Learn communication skills in Bahasa Indonesia while gaining an understanding of Indonesia's culture, history and society. With more than 220 million speakers of Bahasa Indonesia, and with Indonesia being Australia's closest Asian neighbour, the region is increasingly important to Australia economically, politically and culturally.

We studied in Indonesia for six weeks, developing our language skills to the point where we delivered weekly class presentations in Indonesian.
