Year 12 Indonesian Students in Conversation

In the lead up to their oral exams, Braemar College Year 12 Indonesian students recently gained some valuable insights into Indonesian culture and conversation.

IMG_2515They dined at Bali Bagus in the city where they sampled authentic Indonesian cuisine. Students enjoyed some good Es Campur and Es Cendol as well as other staples such as Beef Rendang, Sate Ayam, and Gado-Gado for the vegetarians.

IMG_2522AIYA stands for Australian Indonesian Youth Association, and involves young people from Indonesia who are either studying or working in Melbourne, and Australians who are either learning the language or have an interest in Indonesia.

They get together weekly for conversation practice, networking and sometimes to listen to guest speakers.

AIYA members welcomed students, engaged in Indonesian conversation with the Year 12’s and gave them some pointers for their upcoming oral exam.
