What we do in Indonesian

Listen to short texts about familiar topics that build on familiar language patterns. They identify key words and phrases. They understand some aspects of the target language culture relating to everyday behaviours and use these in their responses. The responses may be in short phrases or sentences in the target language or a mixture of the target language and English, or actions.

View and read simple texts on familiar topics that may contain more language than they can be expected to understand. They read and view for specific information and respond appropriately in shared reading and viewing activities. They use strategies, such as applying their knowledge of the target language culture to the task and accessing other sources of support, to aid their understanding.

Write a number of short sentences. They imitate the basic target language print conventions and use familiar language: for example, they substitute a word or words following a pattern provided by the teacher. With practice and additional support such as charts, labels, Websites or books and scaffolding exercises, they are able to complete simple speech bubbles, posters, picture stories, charts and more extended pieces of writing. They use them to express their understanding of some aspects of the target language culture, such as everyday behaviours.
