Hobart

Note:

Prospective students based in Launceston, Burnie or other parts of Tasmania and Australia, will need to enrol as Hobart off-campus.

Background speakers of Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Indonesia will need to enrol in Advanced Indonesian (HMN313 or HMN314). In some cases, unit coordinator may approve these background speakers to enrol in Intermediate Indonesian (HMN207 or HMN208).

Introduction

This is an introductory unit for students with no prior knowledge of Indonesian. This unit will provide students with the skills to communicate and interact with Indonesian people on a range of topics,  to  find their way around in Indonesia, and to understand basic information written in Indonesian. It provides the foundation for an understanding of Indonesian culture and society norms, through situating the use of the Indonesian language in relevant social and cultural contexts. Learning the Indonesian language, even as a beginner, cannot be separated from learning the cultural significance in Indonesia of taboos, gestures, the concept of time, and etiquette, all of which are markedly different from Australian cultural norms.
