We have just published a sample scope and sequence for Stage 5 Indonesian – it can be accessed from the Stages 4 and 5 Indonesian page.
We have just published a unit starter (unit of work) and matching assessment task on "Dining out with Indonesian friends!", and updated the Stage 4 scope and sequence to align with these new resources.
The unit starter is fully resourced with everything you need to pick up and teach!
Access our support via the Stages 4 and 5 Indonesian page.
In response to teacher feedback, we have updated our sample speaking questions for the Indonesian Beginners and Continuers courses.
The questions we originally published were adapted from the old HSC Online site, and feedback indicated that the types of questions asked during the oral examination have changed since HSC Online was first published.
You can access the questions from the Indonesian Beginners site and Indonesian Continuers site respectively.
Ida Harsojo from the NSW School of Languages is seeking feedback regarding the support/assistance KJRI/KBRI can provide to Indonesian teachers to promote Indonesian in their schools in preparation for a meeting with Education Attache from KBRI, Canberra, Bpk Imran Hanafi.
Some examples may include:
- Pelangi program to fund dancers to go to schools
- teacher assistance
- university students to help schools voluntarily
- funding for small senior classes
- seed funding (3-years) for primary language programs
- Indonesian garden.
Please email Ida Harsojo by 14 November 2019 with your suggestions.
The NSW Department of Education has developed a new resource to support teachers of Indonesian 7-10.
Waking up in Indonesia embeds the use of online collaboration tools and 21st century learning skills to support students studying the 100-hour mandatory Stage 4 or 100/200 elective Stage 5 Indonesian courses.
Students work collaboratively to research a topic of cultural interest in Indonesia and make a presentation (digital and/or face-to-face) that demonstrates their learning. They investigate key Indonesian words (Stage 4) and conduct an Indonesian Q&A interview (Stage 5) related to their chosen topic.

The new Next Door Land e-learning game takes players on a virtual journey through Australia and Indonesia. Along the way, you’ll get to experience the hustle and bustle of Jakarta, race to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge, learn to play the gamelan, surf near Perth, cook Indonesian dishes and play cricket in Adelaide. You’ll also learn about the history of both countries, their traditions, cultures, architecture and mythology.
Next Door Land aims to foster people-to-people links and promote cultural understanding among Indonesians and Australians, particularly primary and junior secondary students. The game includes aspects of history, music, sports, architecture, and mythology. Next Door Land is designed mainly for primary and junior secondary school students. However, the game is also practical for teenagers and adults who are interested to learn more about Indonesia and Australia in a fun way.
Next Door Land was created by the Australian Embassy with an Indonesian game developer, Agate. The Ministry of Education and Culture, Asia Education Foundation and Australia-Indonesia Youth Association (AIYA) have also been involved. It is now available for free download at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s iOS and Google Play pages, as well as ABC Splash and the education portal of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture.

Here are some online resources for the Olympics that Language teachers may find useful if preparing units of work themed around the upcoming games in Rio.
AOC Australian Olympic Education – Resources that align with different learning areas, general capabilities and across different categories. Whilst not-Languages focused, these current AOC resources reflect the upcoming Rio games and can be adapted to suit the target language being taught.
MLTAV & AOC Olympic Resources for Language Teachers – These resources were co-developed to look at aspects of the Olympics a few years back through the application of target language. They are cover themes of Olympic activities, symbols, countries, sports, training and schedules. Language teachers can integrate these into units of work they may be undertaking during the Olympics and flexibly deliver them based on their students’ language learning needs. These are available for Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
The Next Door Land App is an initiative of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, through the Australian Embassy in Jakarta and the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture.
The App is available for free downloand on all Apple and Android Devices. With both Indonesian and English functionality, the game takes the player on a virtual journey through Australia and Indonesia and is supported by a comprehensive study guide developed by the Asia Education Foundation.

What resources do you use to promote Indonesian as a subject to students and parents in your school?
I am looking to create a bank of resources for use in schools that focus on promoting Indonesian as a subject to students, parents and the wider community.
If you are willing to share documents, PPTs etc that you have created, or know of links to resources available online, please email to me at email@example.com
