Modern Javanese B sets out to take you under the skin of modern Javanese society through study of the Javanese language. The course builds on the basis covered in Modern Javanese A. It provides you with practice in speaking modern, everyday Javanese (both ngoko and krama). You also study Javanese hanacaraka script and expand your vocabulary through reading a number of texts in Roman and Javanese script. Classes are conducted in tutorial style. One class each week is devoted to study of Javanese script. Other classes stress active practice of formal spoken Javanese used in conversational situations as well as reading and text study.
