Learning Bahasa Indonesia

Learning Bahasa Indonesia in our program consists of three activities, namely (1) the students are going to get theory and learn in the class, (2) get some directly practices with local people while attending some ceremonial activities (art and culture knowledge), and (3)take a case study to be a final project. The three parts of those are:

  1. Theory in the class (Listening, Responding to Rule, Reading, Writing, Speaking)
  2. Practice: 'sit in' in the local student class, looking for data as presentation material by attending ceremonial activities at banjar or with local people, e.g: Purnama praying (do it when it full moon), melukat, odalan, ngaben (cremation) , wedding events, mepandes, make penjor ahead of Galungan, make  canang, make lawar, kite festival, etc.)
  3. Project (The case study of social problems in Bali raised the theme of what each foreign student wants to know, presented and listened to STIBA Saraswati Denpasar students and lecturers at the end of the level/semester)
