Introduction to Indonesian 1B HMN102


This introductory unit builds on HMN101. It is suitable for students who have some prior Indonesian language learning. The main aim is to provide you with the vocabulary, sentence shells and cultural skills that will enable you to ask and answer questions about the things you usually do each day as well as skills that will enable you to plan a future visit to Indonesia and express a variety of opinions about it. You will learn skills to construct extended narratives and will be able to speak more fluently on your activities and travel.
