Program outline

The 2015 Indonesian in-country program will be held in Padang, West Sumatra, during trimester 3 (summer 2015-2016).

In-Country Language programs provide a 'total immersion' experience, offering second, third and advanced level students the opportunity to spend between six weeks studying the Indonesian language and culture in its own environment.
The program enables students to converse, read and write about more complex topics and to discuss ideas and information. Students also build upon their knowledge of grammar, based on what they have learned previously.

By living and interacting with the community around them, students develop confidence and competence using the language in the setting where it is spoken.
