Narrative Introduction to Culinary in Tourism: A Study on Vocational Education Program Students

Maharani Patria Ratna


The preparation of narrative text in foreign language learning for tourism needs to be carefully prepared by students. Lecturers as bridges are tasked with providing models and guiding students in the current era of distance learning. This study aims to find patterns and, at the same time, criticize how vocational students enter the narrative of culinary introductions in the Japanese for Tourism course. The data is in the form of student personal documents arranged in groups. The results of this study indicate that, in general, students do not find difficulties when compiling a culinary introduction narrative. However, it is necessary to provide a further briefing to make the information conveyed to tourists more detailed.
