THE ROLE OF SONG TO TEACH ENGLISH VOCABULARY THROUGH LISTENING AT THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL


CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION

1.Background of the Study
Life and language are related to  each other. This phenomenon started from human’s need in communicating. Basically, human as a social creature always depends on social relation. When language as a tool for communicating is used, the language can affect human development. From the relationship between human beings in  a society it shows that human has a quality of communication. Fiumara (1995:126) claims that the life and language synergies may then begin to appear in the full diachronic dimension affecting human development. From the statement above, it is clear that language acquisition of human being  is mostly influenced by their surrounding.
Nowadays, language is changing with the changing of the world in science and technology. We should become  people who will be able to face modern life in globalization area.  When we struggle to live in the globalization area, we should have many skills including mastering languages. One of them is English, the international language. By mastering English we already have a key in reaching our goals. People who master English usually have bigger chance to develop their business. They are more appreciated than other businessmen who are not able to do so.
The Indonesian government realizes that English is an important subject for students nowadays. As a proof, English is taught at school from the first grade of Junior High School through the third grade of  Senior High School, and at some departments at the universities in Indonesia as well. Even now, in certain regions English is taught at Elementary Schools as a local content subject. Moreover, many English courses are also appearing in Indonesia. This tendency also supports that English language is needed nowadays. As teachers, we should cover all of the English skills such as listening, speaking, reading, writing and also  the language components: phonology, vocabulary, and structure. As stated in the Curriculum Design, one of a framework of components is a common  professional vocabulary (Richards, 1996:12)
In order to write and to speak English well, the students have to master the components mentioned above, especially the structure and the vocabulary. To learn English is not easy, the students will find many problems. The learners who are from countries with English as the first language, the mastery of vocabulary and structure will be different from the learners coming from a country with English as second language or as a foreign language, such as Indonesia.
Learners from countries with English as the first language will not have difficulties in acquiring the two language components. The mastery of vocabulary and structure has been acquired early as subconscious habits; which will become automatic habits of the adult learners of a new language. The learners listen to the language and use it directly in their daily life. In ????????????????????????????????
