Abstract

Translanguaging is believed to better promote students' academic performance including in learning English as Foreign Language (EFL). On the other hand, there are many scholars who still perceive the practice of alternating languages in classroom may also bring challenges. However, those challenges may be perceived differently in Indonesian context especially from the students‟ lens. Hence, this research aims: 1) to investigate students‟ perception of student-directed translanguaging challenges in Indonesian EFL class, 2) to investigate students‟ perception of teacher-directed translanguaging challenges in Indonesian EFL class. A descriptive qualitative study was employed. The data were collected using questionnaires of 20 students of a private Junior High School in East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The data were analyzed through following activities: (1) data condensation, (2) data display, and (3) conclusion drawing/verification. The result indicated five challenges from student accounts for both type of classroom translanguaging (student-directed and teacher-directed translanguaging) namely indigenous language diversity, English only ideology, desire to be familiarized with English, and students' guilt. These findings shed light on a multilingual pedagogical practice and further research, which we would like to discuss further within this article.
