This is an introductory subject for students with no prior knowledge of Indonesian. This subject will provide students with the skills to communicate and interact with Indonesian people on a range of topics, to find their way around in Indonesia, and to understand basic information written in Indonesian. It provides the foundation for an understanding of Indonesian culture and society norms, through situating the use of the Indonesian language in relevant social and cultural contexts. Learning the Indonesian language, even as a beginner, cannot be separated from learning the cultural significance in Indonesia of taboos, gestures, the concept of time, and etiquette, all of which are markedly different from Australian cultural norms.
