Abstract

Bachelor degree study program of Mechanical Engineering Education, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, UniversitasNegeri Semarang (Unnes), is a study program that requires students to take general subject named BahasaInggris or English. By taking the subject, students are expected to speak English with right grammar and vocabulary or to express their ideas in English in written and spoken form. They are also expected to understand other people’s ideas written and spoken in English. However, students see grammar as specter. Due to grammar, they can not be free to write and speak English. Even without grammar, vocabulary known by them can not be orderly and understood by other people. Without grammar, communication between one person and another involving English can not go on effectively. Problem of this research is failure of sixth semester students from Bachelor degree study program of Mechanical Engineering Education, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Unnes in getting mid-term test ideal score (>B) of English subject relating to grammar and held in even semester of 2018/2019 school year. Meanwhile, English material containing grammar has been learnt by them since they were in elementary school. Moreover, English is part of advances in science and technology surrounding them. Based on the problem, this research is aimed to answer research question about grammatical understanding of sixth semester students from Bachelor degree study program of Mechanical Engineering Education, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Unnes in even semester of 2018/2019 school year and research question about forming factors of the grammatical understanding by using mixed research method. The achievement of this research is percentage increase of sixth semester students from Bachelor degree study program of Mechanical Engineering Education, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Unnes in even semester of 2018/2019 school year in getting mid-term test ideal score (>B) of English subject due to systemic functional grammar taught from the beginning of lecture.
