Content description
Notice what may look or feel similar or different to own language and culture when interacting in Indonesian
Elaborations
  1. recognising ways in which Indonesian differs from English, for example, greetings depend on the strength/position of the sun; siblings are identified in relation to position in the family (for example, Kak (older sibling)); and ways of showing politeness may differ, for example, using first name for a teacher (Ibu Lynda)
  2. noticing similarities and differences in language that relates to culture, such as the names of foods and animals particular to the climate and geography; and in cultural practices, such as extended families living together and attitudes towards pets, for example, that Muslims generally don’t keep dogs as pets
  3. noticing and recalling information by responding to teacher prompts in Indonesian or English (for example, Kamu melihat apa? or ‘What do you notice about…?’) when viewing television programs, video clips of children’s stories, or pictures of families, homes and schools
  4. developing language to discuss aspects of language and culture, for example, terms such as ‘country’, ‘groups of people’, sama/beda, or asking in English: ‘Why is…like that?’
  5. describing how it feels to use Indonesian, for example, when singing a song or hearing Indonesian spoken by others
