This course is only available for students in the BA International Studies programme who have passed Indonesian 1 Beginners and Indonesian 2 Pre-Intermediate.
The course Indonesian 3 Intermediate is the third / the last course in a series of Indonesian language acquisition courses within the International Studies Program. It will aid further development of Indonesian language skills acquired in Indonesian 2 Pre-Intermediate to intermediate level. The course systematically expands vocabulary, grammar and language structures, leading to a deeper comprehension of style and usage in Indonesian. The course emphasizes on advanced structures, reading and understanding of variety of oral and written texts, and the development of oral and aural competency in Indonesian.
The course enables the students to achieve a good level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). The students have the ability to express themselves in a limited way in familiar situations and to deal in a general way with nonroutine information.

Mode of instruction
Two two-hour tutorials every week, with the exception of the midterm exam week. Attending all tutorial sessions is compulsory. If you are unable to attend a session, please inform your tutor in advance, providing a valid reason for your absence. Being absent will result in a lowering of the participation grade with 0.5 for every absence after the first four (4) times.
- Written (grammar), reading, listening and speaking (oral) exams.
To successfully complete the course, please take note that the End Grade of the course is established by determining the weighted average of the in-class oral and listening performance, and written exams.
The End Grade needs to be a 6.0 or higher to pass the course.
If the End Grade is insufficient (lower than a 6.0), there is a possibility of retaking the full 80% of the exam material (exams, quizzes, Midterm Exam and Final Exam). No resit for the tutorial (participation and homework) is possible.
The BA International Studies program does not allow students to resit passed (constituent) examination(s) within the language courses. Language acquisition is, primarily, accomplished through in-class acquisition activities and practical assignments which contribute to the (final) examination. The diverse structure of the language courses and characteristics of language acquisition therefore withhold the possibility to resit a passed examination.
Exam review and feedback
