LEVEL 2 (Elementary)
Course Description This course is the continuation of Level 1 and aims to build upon students’ basic Indonesian language knowledge in order to bring their language skills up to the lower intermediate level. As with Level 1, the materials in Level 2 are designed to be functional and topical in order to allow students to learn the language in context. With topics ranging from ‘Describing oneself’ to ‘Entertainment’, and through a variety of communicative activities in class, students at this level are expected to complete the course with lower intermediate Indonesian communication skills sufficient to navigate a range of everyday Indonesian social settings in a basic fashion. Longer reading texts in the Level 2 course materials are intended to improve students’ vocabulary and reading skills and to provide a bridge to the next level in the program (Level 3).
Learning Outcomes At the end of the course, students who successfully complete this level should be able to:

  1. Communicate using basic Indonesian language functions;
  2. Demonstrate knowledge and correct usage of basic Indonesian grammar: verbs, prefixes, suffixes, conjunctions, and participles.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge and correct usage of approximately 750 – 1500 words of Indonesian vocabulary.
