Indonesian On-Line

Cicak

Indonesian CD

This exciting project has resulted in the development of 14 interactive resources and associated on-line teachers' resources to support the learning and teaching of Indonesian in Years 5-8 in Australian schools. The learning objects are highly engaging and reflect current directions, research and emerging approaches to effective languages education, particularly intercultural language learning.

The Indonesian online resources will be hosted on the Tasmanian Department of Education website for a period of twelve months (July 2006-July 2007). Each State / Territory education authority received a copy of the resources on CD-ROM in July 2006.
