Resources including scope and sequences, units and assessment tasks with marking guidelines to help you plan, program and assess Indonesian 7 to 10.

The Modern Languages K–10 Syllabus (2022) will replace the existing Indonesian K–10 Syllabus (2018) from 2024.

In 2023, teachers engage with the Modern Languages K–10 Syllabus (2022), and plan and prepare for implementation of the new curriculum.

In 2024, implementation commences in schools, with:

  • K–6
  • 7–10 mandatory 100 hour courses
  • new 100 and 200 hour elective courses.

Classes which commence a 100 hour or 200 hour elective course in 2023 should continue to use the existing language-specific syllabus until the end of 2024.

Suppport for Indonesian K–10 Syllabus (2018)

The Indonesian K-10 Syllabus (2018) was developed using the Languages K-10 Framework. As all K-10 language syllabuses (2017 and later) are underpinned by this framework, teachers should view resources across all languages to access a broader range of sample scope and sequences, unit starters and assessment tasks.

For advice on how to develop your own programming documents, visit our Planning, programming and assessing languages 7 to 10.

Modify the documents to suit your context, including the needs of your students.

Mantap Indonesian course

The department has created a Stage 4 (100 hours) Indonesian course available free of charge to NSW public schools. It is also available to independent schools, for a $210 administration fee.

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