ACICIS is currently developing the Indonesian Language Short Course (ILSC), an intensive language training course for students from beginners to advanced level in Indonesian language. Running in the university vacation periods, the program would either fast-track or supplement a student’s language studies or could be taken as an introduction or a ‘taster’ to the Indonesian language and culture for students exploring an interest in Indonesia.

With the pilot program to run at the end of 2017 , the course will be structured within three-week modules (with the option of taking two consecutive modules) which will include Indonesian language tutorials, cultural classes, a variety of seminars and excursions.

To develop the program, ACICIS has convened an Advisory Panel with members from ACICIS’ member universities and experts in Indonesian Language.

The members of the Indonesian Language Short Course Advisory Panel are:

A/Prof David Reeve, UNSW Australia.
Irianto Ryan Tedja, Murdoch University.
Professor Lesley Harbon, University of Technology Sydney.
Dr Richard Curtis, University of the Sunshine Coast.
Dr Michelle Kohler, Flinders University.
Dr Taufiq Tanasaldy, University of Tasmania.
Dr Ben Murtagh, SOAS, University of London.
Dr Paul Thomas, Monash University.
Dr Novi Djenar, University of Sydney
Dr Michael Ewing, University of Melbourne.
Dr Timothy Hassall, The Australian National University.

We’d like to thank all Advisory Panel members in advance for their support in the development of this program.
