Survey for Workplace English in Indonesia (Published)
The present study uses survey to investigate the use of English in Indonesian workplaces. Thirty-six respondents who are polytechnic alumni who already work and managers in four different companies were asked to complete the questionnaire. The study found that over 80% of the respondents suggested that English was one of the requirements to obtain a job. This can be seen from the time they applied for a job in which English was used either as ‘complete language’ or language mixed (code mixing) with Indonesian. English also helps respondents to be promoted to higher level. In addition, the survey uncovers the frequency of use of sub skills of English used for listening, speaking, reading and writing in Indonesian workplaces and how the alumni coped with those skills.
