STUDENTS' PERCEPTION OF CODE MIXING USED IN SUHAY SALIM YOUTUBE VIDEOS TOWARD STUDENTS CONFIDENCE IN SPEAKING ENGLISH
Bilingualism is the state in which people are forced to acquire and utilize a foreign language in addition to their native language. It connects them to a broader sense of knowledge and engagement. One of the ways that have proven to assist learners in increasing their second language skills and confidence is code-mixing. However, obstacles in foreign language acquisition and application in effective language engagement are unavoidable. The English language understanding is separated into numerous parts, with speaking being the most difficult to grasp. For an individual to speak English effectively, it is vital to pay attention not only to the structural component of the language but also to the issue of self-confidence, which strongly impacts someone to speak English regardless of the situation. This study aims to determine how the code mixing used by Suhay Salim in the selected YouTube videos affected the viewers' confidence in speaking English and whether code mixing videos impact students' English skills using the qualitative method. The participants were the English Education Department students at Universitas Pekalongan who are also the viewers of Suhay Salim’s YouTube video. After analyzing five participants' interview and questionnaire answers, this study has some results. The first result showed students' good perspectives on using code-mixing videos. The following finding in this study was about the impact of code-mixing videos on their linguistic aspect, and they feel more confident using code-mixing in speaking English.
