Faisal (2015: 103) The national Indonesian curriculum was updated in 2013  and  now  requires junior  high  school  teachers to help  their  learners  demonstrate  knowledge  and  skills relating to the generic structures, social functions, and language  features  of  a  range  functional  text  types  in English,  including  recounts,  procedures,  descriptions, and  factual  reports.
Yulia (2013: 4) English  language  instruction  is  needed  by students to maximize the language exposure. Teachers’ proficiency in spoken language as the model for students in class has become a critical  issue  in  language  learning. Learning  English  in  a well balanced  foreign  and  second  language contexts  is  through  the  four  strands  of  (1) meaning  focused  input  (listening  and reading),  (2)  meaning  focused  output speaking and writing), (3) language focused learning  (attention to  language  features) and (4)  fluency  development  (working  with known  material).
