Indonesian

Indonesian (and its close relation Malay) is spoken by some 200 million people in Southeast Asia and is the most widely taught language in Tasmanian schools.
Successful completion of a major in Indonesian provides a student with the ability to speak, read and write standard and colloquial styles of the language. Additionally, students become familiar with 20th century Indonesian literature (its history and development, important writers and major works).
Contemporary use of the language within the context of Indonesian culture is emphasised with some of the materials drawn from newspapers and magazines.

Units at 200/300 level offered at Padang allow a student to complete the requirements for the second and third year of a major in Indonesian in a summer semester. A further 40% of units at 300 level is offered to provide continuity of study for such students.
Students with prior knowledge of the language, students from Indonesia, Malaysia or Singapore, or native speakers of Indonesian should consult the department before enrolling in Indonesian.

Dictionaries: In first year, a dictionary is not strictly necessary. Students will find the glossary in the textbook of Wolff et al plus lecture notes sufficient. McGarry Concise Indonesian Dictionary, may be useful for first year. Echols JM and Shadily H, An Indonesian-English Dictionary and An English-Indonesian Dictionary, Gramedia Jakarta, 1990 are regarded as the best dictionaries in this field.
For socio-cultural knowledge: supplementary materials designed or selected by Indonesian staff are distributed. Many other resources are available from the lecturer and the library to assist in assignment and seminar presentation/preparation.
