Selamat datang! Welcome.
At St Mary’s College Gunnedah, students study Indonesian for 100 hours in Year 8. During this time, students will come to understand the cultural background of languages and employ practical skills in the use of language, through experience in reading, writing and oral/aural communication.
The classroom is an active one, where students experience speaking aloud in a range of activities. The program is enhanced through access to interactive language and cultural activities. The main aim of this course is to enjoy studying another language, and become more confident in using that language.
The students will have the opportunity to experience Indonesian cuisine. They will explore the intricate nature of Indonesian society and its culture. This knowledge is both relevant and important in developing an understanding and appreciation of our Asian neighbours, particularly as Australia develops trade in this region.
