Explanation Text


(Untuk membantu teman- teman yang kesulitan menyelesaikan tugas Bhs. Inggris...)
Hampir dapat hukuman dari Pak Karim  karena tidak menyelesaikan tugas di folder... Karena bingung, apa itu "Explanation Text", bagaimana  "Explanation Text"... Ternyata, The Explanation Text in English, sama dengan Karangan Eksposisi di pelajaran Bahasa Indonesia. Karangan eksposisi disebut juga karangan paparan, atau karangan yang berusaha menerangkan suatu hal, serta karangan yang menjelaskan suatu proses.
Tujuan dari Explanation Text yaitu pembaca mendapat pengetahuan atau informasi yang sejelas – jelasnya.

 Ini dia... The Example of Explanation Text

Tsunami

The term of “tsunami” comes from the Japanese which means harbour ("tsu") and wave ("nami"). A tsunami is a series of waves generated when water in a lake or a sea is rapidly displaced on a massive scale.

A tsunami can be generated when the sea floor abruptly deforms and vertically displaces the overlying water. Such large vertical movements of the earth's crust can occur at plate boundaries.

Subduction of earthquakes are particularly effective in generating tsunami, and occur where denser oceanic plates slip under continental plates.

As the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium, it radiates across the ocean like ripples on a pond.

Tsunami always bring great damage. Most of the damage is caused by the huge mass of water behind the initial wave front, as the height of the sea keeps rising fast and floods powerfully into the coastal area.

Chocolate
Are we wondered how we get chocolate from? Well this time we will enter the amazing world of chocolate so we can understand exactly we are eating.
Chocolate starts a tree called cacao tree. This tree grows in equatorial regions, especially in place such as South America, Africa, and Indonesia. The cacao tree produces a fruit about the size of a small pine apple. In side the fruits are the tree’s seeds. They are also known as coco beans.
Next, the beans are fermented for about a week, dried in the sun. After that they are shipped to the chocolate maker. The chocolate maker starts by roasting the beans to bring out the flavour. Different beans from different places have different qualities and flavour. So they are often shorted and blended to produce a distinctive mix.
The next process is winnowing. The roasted beans are winnowed to remove the meat nib of the cacao bean from its shell. Then the nibs are blended. The blended nibs are ground to make it a liquid. The liquid is called chocolate liquor. It tastes bitter.
All seeds contain some amount of fat and cacao beans are not different. However, cacao beans are half fat, which is why the ground nibs from liquid. It is pure bitter chocolate.

Hallow salam kenal Dik,
Wuih....masih SMU sudah sepinter itu English-nya, tidak seperti saya dulu yah, he..he..he..yang suka ketinggalan pelajaran pada bahasa Inggris.

BTW, dulu sebenarnya saya suka banget sama pelajaran tersebut, apalagi waktu masih di SMP dan kelas I SMU, akan tetapi setelah naik kelas II, saya jadi tertinggal, kebetulan gurunya gak bagus, dan gak ramah, jadinya merosot bahasa Inggris saya, sayang yah, saya gagal mengendalikan emosi terhadap karakter guru tsb, akhirnya saya sendiri yang merugi, hingga kelas III malahan.

Wah, kok jadi curhat barang he..he..he....have a great day Dik!
