Developing Indonesian speaking and writing skills in the Middle School
Bridging the gap between Middle and Senior School
When developing our Indonesian language program, retention rates are in the minds of many teachers of Indonesian. In many cases, the numbers of students learning Bahasa Indonesia are not as expected when the students finish Year 8 or 9. Many of us think, and that is also planted in the students’ minds, that the knowledge gaps between Middle School and Senior School levels (VCE) have become too wide. We often forget that students also want and need challenges to empower and enrich their language knowledge and skills.
This workshop will present some ideas about how to motivate our Middle School students not only to do more but also to enhance their Indonesian speaking and writing skills.
