Why Indonesians are Less Proficient in English?

As stated in many research studies that English proficiency among students in Indonesia is still lack. There are some major points that should be prioritized by the teachers and stakeholder. Here are points found in my mini-research.

Lack of Input

English is not mainly spoken outside the class. It is only studied and learned in school for 6 years and in university only in first semester (for non-English major students).

Fear of Making Mistake

For many students, mistake means 'the end of the world'. They will never try to avoid making mistake.
