Students Feedback on Using Telegram in Speaking Practice During Self Learning Time
This paper provides insights into students’ views on the use of Telegram for development of speaking skills in the context of SLT in Malaysian tertiary education. Data gathered from questionnaires was analyzed using descriptive statistics whilst data from the interviews was analyzed using a content analysis approach. The findings revealed that while the students display positive attitudes in using Telegram, the activities conducted have to be properly guided. The findings also showed that students do not only focus on the usability of the Telegram as a tool, but the language content delivered through the tool. This study suggests that instructors have to properly plan the integration of Telegram in SLT and provide clear instructions to students. Instructors also need to incorporate a variety of activities using Telegram to increase participation, and consider revising the content of the lesson to fit the affordances of Telegram to ensure the mastery of speaking.
