Abstract
This study aimed at investigating effectiveness of Learning Centre (LC) to improve Darmasiswa students’ Indonesian competence. LC was designed as a site where students were able to learn grammar of Indonesian autonomously. It was developed as students found it difficult to study grammar in cooperation with language skills in the class. Thus, they required an exclusive and discrete grammar lesson. The research participants involved nine foreign students of Darmasiswa program. The participants were trained on LC program and given chance to study grammar individually. To measure its effectiveness, two tests were applied, pre-test and post-test. Treatment in LC was done ten times. Result of both tests were compared and analyzed. The test and LC materials were developed and validated by an expert judge before their use. The materials were taken from books used for formal class lesson. The result of measurement fostered that LC with self-directed learning was effective to improve learners’ Indonesian language competence. This indicates that autonomous learning is worth practicing to promote students’ noticing.
