Abstract

Teachers in primary school expressed concern about students' lack of understanding of Javanese language, especially in the use of Javanese language levels. Although Javanese language is their mother tongue, students did not have many opportunities to learn Javanese language well. This study aims to describe students' barriers on learning Javanese Language. The study belongs to descriptive qualitative research. Ninety eight students, seven teachers, and two principals from five different schools involved in the study. The data were collected using semi-structured interviews and observation. Interactive analysis was used to analyze data while in the field. Triangulation of data sources and techniques were used to test the credibility of the data. Results of the study demonstrate that there are lots barriers on learning Javanese language for students such as: (1) language habits in family, school, and neighbourhood, (2) Javanese language complexity, (3) lack of competent Javanese language teachers, (4) limited hours of Javanese language lessons, and (5) lack of media and learning resources that can support on learning Javanese language. It is important that schools, parents, communities, and governments should work together to overcome the barriers so that students do not lose their identity.
