The course is intended to extend the language experience gained in second year, and in the first semester of third year level study to give more confidence in the correct use of grammar and to consolidate fluency. By the end of the course students will be able to converse in a way acceptable to a native speaker on a diverse range of subjects using appropriate idiomatic expressions. They should also be able to translate materials such as newspaper articles from English into Indonesian and from Indonesian into English.

To achieve these aims, the course falls into three components:

  • Indonesian-English Translation
  • English-Indonesian Translation
  • Communicative Skills

These are coordinated so that the components reinforce each other. In this way instructors try to restrict the number of new vocabulary items so that students may concentrate on strengthening communicative competence and gain confidence in mastery of grammar. 

Reading and translation materials are organized into several topics which may vary from one day to the next. Topics may include current affairs, media, religion, ethnicity, gender, literature, performing arts, media, pop culture and others.

Students should

(a) be able to hold analytical discussions in sophisticated Indonesian on a wide range of topics and current and historical issues

(d) be familiar with a variety of advanced Indonesian social-cultural and literary texts
