Content
This unit follows on from INDO1406 Indonesian 6 and leads to INDO2408 Indonesian 8. It brings students to a sophisticated level of proficiency in both formal and informal Indonesian. It extends students' speaking, reading and writing skills through exposure to contemporary literature, films, academic Indonesian texts and journalism. Students are introduced to the world of Indonesian literature and independent film making. They read short stories in Indonesian and study a popular Indonesian movie in detail. Students are also expected to achieve a high level of skill in writing through completing an extended academic essay in Indonesian on a contemporary social, cultural or political issue in Indonesia. By doing so, students gain not only a high level of proficiency in reading and writing, but also a detailed knowledge of contemporary problems in Indonesia. Areas covered in the unit include literary, journalistic, academic and colloquial Indonesian including Jakartan slang or 'bahasa gaul'.
