    Abstract

    Recently, the trend in teaching and learning process is by utilizing the educational technologies. One of the educational technologies is praat software. This software is beneficial to assess whether student’s intonation is appropriate or not to the native speaker of language. The writer has conducted one study by utilizing this software to a Japanese student. One factor that makes a listener could understand an utterance is an intonation of a speaker. Intonation is a symptom of prosodic, which is closely related to sentence structure and interrelated to a sentence in a discourse. It is especially discussed in acoustics phonetics, which studies a language feature as sound waves that distributed through air. Sounds or utterances of Indonesian will be audible if uttered by a native speaker of Indonesian, but it will be strange if it is uttered by a foreign student who was studying Indonesian. This study examined how foreign speaker intonation (a native Speaker of Japanese) in uttering Indonesian directives. This research describes suprasegmental sounds related to Indonesian intonation, such as intonation pattern, juncture group, and contour (pre contour/primer contour). It is a qualitative research with Linguistics-phonetics approach. Furthermore, it is a case study of a Japanese student who was studying Indonesian at BIPA University of Indonesia on the year 2005/2006. The data is taken from Miss Maki’s utterances, which recorded in FISIP UI laboratory. The result shows that praat software is very helpful in analyzing the first record, segmentation result, and data manipulation result. Therefore, this study is expected to provide us with an opportunity to utilize the educational technologies in learning in more beneficial and attractive way. Key words: Understanding Indonesian Directive, Intonation, Praat Software, Educational Technologies
