Abstract

The study is aimed at investigating the forms of language of instructions in Intensive Course (IC) classes and the effectiveness of language of instructions used by the IC lecturers. It is essential for lecturers to develop an awareness of the importance of clear language of instructions for good class management. Moreover, observation, interview, recording and note-taking were used to collect the data. Six IC lecturers participated in the study. A total of 516 language of instruction were identified by analyzing the transcript of videotaped lesson. The findings indicated that Imperatives (54%) were used more frequently by the lecturers than Declaratives (30%) or Interrogatives (16 %) in IC classes. The study revealed that effective language of instructions should be simple, clear, and systematic rather than complicated or too formal, particularly for beginners or pre intermediate students. The factor that the most commonly linked to effective instructions was student response and participation. Recommendations were made to improve on the effectiveness of university lecturers in giving instructions.
