Rizki Nurwahyuni


During the pandemic Covid-19, teaching and learning system has been changed to online learning mode, especially in teaching of English as a foreign language. This paper analyzes the students’ perception toward synchronous and asynchronous learning in speaking skill during pandemic Covid-19. There were 20 students of Intensive English Class at Language Development Unit at UIN Antasari Banjarmasin which were interviewed to know their perception on the synchronous and asynchronous learning in English speaking class. The data were analyzed descriptive-qualitatively. The result found that the students felt more anxious to speak English in synchronous learning mode by using teleconference application such as zoom and Google meet than to speak in asynchronous learning mode by using video recorder.
