Cultural awareness on students' perceptions toward body’s spoken image used in greetings and introduction of Pondok Pesantren Darul Hijrah Putra Martapura

Fathul Zannah, Noormaliah Noormaliah


Students’ perceptions toward the body’s spoken image used in greeting and introduction of Pondok Pesantren Darul Hijrah Putra Martapura are supported to what the expert says that what is considered appropriate behavior in one culture is frequently inappropriate in another one. Based on an interview about that they said that students like and some students dislike English they like the Arabic language more. They only speak English in boarding school. Students cannot say in English if they don’t have an interesting topic and what they discuss. All of the students think most of the gestures are contradictive with local and Islamic religious values.
