Face to Face
Would you like to enrol for the coming term?
Welcome to Melbourne's longest-running classes in Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language) for adults!
As part of our mission to promote friendship between Indonesia and Australia, AIAV has been running weekly language classes for more than 50 years! Our teachers have a wealth of experience and are passionate about helping you to learn the language and explore the culture of Indonesia. So …
Ayo, ikutlah! (Come on, let’s get started!)
Weekly on Thursday evenings from 6.30 to 8.30 pm (with a 15-minute break) during school terms.
Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth St, Melbourne (opposite the Queen Victoria Market), rooms to be advised
Lower Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and Advanced classes are available each term.
Introductory and Intermediate classes use the textbook but this is also supplemented with other activities and materials including media articles, films, poetry and songs. **
** The Advanced class does not use a textbook as their studies are based more around topics.
We offer 3 Classes
We offer a range of levels of language learning to suit your situation.
Take this quick online quiz to get an idea of which level is most appropriate for you.
We will do our best to put you in the most appropriate class, but feel free to speak to your teacher if you think you should move up or down a level.
