ASIANLAN 121 is an introduction to the speaking, reading, and writing of modern Indonesian. Students with previous experience with Indonesian or Malay should contact the department for placement into the course.

Indonesian is the national language of Indonesia, a country noted for its rich and deep cultural heritage as well as for its remarkable cultural diversity. With more than 200 million speakers, Indonesian is the sixth most prevalently spoken language in the world. The relatively simple syntactic and grammatical structures that characterize Indonesian make it an accessible language for any native speakers of other languages. The elementary course comprises a two-term sequence designed to provide the student with a basic working knowledge of the Indonesian language. The course aims at the acquisition of the four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing in modern Indonesian. The course emphasizes aural-oral exercises and practice and the learning of culture throughout the course. The text used is keyed to a set of tapes for use in the language lab and concentrates on practical knowledge of the language.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation is based on classroom performance, homework assignments, tests, and a final project.
