The research used E-Learning theory adapted from Akaslan and Law (2010) and employed qualitative methods to explore diverse user experiences. To find out the perceptions of informants (10 students and 1 lecturer), the researchers interviewed them to investigate more about the usefulness of this application. The findings revealed that students found TFlat to be a valuable application for improving their English pronunciation in E-learning. They appreciated the user-friendly features and accessibility of TFlat, which enhanced their overall E-learning experience. The lecturer also acknowledged the benefits of TFlat in improving students' pronunciation skills and promoting accessibility. However, they suggested addressing compatibility issues with iPhones and expanding the app's features for more extensive practice in future utilization. Overall, the study highlighted the importance of practical technological tools like TFlat in modern education and emphasized the need for exercise diversification and broader accessibility across devices.</em></p> Abd Halim Masriadi Dahniar Dahnair Muhammad Taufik Nur Mutmainna Halim Copyright (c) 2024 Abd Halim, Masriadi, Dahniar Dahnair, Muhammad Taufik, Nur Mutmainna Halim https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-06-20 2024-06-20 11 1 1 16 10.24252/elite.v11i1.44520 PERSPECTIVE ATTITUDES IN CASES OF BULLYING ON SOCIAL MEDIA X: AN APPRAISAL ANALYSIS https://journal.uin-alauddin.ac.id/index.php/elite/article/view/46123 <p>This research aims to examine how Indonesian netizens of X consider physical bullying in wider scope, which is social media (cyber-world) through X. Researchers analyze traditional bullying that occurs in Indonesia but is used as discourse on social media (cyber). Therefore a netizen attitude assessment system appears in comments and posts, especially those related to affect, assessment, and appreciation. The method used in this research is Qualitative research under Discourse Analysis methods, with the social media data source "X" with the keywords #bullying and #bullyingcilacap, while the data analyzed is in the form of words or lexis related to the appraisal system. The findings of this research are in the form of a negative judgment attitude followed by an attitude of affect and appreciation in posts about bullying cases that occurred in Indonesia. This shows that the writer or netizen is very angry and worried about the immoral act of bullying. However, a form of positive judgment attitude was also found where netizens sympathized and cared about justice for victims of bullying.</p> Dewi Nur Auliya Habiba Al Umami Copyright (c) 2024 Dewi Nur Auliya, Habiba Al Umami https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-06-21 2024-06-21 11 1 17 32 10.24252/elite.v11i1.46123 EXPLORING EFL STUDENTS’ PERSPECTIVE IN IMPROVING THEIR ENGLISH PRODUCTIVE SKILLS: EXISTING COMPETENCIES AND ENCOUNTERED CHALLENGES https://journal.uin-alauddin.ac.id/index.php/elite/article/view/47166 <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p><em>This research is focused on the fundamental competencies of students majoring in English and Literature, with the objective of identifying and evaluating their productive language skills and addressing the challenges they encounter in </em><em>enhancing speaking and writing skills.Quantitative analysis serves as the methodology for this study. The analysis of the data reveals two key findings. Firstly, there exists a diversity of proficiency levels among students, predominantly at the intermediate level. Notably, writing proficiency remains a challenge, with only 53% of students averaging between 1-4 on the scale, indicating a lack of mastery. Similarly, when it comes to writing skills, 60% of students fall within the range of 1 to 4 on the scale. Secondly, challenges stem from various factors, including limited exposure to English outside the classroom, difficulties in grasping cultural context, and a lack of confidence in public speaking. Proposed solutions include the incorporation of interactive learning methodologies, provision of supplementary speaking sessions, and the promotion of cultural sensitivity through diverse activities.</em></p> Aisyah Aisyah Muhammad Nur Akbar Rasyid Nasrum Jumharia Djamereng Sardian Maharani Asnur Copyright (c) 2024 Aisyah Aisyah, Muhammad Nur Akbar Rasyid, Nasrum, Jumharia Djamereng, Sardian Maharani Asnur https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-06-21 2024-06-21 11 1 33 51 10.24252/elite.v11i1.47166 FLOUTING MAXIM PRODUCED BY LAY ZHANG IN I HEART RADIO INTERVIEW : A PRAGMATICS ANALYSIS https://journal.uin-alauddin.ac.id/index.php/elite/article/view/47761 <p><em>This research aims to find out what types of flouting maxims were dominantly committed by Ellie and Lay Zhang in the Interview also provided another insight about flouting maxims.

The descriptive qualitative method was used in this research. The populations were the ninth-grade students of SMP Negeri 1 Ambarawa in the academic year 2022/2023. Specifically, 10 students from the IX A class were randomly chosen as the subject. The instrument used was a translation task entitled Kancil dan Buaya.
