The Indonesian: Second Language subject enables all students to communicate proficiently by providing students with essential communication skills in Indonesian, an intercultural capability, and an understanding of the role of language and culture in communication.

The design of the Western Australian Curriculum: Languages takes into account different entry points into language learning across Pre-primary to Year 10 to reflect current practice in Languages. For Indonesian: Second Language, there are two learning sequences to accommodate these practices: a Pre-primary – Year 10 sequence and a Year 7 – Year 10 sequence.

Pre-primary to Year 10
