Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Use an active vocabulary of around 1600 items.
- Recognise and produce phrase and sentence structures that enable them to converse and write extended passages on a wide range of non-technical topics, and to read short authentic non-technical texts with the aid of concise vocabulary lists.

- Demonstrate a cultural understanding of Indonesian perceptions and practices regarding such topics as: the participation of men and women in paid work and child care, diplomatic relations with Australia and cultural perceptions of Australians, tackling of law reform, and traditional versus modern medicine.
