Abstract

This study focuses on identifying the language functions effective for fostering EFL(English as Foreign Language) interactive learning atmosphere. It explores the corpus of data taken from EFL teachers' utterances, which contain various types of language functions during classroom interaction. Secondary data cover in-depth interview to uncover the effectiveness of the language functions used. The analysis involves Tribus framework (2017) rooted in Jakobson's (1960) style of language function. The result showed that EFL teachers had employed various language functions during teaching and learning process with the dominant types covering referential function, phatic function, and emotive function. These functions can effectively foster interactive learning atmosphere in the EFL class, particularly in a high school setting with large class size. Future studies are expected to explore other EFL context in a higher level of learning to bring up other dominant functions effective for creating interactive learning process.
