Indonesian major

The Indonesian major enables you to achieve a high level of fluency in the language of Australia's closest neighbour and the world's fourth largest country. Indonesian is a relatively easy language to learn as it uses the Roman script and is simple to spell and pronounce. As a result, Indonesian is a popular choice for beginners. People have written and spoken Indonesian since ancient times, leaving a rich legacy of literature and poetry. As well as learning how to speak, read and write Indonesian, you will be enriched through exposure to this fascinating and dynamic culture. You will have the exciting opportunity to spend a semester studying at an Indonesian university—a life-changing experience not to be missed.
