SELT Survey Results

Students read and listen to texts on a variety of social / cultural topics and discuss a wide range of social/ cultural issues. They develop their writing ability by translating modified English texts into Indonesian, and develop their understanding of grammar points through written and spoken exercises.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Use an active vocabulary of around 1200 items.
  2. Recognise and produce phrase and sentence structures that enable them to converse and write passages on a range of non-technical topics, and to read short authentic non-technical texts with the aid of substantial vocabulary lists.
  3. Converse and write in contexts such as discussion of cultural diversity, personal relationships, employment, education, human rights, and religion.
  4. Demonstrate a cultural understanding of Indonesian perceptions and practices regarding such topics as: ethnic diversity and national unity, boss-worker relationships and informal employment, learning styles, protection of basic human rights, and religious beliefs.

You will need dictionaries for this course. The following are recommended as suitable for this level:


*Kamus Indonesia-Inggris (An Indonesian-English dictionary)

Author: J. Echols and H. Shadily

Edition: 3rd edition

Policies

ANU has educational policies, procedures and guidelines, which are designed to ensure that staff and students are aware of the University’s academic standards, and implement them. Students are expected to have read the Academic Misconduct Rule before the commencement of their course. Other key policies and guidelines include:

Assessment Requirements

The ANU is using Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website Students may choose not to submit assessment items through Turnitin. In this instance you will be required to submit, alongside the assessment item itself, hard copies of all references included in the assessment item.

Moderation of Assessment

Marks that are allocated during Semester are to be considered provisional until formalised by the College examiners meeting at the end of each Semester. If appropriate, some moderation of marks might be applied prior to final results being released.

Participation

How to prepare for classes

* Reading class

i) Read the passage to find answers to the comprehension questions, and write your answers. Write them in the form of key words only (either English or Indonesian). Write down just enough to jog your memory later, i.e. to remind you of the key facts. Avoid copying out entire sentences.

ii) Now read the section called Kata dan Ungkapan yang berguna (Useful words and phrases). This will help you get ready to talk about the ideas of the passage.

iii) Practise answering the comprehension questions orally. Imagine you have been asked each question in turn, and practise saying an answer. As you do this activity, look less and less at your written answers until you do not need to look at them at all. Be creative and varied in how you say your answers. You will probably use a lot of the Kata dan ungkapan yang berguna (Useful words and phrases), plus a lot of other words/ expressions from your own stock of Indonesian, plus other words/ expressions from the passage that strike you as useful. Give yourself a good speaking workout at this point.

 

* Grammar class 

Read carefully the explanation page of the assigned unit. You are not expected to do the written exercises before class. As some of them will be done during class time, please come along with the answers still blank on the page. (If you want to do them before class as well, then do them on a separate print-out of the page.) Answers to all the grammar exercises are on our Wattle site.

 

* Communicative Skills class

No preparation required. But it is an excellent idea to read/ listen to/ view some of the supplementary, optional resources on that week•s topic from the Wattle site.

 

* Translation class 

Read the assigned English text and prepare a translation into Indonesian. You do not need to write out a translation of the entire text. You might prefer to write down only a translation of certain tricky words and phrases. All that matters is that you come ready to translate the whole text aloud in class.

 

Note: as well as the essential materials, our Wattle site contains a lot of supplementary material about the topics covered in the course. This is optional. However, you are strongly urged to explore it. As well as being interesting in its own right, it provides a lot of valuable background information you can draw on (e.g.) during class discussions, when comprehending set readings on that topic, and in the oral exams.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a core part of our culture as a community of scholars. At its heart, academic integrity is about behaving ethically. This means that all members of the community commit to honest and responsible scholarly practice and to upholding these values with respect and fairness. The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with. The University has policies and procedures in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Visit the following Academic honesty & plagiarism website for more information about academic integrity and what the ANU considers academic misconduct. The ANU offers a number of services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. The Academic Skills and Learning Centre offers a number of workshops and seminars that you may find useful for your studies.

Online Submission

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Hardcopy Submission
