This paper focused on the semantic context used by the respondents post on social media through language development. Descriptive-phenomenology research design was employed in this study. The subjects include the third-year students of Bachelor of Secondary Education major in English. This study discovered four language developments namely: Expressive Language Development, Receptive Language Development, Expository Language Development, and Social Language Development. From the above findings, the following conclusions were drawn: The respondents shared different feelings in the use of languages. Respondents shared posts that had something to do with their feelings at a specific time; and Expressive and social are the most common used in semantic context; this means that respondents are posting to express themselves in social media and also to communicate with others using the social media platform. On the other hand, expository is the least in the reason that respondents are not posting for others, but for themselves. Furthermore, the following recommendations are offered: Respondents are encouraged to use complete sentence in expressing themselves in social media; Respondents must be aware of the functions of different words when use in sentence; English teachers are encouraged to provide activities to help the students in improving language development; English teachers are encouraged to use the conceptualized activities in improving language development in semantic context of the learners; and Future researchers are encouraged to conduct related researches in language development.
