- The study of language has been increasingly inseparable from the study of literature (Novianti, 2016). Therefore, it is suggested that working with literature in the classroom focus on integrating language and literature for more comprehensive and enjoyable learning activities. Literature-based instruction is one of the teaching language strategies by using literary works that are suitable for teaching English. In line with this, this study aims to explain the integrated study of language and literature in teaching English through literature-based instruction in EFL classroom. This is a qualitative case study conducted in an Indonesian Islamic Junior High School at Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Data were obtained through interview, observation, and documentation techniques of data collection. The data gathered were analyzed qualitatively through Miles and Huberman stages of condensation, display, and drawing conclusion. The study result showed that the literature-based instruction in teaching English for EFL students in an Indonesian Islamic Junior High School is very necessary to be developed and practiced. This integrated study of language and literature is practically rich of activities due to the teaching purposes, namely (1) reading and literary work, (2) speaking and literary work, (3) listening and literary work, and (4) writing and literary work. Indeed, teaching English through literature-based instruction is an evidence that language and literature can be taught two in one formula as an integrated study to develop the students’ ability in both language and literature skills.
