The program is a unique part of language study and an excellent way of accelerating completion of the major. Second and third year students have the opportunity to spend between six and eight weeks studying language and culture in its own environment. This enables students to converse, read and write about more complex topics and to discuss ideas and information. Students also build upon their knowledge of grammar based on what they have learned previously. The program contributes two credit points (2cp) towards the Indonesian language major. Upon successful completion of this program students will be awarded a preclusion for either AIF341 or AIF342.
