ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine the quality of the language input provided in the elementary school English classes. Considering the importance of the language input available in the classroom in the EFL context, this study analyzes the teacher talks and the classroom activities in three elementary school prize winner classes in the national competition for excellence in English teaching. According to the result of the analysis, the language input provided by the teacher talks and the classroom activities lacks the quality of the input found in the communicative classroom. Based on the result, the study argues that in order to develop the communicative language ability in their students, the elementary school English teachers must first improve their own English proficiency and develop the techniques necessary to make their classroom activities communicative enough.
