The Centre for Teaching Asian Languages and Cultures is very pleased to launch the first Issue of our Indonesian English bilingual student newspaper - Dua Suku, Satu Kata.
Congratulations to the Year 11 Indonesian class at The Knox School and their teacher Bronwyn Cook for winning the Bilingual Student Newspaper naming competition. Their entry Dua Suku, Satu Kata (Two Peoples, One Voice) has been selected by a panel of Deakin University lecturers as the name for our English Indonesian student newspaper.
Dua Suku, Sata Kata has two meanings. The first is Two Peoples, One Voice which is the sentiment behind our bilingual newspaper. In future editions you will read pieces written by secondary school students from Victoria and from Indonesia - two people's in one newspaper. The second meaning is Two Syllables, One Word - very appropriate for a newspaper! One of the characteristics of the Indonesian language is that a great majority of its vocabulary has two syllable roots. Moreover, a syllable in a two syllable word is meaningless without the other. It's a great symbol of togetherness!
