Pedagogia and JEES is two webs educational journal published by Muhammadiyah Sidoarjo University. All journals which exsist are written by lectures from UMSIDA and other universities, two of them are written by Megawati (2016a and 2016b). Pedagogia and JEES have colorful interface. Both of them have some similarities. The similarities are at the color of its interface, design of web, and many information about education can we get from there. Other than that, the differences between them are in language, month of publish and total of the journals. Pedagogia uses Indonesian for their journal otherwise JEES uses English. In the last four years, Pedagogia publishes their journal twice in a year. On February and August. Then JEES publishes their journal on April and October. In 2017, total journals which published in Pedagogia were 11 journals while journal in JEES were 4 journals. Mrs. Fika Megawati had published 2 different journals, the topic is the difficulties of students in learning English. In Pedagogia, she described that topic in general, but in JEES she described it specifically in the ability to write in English. The subjects taken in the two journals were different. In Pedagogia, she used non-English Department students became the subject of research while JEES used exchange students from Thailand as subjects of research. In the first journal (Pedagogia) the result is from 4 abilities in learning English, speaking is the most difficult abilities to achieve. The reason why they choose speaking are lack of vocabulary, hard to memorize, difficult pronunciation, fear of making mistakes, fear of ridiculed friends and lack of grammar knowledge. In the second journal (JEES) the result that inhibit exchange students’ self-efficacy are namely limited exposure and language materials, low confidence using English for daily conversation, and the low qualification’s teacher. In the first journal applied qualitative research method and use observation, recording, and questionnaire as the instruments while second journal applied descriptive study was implemented by closed-ended questionnaires in addition to interview and the result of writing task. I think that Pedagogia more interesting than JEES. Pedagogia also more understandable than JEES because it used Indonesian. But as English Department student, I think JEES interesting because Mrs. Fika uses understandable sentences. Moreover, I got a lot of information from those journals. Both Pedagogia and JEES have their respective advantages. Both were very informative and useful for us. It can help us find solutions for students’ difficulties in learning English. So, which one do you like? Pedagogia or JEES?
