Students will expand and deepen their understanding Indonesian society and develop their ability to communicate progressively more complex ideas in Indonesian. Topics covered may include challenges facing the new generation, migrant workers, contemporary nationalism and tackling environmental problems. Authentic materials such as short stories and media reports – and the key issues these materials raise – will be investigated through increasingly sophisticated Indonesian language use in class discussions, presentations and essays and short translation exercises.

At the end of this subject students will:

  • be able to use Indonesian to present summaries of and critical commentaries on issues raised in prescribed texts;
  • be able to express opinions in Indonesian through writing and orally on topics relevant to the study of Indonesia;
  • have expanded their knowledge of grammar appropriate for formal writing styles;
  • be able to translate short literary excerpts from Indonesian to English with the aid of a dictionary;
  • gain an understanding of various issues that inform contemporary Indonesian society.

Generic skills

On completion of this subject students should:

• develop communication skills through essay writing and seminar discussion;
• develop time management and planning skills;
• develop ability to work collaboratively
• develop ability to present argumentation and analysis in a foreign language
• generalise knowledge gained in class to wider context.
