. And the analyses of code switching were based on Poplack’s (1980) division of code switching, namely intra-sentential, inter-sentential, and tag switching. The data were taken from class observations at SMK Swasta Teladan Medan during the English teaching-learning processes. They were collected in relation to the observation of code switching during the teacher’s explanation when presenting the lessons. The types of code switching, the reasons why the teacher used code switching, the benefits of teacher’s code switching, and the code switching episodes were identified, transcribed, and analyzed. Based on the analysis, it was found that there were 47 code switching consisting of 23 intra-sentential (49%), 12 inter-sentential (25.5%), and 12 tag switching (25.5%). Inter-sentential and tag switching happened because of the teacher’s unconsciousness, while Intra-sentential switching as the dominant type of code switching happened because of the awareness of the teacher. In conclusion, a foreign language teacher has a tendency to use code switching in the teaching-learning processes because of the requirement in teaching-learning English, the teacher’s easiness of expression, repetition of main points, and socialization of the unfamiliar terms. Therefore, it is suggested that an English as Foreign Language (EFL) teacher can always apply code switching for the success of teaching learning processes in the classroom.
