This course is a continuation of ASIANLAN 419. This course is to advance students’ communicative skills, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing, through discussion of reading materials from the textbooks and other authentic materials like newspapers, magazines, and audio visual materials. The reading materials will be focused on socio-cultural, political, technological, environmental, medical, and other common issues and problems in Indonesia or other parts of the world. With emphasis on the analysis of the selected texts (fiction and non-fiction), students are required to answer questions related to the texts or write a summary or response on the required readings for each session.

By the end of semester, students will be able to: read passages from authentic materials like newspapers and magazines; listen and understand extended recordings, of news or movies in the Indonesian language; write responses to the reading and listening materials using advanced grammar and vocabulary; express and support their opinions; compare and contrast the issues discussed in class; make arguments to support their opinions as well as evaluating the materials and topics in depth.
