Abstract


In early 2020, Indonesia was infected with coronavirus. The Indonesian government implemented an online education system to combat the coronavirus's spread. This transition to the learning system causes a change in teaching strategy, as the learning process has shifted from the classroom to the online environment. This study determines teachers' strategies for teaching English via online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic and the effectiveness of that strategy in teaching English via the online learning system. We use the descriptive qualitative method in this study. Two English teachers at SMK Wisudha Karya Kudus were the subjects of this study. Interviews, observation, and documentation were used to elicit data. The data was analysed by collecting, condensing, displaying, and concluding. Two English teachers at SMK Wisudha Karya Kudus were the subjects of this study. The findings showed English teachers used various strategies when teaching English online during the Covid-19 pandemic. The strategies included indirect learning strategies, time management, technology, engaging learning media, and developing communication with students. These strategies are highly beneficial to teachers in teaching with technological tools and learning applications. Using videos to teach can help students avoid boredom, and these strategies can also assist students in achieving learning goals during the Covid-19 pandemic.
