Scientific studies have shown that learning a second language improves brain function and stimulates creativity.

As a consequence, the importance of learning a second language is again reinforced. You become not just equipped to communicate across cultures but empowered to understand others’ points of view.

Students should have ‘an entitlement to continuation’ allowing them to continue studies throughout their schooling and beyond.

  • Are we given enough time allocation to support our students to expand their knowledge and go to next levels?
  • How to instil knowledge, to deepen understanding, to stimulate reflection and to foster students’ skills in our Indonesian junior classes?
  • What should we do to cope with a very limited teaching time allocation?
  • How to put a balance between fun and serious activities in class?

Those are some of the frequently asked questions that are going to be answered in this workshop specially designed to support teachers of Indonesian at junior levels.
