The results revealed that the experiences of failed LET examinees are associated with themes such as Time Management, Unpreparedness, Learning Environment, and The Effect of the Support System. Moreover, the study revealed the coping mechanism of failed LET examinees with the themes: Negative Reinforcement, Diverting attention to other things, and Good Support. Furthermore, the failed LET examinee’s insights showed the themes: Setting goals, Health and Expectations, and Integration of Optimism and Pessimism. The analyzed findings of this study unveil the various experiences encountered by the failed LET examinees and how they cope. Thus, this study contributes significant knowledge to examinees who will take the LET in the future and will retake the LET.</em></p> Bernardo Jr. Olvina Kimberly Casssandra Basadre Roshell Penarejo Cristy Grace Ngo Copyright (c) 2024 Bernardo Jr. Olvina, Kimberly Casssandra Basadre, Roshell Penarejo, Cristy Grace Ngo 2023-11-30 2023-11-30 3 1 1 31 10.54012/ijcer.v3i1.242 The Influence of Planning towards Educational Management in Realizing Madrasah Educational Governance <p>This study aims at discussing the influence of planning towards educational management in realizing madrasah educational governance at Madrasah PUI Ciamis.

The study also used total population sampling to select the number of respondents. Based on the findings, there is a high level of pop culture use, particularly on other media platforms, such as English cinema, music, and mobile phones. Moreover, AB-English students have a very high integrative and instrumental motivation to learn the language. Finally, the overall correlation for both variables suggest a moderate positive correlation with a threshold of 0.567, implying that learners with a high-level use of pop culture media are more likely to be integratively and instrumentally motivated to learn English, especially when using other media platforms, such as English cinema, music, and mobile phones.</p> Marie Franchesca Placer Cristy Grace Ngo Sonairah Nano Aimae Calambro Copyright (c) 2024 Marie Franchesca Placer, Cristy Grace Ngo, Sonairah Nano, Aimae Calambro 2024-01-09 2024-01-09 3 1 39 46 10.54012/ijcer.v3i1.237 Empowering Reading Habit of English Fiction Books to Improve English Vocabulary: Evidence from Students in an Indonesian Higher Education <p>Low English literacy has a major impact on the education sector. In particular, it has an impact on less qualified human resources. This study aims to explore the students’ perception of reading habits on English fiction books to improve English vocabulary in Indonesian higher education. This study used a qualitative case study method. Data were gathered through semi-structured interviews with four students consisting of two female and two male students from the English Education Department. The results of the study reveal that students believe that reading fiction books can help them memorize English vocabulary, and English fiction books can enrich English vocabulary, especially new words. On the other hand, some challenges appear in reading English fiction books. These include the difficulty of understanding unfamiliar words in English fiction books among male students and the need for sufficient time to read English fiction books completely. Finally, the implication of this study was discussed.</p> Sri Wahyuningsih Anif Ludfiyani Copyright (c) 2024 Sri Wahyuningsih, Anif Ludfiyani 2024-01-23 2024-01-23 3 1 47 53 10.54012/ijcer.v3i1.262 ICT Engagement and Digital Competence of Preservice English Teachers <p>The study on ICT Engagement and Digital Competence of Preservice English Teachers was a descriptive correlational study conducted among 103 preservice English teachers at the University of Mindanao-Matina Campus, Davao City. This study aimed to identify the levels of ICT engagement and digital competence of preservice English teachers and examine the prevalent relationship between the variables. In gathering the data, this study adopted questionnaires and sampled the total population. The data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and Pearson's r correlation. Based on the findings, the preservice English teachers have a high level of ICT engagement and a very high level of digital competence. Moreover, the correlation between the variables is moderate, positive, and direct with r-value of 0.427, which suggests that ICT engagement is a construct of digital competence—the more regulated to engage in ICT a person is, the more competent they would become in using ICT. Moreover, the results specify that ICT-related training and support given to language teachers must revolve around troubleshooting digital issues and digital content creation. This study, as a whole, further explored, quantified, and discussed emerging interests in the role of technology in language education, addressing its empirical gap.</p> Al-Farouk Abdul Rahman Radiamoda Cristy Grace Ngo Degrace Budadong Chary Mae Obiena Copyright (c) 2024 Al-Farouk Abdul Rahman Radiamoda, Cristy Grace Ngo, Degrace Budadong, Chary Mae Obiena 2024-01-23 2024-01-23 3 1 54 64 10.54012/ijcer.v3i1.265
