Subject Area: Indonesian Studies

'Introductory Indonesian' is a full year subject, divided into two semesters ('Introductory Indonesian A' and 'Introductory Indonesian B'). It is an elementary level Indonesian language course for students with no prior knowledge of the language. Based on communicative and task-based approach, it is designed to develop proficiency in aural-oral and written communication skills and to provide students with knowledge and understanding of of the societies and culture of Indonesian/Malay speaking countries.

Students develop their listening and speaking skills through a number of different activities, as well as their reading and writing skills in Indonesian/Malay. Vocabulary and grammatical structures are presented in the context of culturally relevant issues. Topics include personal communication, travel, Archipelago, media &the press as well as national and international concerns. A lecture on basic grammatical and linguistic features and on the history of modern Indonesia/n (in English) and on cultural aspects (in English) will complement the exercises and discussions conducted as target language activities in class.
On completion of ARTS1600 and ARTS1601 students will be able to enrol in upper level Indonesian subjects and studies courses.
