Abstract

2013 Curriculum enacted in Indonesia has put English as an extra-curricular activity in primary school, no longer a content subject. An irony then comes into the debate, as most English teaching practitioners consider that teaching English as a foreign language should be initiated since young ages. The long process of elevating English proficiency since young ages should now be put behind. Not becoming a content subject anymore, it means that there is no standard of English teaching to achieve. These issues seek for the solutions. One of the proposed solutions is best equipping home-room teachers from all grades in designing English extra-curricular activities, with the touch of local wisdom so as to make it more meaningful. It is as a support to the implementation of thematic teaching and character building. As the concept of teaching English for primary school students is to give them experience in using the language, the teacher can opt singing as one of the activities in class. Translating the Indonesian children song suggested by the weekly sub theme contributes the students’ understanding towards the lesson. These could be achieved by conducting home-room English teachers training of how to translate the songs and make them possible to be used in class.
