They are also not able to properly communicate in English. To overcome these problems, some learning models were used to teach environmental education as a tool to construct their knowledge. The study investigated the integrating environmental education into the PBL and PjBL methods in learning English. Quasi-experimental design, non-randomized control group, and pretest- posttest were used in the study.
