Selamat Datang – Welcome.

The Victorian Curriculum expects students to learn another language through socialising, informing, creating, translating, reflecting and understanding. Lessons cover each of these areas and Intercultural Language Learning, which means, teaching a language through culture.

The main topic in 2018 for term 1 is ‘Olahraga’ (Sport). Foundation students will learn vocabulary for some sports as well as for colours, greetings and numbers to 5. Years 1&2 students will listen to and speak short sentences using familiar and new vocabulary. Years 3&4 students will extend their language learning to include role-plays, for example ‘Olahraga apa favoritmu? (What is your favourite sport?). They also count beyond 20. Years 5&6 students will revise all the language from foundation to 34’s and include more reading and writing in short paragraphs.

In Term 2 the topic is Kebudayaan (Culture), Term 3 the topic is Di Pasar (At the Market) and Term 4 is Pekerjaan (Occupations).

Throughout the year Language speaking competitions, incursions and excursions to Heathmont Secondary College will be facilitated through the Indonesian Program. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ibu Chris Breen (Indonesian Language Teacher) for more details.

Congratulations to the 2018 Indonesian Captains Ethaniel Tang and Mandy Seyed-Mohammadi.
