Abstract

Learning a language means learning its culture. Local wisdom as a part of a culture is an important and inseparable aspect of a language of a community. The local wisdom is usually inherited from generation to generation mostly by a word of mouth. It is in stories, proverbs, songs, and riddles which is known as folklores. In a country such as Indonesia, a big archipelago country, there a lot of folklores to be used in English language teaching. In this country, where English has a status as a foreign language, the culture of the English speaking countries has been learnt for a long period of time by the English language learners. Exposing a lot by the culture of those inner circle countries, it is now the time for the practitioner, especially the English teachers at universities, to move further and incorporate the local wisdom in folklores into English short stories in university classroom writing. The process of incorporating the local wisdom in folklores into the English short stories will stimulate the students’ creativity in writing. In this paper, the writer will discuss about the reasons why the English teachers in Indonesia especially at universities should incorporate the local wisdom in folklores into English short stories in classroom writing and provide the practical steps on how to incorporate the local wisdom in folklores into the English short stories
