Bahari

TOEFL 574

I’m a muslim, Your friendly, non-toxic, non-terroristic nor judgmental muslim to be precise. I spent my entire life moving from one city to another, one island to another. I’ve lived in Indonesia’s 4 major continents, and that made me a pluralistic, go with the flow, easy-going type of person. So, what was that, easy going, a muslim and a pluralist, and yes, I am keen and willing to teach others about anything positive, and in this case, the English language.

I finished my bachelor’s degree, majoring in political science, from University of Brawijaya on 2017. I am active in external campus organization. I have a TOEFL score of 574, released by ETS. I learned the English language mostly from free media; the internet, games, music etc. I do not have a proper, institutional training, but I still manage to get myself ahead by learning alone. I spent most of my days in campus learning, and I manage to be stuck on a subject that has become (somehow) my specialty, that is designing. I am profound with photoshop, corel and after effects.

Let’s get to know each other deeper shall we? I love the pop culture, its movies, TV series, arts and of course, games. You name anything about the pop culture and I’d probably heard/play it. Breaking Bad? I’ve watched the whole series. Pulp Fiction? I’m also a big fan. Fallout, Skyrim, Bioshock, Persona series? Name any RPG game and I probably already played it! But, I also respect the classics, especially the literature, the locals (Pram, Tan, Dee) and the internationals (Ibnu Katsir, Stephen Hawking, George Orwell).

Okay now about my teaching methods. I will provide an effective yet fun way to learn English. I will use the internet and its wonders (and weirdness) to teach you! I’m sure you will found new interests in the world wide web (that will also helps you learn) by selecting me as a teacher. I am focused on helping you build your sense into English rather than piling you up with theories, concept and grammatical rules. But, I am also willing to give you a thorough explanation of theory, concept and grammatical rule if you want to. I will assure you that I will be a professional yet fun teacher that will help you learn English!

Countable and Uncountable Nouns

Dalam bahasa Inggris, terdapat kata benda yang dapat dihitung/terhitung (countable) dan kata benda tak terhitung/terhingga (uncountable).

Sementara kata benda tak terhingga tidak berdiri sendiri maupun jamak, contohnya, happiness, beauty, music, sugar dan seterusnya.

Untuk memahami the countable dan uncountable, dapat dimulai dengan mengklasifikasikan apakah noun (kata benda) yang digunakan adalah abstrak atau konkrit. Kebanyakan uncountable nouns bersifat abstrak, seperti sadness, love, hatred dan kebanyakan countable nouns bersifat konkrit, laptop(s), shoe(s), shirt(s), namun, JANGAN selalu berpegang pada prinsip ini, dikarenakan tetap ada uncountable yang konkrit (sand, sugar) dan tetap ada countable yang abstrak (idea(s), situation(s)).
