Selamat Datang di halaman Bahasa Indonesia. 

Welcome to the Indonesian page. 

At Tambrey Primary students from years 1-6 study Indonesian for one hour per week. 

Our specialist Indonesian program gives students an introduction to the language and culture of Indonesia, through the main forms of speaking + listening, reading, writing and responding. 

Indonesian – or Bahasa Indonesia as it is known by Indonesian speakers – is spoken by approximately 230 million people throughout the Indonesian archipelago, and is the ninth most spoken language in the world. 

Students learning a second language in primary school benefit from a deeper understanding of their first language plus an increase in memory and learning ability in other areas. Learning to communicate in another language challenges children to discover more about how other people live, and opens their mind up to different cultures and ways of life.
