My name is Amadea. You can just call me Dea. I am 22 years old. I am a graduate of Universitas Sanata Dharma Yogyakarta, majoring English Letters. Currently I am working in one of big publishing as a product development. I like reading books, especially novel. I also love travelling and doing some photos hunting with friends. I am a friendly, easy-going, and confident person. I like humor and making friends. For me, meeting new friends is something good and beneficial for me. In my spare time, I also like writing a story on Wattpad.
I have been teaching English since 2015. I like teaching English because I can share my knowledge to others and by doing that, I hope others can learn English well and know that English is not difficult or scary. As part of my achievements, I was voted as the Top 20 Transmania Campus Ambassador 2015 for Yogyakarta, chosen as the 16 Indonesian Delegates of Service Learning Program 2016 (for ASIA) on my campus, and my paper on Gender Oppression was selected and published in Proceeding National Seminar on Corpus Linguistics UNY 2017.
You can learn English in fun ways with me! I’m waiting for your curiosity in learning English!
BEC is one of the creative breakthroughs in this millenial era that is surrounded by technologies and internet. The program and the teaching system that BEC offers is very suitable for both of the teacher and the students these days. In my opinion, this is such a great solution for those who want to learn, but busy. Other thing I like from BEC is that the staff is also very friendly, and communicative.
I have been teaching in BEC since 2017 and I enjoy teaching in BEC and being part of them as well. It’s really suitable for me (especially for those who are a bit busy but still want to teach a bit to keep their skills and knowledge on) because I can set the schedule with my students in a flexible way and vice versa. Besides, I am also really grateful because by joining BEC, it does not only enlarge my knowledge and strengthen my skills, but I can also have new network.
SIMPLE PRESENT TENSE
Simple Present Tense adalah kalimat yang paling umum digunakan di dalam Bahasa Inggris. Simple Present Tense berfungsi untuk menyatakan fakta, kebiasaan, hobi, rutinitas. Agar tidak terkecoh dengan Simple Present Progressive, yang perlu diingat adalah Simple Present Tense merupakan kalimat simpel, bukan untuk menyatakan sesuatu yang saat ini sedang dilakukan atau terjadi (in action). Simple Present Tense merujuk pada penyampaian fakta, dan fakta tidak akan berubah meskipun hari berganti dari kemarin, sekarang, maupun esok.
Rumus/formula untuk membuat kalimat Simple Present Tense adalah:
Subject + Verb1 (-s/-es) + Object/Keterangan
Yang perlu diperhatikan dalam Simple Present Tense adalah penggunaan subjek yang memengaruhi verb-nya. Jika subjek kalimat adalah orang ketiga tunggal (he, she, it), maka Verb yang digunakan berimbuhan –s/-es. Sementara Verb 1 merupakan kata kerja bentuk pertama, yaitu kata kerja dasar dalam bahasa Inggris. Object yang dimaksud di sini merupakan benda atau orang yang dikenai Verb. Keterangan bisa berarti keterangan waktu atau tempat atau cara melakukan sesuatu.
