Are listening and reading the same? At some level, the answer to this question is no. There are several differences between listening and reading. For instance, students can skim a text quickly to get a good idea what it’s about, but listeners can’t skim. The language comes rushing at them. Listening must be done in real time; there is no second chance, unless, of course, the listener specifically asks for repetition. When students read, cognates (words that are similar in two languages) help under- standing, but while cognates may look alike on the page, their sounds may be quite different and they may be less useful while listening.
On the other hand, skimming a text quickly to get a good idea what it is about will not work if we do not provide enough knowledge to our students of not only correct but also appropriate grammar and sentence structure.
This workshop has two parts; the first is based on maintaining and upgrading reading comprehension skills and the second is on improving listening
skills. As this workshop is targeting middle school teachers of Indonesian, the workshop is applicable to understanding the new VCE Indonesian Study Design, in particular the comprehension skills. Year 8 and Year 9 are the critical periods for students studying Indonesian, and if they are not sufficiently challenged and engaged, and given a sense of achievement during the middle years, they can lack the incentive to continue
the study of Indonesian to the next levels (Year 10 and VCE), and are at increased risk of discontinuing their Indonesian studies.
