SpartAce Couple: Romance In Episode 308


As expected, SA couple fans are cheering after watching last episode, 308. Actually, we got many JK piggy back JH from fans cams. Many fans took their pictures while doing their missions in a market. In addition, after it's aired, we got many SA moments captured by cameras. 



Opening scene made me giggling...Ji Suk Jin often gives us some fishy hints.


the PD's gave SA pictures through instagram which made we cheered cheerfully. Then, it's aired and voila, lots of SA moments were captured. Of course, the fans yelled loudly and cheerfully. We think that our ship sail smoothly and faster.




















We hope that they are real, but we never know, right. We just enjoy their romantic moment through our television or laptop. But we are so happy, am I right everyone....

Keep shipping the couple and it made us joy.

SpartAce Couple: Romance In Episode 306

It's so exciting finding out your bias couple are in action every episode. In this episode, I found out some lovely interaction between JK and JH. And for me, it was sooooooo cute.

The first part was in first game. They worked together. As we know, they never fail when they work together.




JK guided and supported JH when JH did her game.

JK said he love it when JH was on his team.


They worked together again and did it.

When JK said, "Trust me", then JH decided to trust him and followed what he did.

SpartAce Couple: Romance In Episode 305

In episode 305, JK had a match against UFC fighter. It was ssireum. JK is good in playing ssireum but now his contender was a UFC fighter. Before JK played the match. He undid his cap and gave it to JH. I think it became his habit, before doing some missions, he often entrust his goods to JH. We can see, he also took something (maybe his phone) out of his pocket and JH were ready to take it.

JK wore his cap

JK's cap was on JH's cap and JK took something out from his pocket, JH's hand was ready to take it

JH massaged JK's shoulders

When they were in the last game, JK was the first player against the guests (avengers). JK were going to face the heaviest and strong contender. We can see JH's face, she looked worried.

Worried JH watching JK against the Asian Bear (Kim Joon Hyun)
Annoyed JH watching JK's legs wrapped by the UFC fighter

Perkembangan Bahasa Anak

Menurut Piaget dan Vygotsky, Tahap-tahap perkembangan bahasa anak adalah sebagai berikut (Tarigan:1988):

Pada usia 0- 0,5 tahun, anak mulai masuk pada tahap meraban. Anak mengeluarkan suara-suara tanpa arti. Pada usia 0,5-1 tahun anak masuk pada tahap pra linguistik, di tahap ini anak mulai mengeluarkan kata-kata yang tanpa arti (non sense). Di usia 1-2 tahun, anak mulai masuk pada tahap memproduksi kalimat suku kata atau disebut juga tahap holofrastik. Pada tahap ini anak mulai memproduksi kata seperti mama, papa, mamam, ga, mau, dll. Pada usia 2-3 tahun, anak mulai memproduksi kalimat dua kata seperti: mau makan. gak ikut, gak mau, mau minum, dll. Pada usia 3-4 tahun, anak sudah mulai berkembang tata bahasanya. Dan di usia 4-5 tahun, tata bahasa yang dimiliki sudah hampir mirip seperti dewasa (pra dewasa)

Di usia 6-7 tahun, anak memiliki kosakata yang dapat dikomunikasikan sekitar 2500 kata. Mereka mampu menyerap 20.000-50.000 kata. Anak mampu membuat kalimat sederhana dalam bentuk kalimat pendek. Pada saat tertentu, anak sudah mampu mengucapkan kalimat lengkap (SPOK).

Pada usia 8-9 tahun, anak mampu bercakap-cakap dengan menggunakan kosakata yang dimilikinya dan mampu mengemukakan ide dan pikirannya meski masih sering dalam bentuk verbal.

Masuk usia 10-11 tahun, anak sudah mampu berbicara dalam waktu yang relatif panjang dan lama. Mereka pun sudah mampu memahami pembicaraan.

di usia 12 tahun, anak mampu menyerap 50.000 kata dan mampu berbahasa seperti orang dewasa.
