In 2018, NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) released the Indonesian K-10 Syllabus.

The support on this page includes sample:

  • scope and sequences
  • unit starters (units of work)
  • assessment tasks, with marking guidelines.

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

For advice on how to develop your own programming documents, visit our programming and assessment page.

Support materials from NSW Department of Education

The Indonesian K-10 syllabus 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.

Stage 4 – Indonesian

Stage 4 – generic (can be adapted to any language)

Stage 5 – Indonesian

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
