In 2018, NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) released a new K-10 syllabus for Indonesian. This is for implementation in 2019 (with Years 7 and 9) and 2020 (with Years 8 and 10).

The sample units of work and sample assessment tasks on this page support the 2003 Indonesian K-10 syllabus.

The Languages and Culture team is currently developing resources to support all new K-10 language syllabuses – these will be published in 2019.

NESA has released sample materials to support the implementation of the Indonesian K-10 syllabus 2018.

Sample scope and sequence (NESA)


The NSW Department of Education has created a Stage 4 (100 hours) Indonesian course.

The course is available free of charge to NSW public schools. The course is also available to independent schools, for a $210 administration fee.

This is a Moodle-based course which will require schools to have their own Moodle server (version 2.8.9) and have the specific plugins on order to access the interactive activities and listening files.

To learn more about the course, or to arrange a copy, please contact the NSW School of Languages at
