Indonesian: F–10 Sequence / Levels 5 and 6 / Communicating / Reflecting
Content description
Engage in intercultural experiences, describing aspects that are unfamiliar or uncomfortable and discussing own reactions and adjustments
  1. comparing the impact of gestures across cultures (for example, beckoning by pointing with index finger or with palm down, touching top of head, or laughing loudly) and noticing own comfort with these
  2. describing ways of showing politeness, for example, giving an answer that may be incorrect as a way of saving face, or using body language such as smiling often
  3. recognising and exploring aspects of own language use that reflect own cultural perspective and experiences, for example, references to climate and environment, animals, activities and routines such as chores; celebrations and events such as school camp, Easter and Anzac Day; and expressions such as ‘g’day’, ‘howzat’ and ‘morning tea’
  4. noticing the impact of own assumptions about Indonesian people and culture when engaging with texts (such as being surprised if dogs are kept as pets, or assuming that all Indonesians live a subsistence lifestyle), and considering what assumptions Indonesians might hold about Australian people and culture
