Description This is the second and last introductory subject in the Indonesian Language Specialisation. The subject further develops the basic language and communication skills students acquired in Indonesian 101 through the use of activities designed to practice and reinforce Indonesian language and grammar skills. This subject will also introduce a greater focus on the socio-cultural and linguistic diversity found in Indonesia through online powerpoint lectures and accompanying notes. The subject focuses on four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing). Students with a background of study in the language need to obtain advice on their appropriate level of language study. During the first two weeks of class, the lecturer will monitor the performance of students and advise students who need to transfer to a higher class. Students should consult the Languages Academic Course Advisor or Subject Coordinator if they are unsure of their entry level.
