This workshop will be presented in English and Bahasa Indonesia so that you can gain a thorough understanding of the levels you are teaching and your own Bahasa Indonesia competency.

The workshop is divided into three parts; speaking, writing and listening, and each is presented by an experienced Indonesian teacher from the Balai Bahasa & Budaya Indonesia Victoria – Tasmania (BBBIVT) or the Indonesian Centre of Victoria.
