Abstract

The research aims at investigating the functional features of teacher talk in EFL classroom and the students’ preferences toward those features. It is a case study at MTs N 3 Mataram and uses descriptive method to analyze the data. Three English teachers and 103 students of MTs N 3 Mataram are involved in this study. The result of the research reveals that there are three functional features of teacher talk analyzed (amount of teacher talk time, teachers’ question, and teachers’ feedback). It is discovered that teacher talk time has greater amount than student talk time, in which 43.79% (58.2 minutes) of the total class time are allocated for teacher talk time, while only 14.94% (19.86 minutes) are allocated for student talk time. It is correlated with the students’ preferences, in which 81.55% (84 students) think that their teacher talk time is sufficient since 62.14% (64 students) prefer the teachers to explain everything related to the materials. 72.22% (169 questions) of the total questions being asked are display questions, while 5.56% questions (13 questions) are referential. It is appropriate with the preferences of the students, in which 61.17% (63 students) like display questions, while only 38.83% (40 students) prefer referential questions. Feedback is divided into two main sections (assessment and correction). 64.86% of assessments are ‘Repetition of responses followed by praises’ and 50% of corrections are explicit. It is correlated with the students’ preferences, in which 46.60% (48 students) agree to be encouraged by teacher’s instant verbal feedback and 43.69% (45 students) agree to be pointed out all their errors by the teacher. However, Students (50.49% (52 students)) prefer to correct their own error rather than immediately pointed out when making errors (29.13% (30 students))
