Primary Indonesian Workbook 1

Author: Kathryn Methven & Louise Robertson, Publisher: Five Senses

Selamat dating to the Primary Indonesian Workbooks!

Primary Indonesian is a series of workbooks for primary students learning Indonesian as a Language Other than English.

As with the learning of any language, children need to experience a range of activities relating to oral interaction, reading and responding and writing. Primary Indonesian emphasises the communicative approach to learning Indonesian. Children are encouraged to interact in social exchanges using simple words and everyday expressions.

Teachers who are just beginning the exciting challenge of introducing a Language Other than English to their students will find Primary Indonesian a lively and stimulating workbook. Activities have been carefully planned and written in order to give many opportunities to integrate into other Key Learning Areas such as English Handwriting, Talking and Listening, Mathematics, HSIE and Creative and Practical Arts.

Workbook 1 is an introduction to Indonesian in the spoken and written form and is centred around simple themes such as Greetings, Colours, Numbers, Animals and Time. Students are motivated by the original native animal characters that give the book a true Australian flavor.

This is continued in the second workbook, which exposes children to more advanced spoken and written Indonesian. It contains themes such as the Zoo, the Body, Weather and Time.
