Summer Advanced Indonesian Abroad Program with COTI

Besides the above intensive program, LTC also cooperate with Consortium for the Teaching of Indonesian hosted by Cornell University. [youtube]

This immersion program focuses on advanced-level Indonesian language acquisition. The program consists of a structured academic program of four hours of language instruction four mornings per week and two-three hours of arts and cultural activities one afternoon per week plus a weekly field trip.  One weekend will feature a cultural or scenic excursion in Central Java outside Salatiga.

Instruction is given in small-individualized groups taught by in-country language teachers who have extensive experience teaching Indonesian as a foreign language. Topics for instruction are theme-based and include education, language and culture, history, literature, arts and performance, economics, political and social issues, environment and globalization. One topic is discussed each week.

Indonesian Art Classes

As part of your language learning experience, we are offering Indonesian Arts class that will give you hands-on experience with various Indonesian arts. We have a selection of three options: Pencak Silat (=Traditional Indonesian Martial Art), Memasak (= Traditional Indonesian Cooking) and Karawitan (=Traditional Indonesian Music Instrument) that you can choose to take for 12 hours in 6 sessions for COTI Program and 6 hours in 3 sessions for PIBBI Program. You will have to stay in one class for the entire sessions and may not move from one class to another. All classes are held at the same time and therefore you should really decide what you want to do. At the end of the program there will be a session where you will perform or show what you have learned in your Indonesian Arts class. Your active participation in each session will result in a good performance. Based on the preliminary forms we received we will only be opening the following Indonesian Arts Classes. There will be a demo of the courses opened for you to see before the arts classes begin and you might want to change your decision and move to another arts class.

Kelas Karawitan:

gamelan is a traditional musical ensemble from Indonesia, typically from the islands of Java and Bali, featuring a variety of instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, kendang (drums) and gongs; bamboo flutes, bowed and plucked strings. Vocalists may also be included. For most Indonesians, gamelan music is an integral part of Indonesian culture. The term refers more to the set of instruments than to the players of those instruments. A gamelan is a set of instruments as a distinct entity, built and tuned to stay together – instruments from different gamelan are generally not interchangeable.

Course Objective: At the end of the course, the participants will be able to play instruments of Indonesian song.

Kelas Pencak Silat:


It is the official name used to indicate more than 800 martial arts schools and styles spread across more than 13,000 islands in Indonesia. However, this is actually a compound name consisting of two terms used in different regions. The word "pencak" and its dialectic derivatives such as "penca" West Java and "mancak" (Madura and Bali) is commonly used in Java, Madura and Bali, whereas the term "silat" or "silek" is used in Sumatra. The ambition to unify all these different cultural expressions in a common terminology as part of declaring Indonesia's unity and independence from colonial power, was first expressed in 1948 with the establishment of the Ikatan Pencak Silat Indonesia (Indonesian Pencak Silat Association, IPSI). However, it could only be realized in 1973 when representatives from different schools and styles finally formally agreed to the use of "pencak silat" in official discourse, albeit original terms are still widely used at the local level.

 Course Objective: At the end of the course, the participants will be able to perform several basic movements in Pencak Silat. Participants from this class will perform Pencak Silat at the Culture Day.PIBBI rating based on previous PIBBI participants’ experience: ***** (electrifying)

Kelas Memasak:

Indonesian cuisine reflects the vast variety of people that live on the 6,000 populated islands that make up Indonesia. Indonesian cuisine is as diverse as Indonesian culture, and has taken on culinary influences from many sources. Throughout its history, Indonesia has been involved in trade due to its location and natural resources. Indonesia’s indigenous techniques and ingredients, at least in the Malay World parts, are influenced by India, the Middle East, China and finally Europe. Spanish and Portuguese traders brought New World produce even before the Dutch came to colonize most of Indonesia. The Indonesian islands of Maluku are famed as "the Spice Islands" for their introduction of native spices to Indonesian and global cuisine. The most popular dishes that originated in Indonesia are common across most of Asia. Popular Indonesian dishes such as satay, beef rendang, and sambals are also favored in Malaysia and Singapore. Soy-based dishes, such as variations of tofu (tahu) and tempe, are also very popular. In fact, tempe is an adaptation of tofu to the tropical climates of Indonesia. Indonesian meals are commonly eaten with the combination of spoon in the right hand and fork in the left hand, although in many parts of the country (such as West Java) it is also common to eat with one's hands.

 Course Objective: At the end of the course, the participants will be able to cook a variety of Indonesian dishes from various parts of the country. A sample of the dishes will be presented at the Culture Night. rating based on previous participants’ experience: **** (An adventure)
