Learn Indonesian Language at Jakarta School - Self Paced. Design your own Weekly Class Schedule

What topics are covered by the course?

FOUNDATIONS (BEGINNER) COURSES introduce students to Bahasa Indonesia, then go on to provide them the skills necessary to survive in most day-to-day social and business situations. Courses focus on vocabulary acquisition and the use of simple grammatical structures.

INTERMEDIATE COURSES concentrate less on vocabulary acquisition and more with the complex grammatical structures necessary for true ‘conversational fluency.’

ADVANCED COURSES move away from "studying the language," and focus on "USING THE LANGUAGE" in genuine ways, so that students can develop the advanced reading, writing, listening and speaking skills necessary to truly live their lives in Bahasa Indonesia. Classes are comprised of much reading and media-viewing, followed by lively debate between the student and Mentor. Students are also welcome to introduce industry-specific material to their Advanced classes, in order that their Mentors can help them develop work-related language skills.

Who should attend?

LSI Courses are designed for "dedicated" adult learners seeking 'extremely rapid language acquisition.' Given the Program's fast pace, students are required to be 18+ years of age (although exceptions are occasionally made for mature 16- and 17-year-olds). Students should have a basic understanding of English (the language of instruction).

There is no prerequisite for 'absolute beginners,' but 'non-beginners' are are required to submit a Placement Test with their Enrollment.

What will I be able to do on completion?

Graduates of the Foundations (Beginner) Course Levels are able to understand sentences and expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance ; communicate in tasks requiring a direct exchange of information ; and convey thoughts in personal matters related to their background, immediate environment and immediate needs.

Graduates of the Intermediate Course Levels are able to understand the main ideas of complex text dealing with both concrete and abstract topics ; interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes interaction with native speakers possible without strain for either party ; produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects ; and explain viewpoints on topical issues, giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.

Graduates of the Advanced Course Levels are able to understand with ease virtually everything heard or read ; summarise information from different spoken and written sources ; reconstruct arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation ; express themselves spontaneously, fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.

How will I be assessed?

Student Assessment is 'ongoing.' Upon completion of each course level, grades are awarded based on performance during 26 hours of supervised practice and performance in a range of written assignments.
