Other information

This course is suitable for absolute beginners as well as learners with some prior knowledge.  The content will be based on the textbook, with supplementary materials provided by the tutor. Activities will be adapted to cater for the varying levels of experience of the students.

Indonesia is Australia’s largest and nearest neighbour in the Asian region and has a diverse and fascinating culture. The national language, Bahasa Indonesia, is written in the same alphabet as is used for English. It doesn’t make distinctive use of tones, and the language does not have complex agreement rules, tenses and plurals.  This makes Indonesian a very accessible language for beginners.

REQUIREMENTS Students should purchase the textbook,  Indonesian for Beginners, Katherine Davidsen & Yusep Cuandani..

TUTOR: Angela is a retired Indonesian language teacher who has many years’ teaching experience in secondary schools at all levels, including VCE.

Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.
