This unit provides opportunities for language learning through immersion in a content based unit dealing with practical aspects of journalism in the Indonesian context. Two workshops are conducted each week which integrate language skills with four main themes: history and background of the media in Indonesia, translation and the media, the print media; and radio broadcasting.


Upon successful completion of this unit students will be able to: follow and create text across a broad range of registers commonly dealt with by the Indonesian news journalist; demonstrate an understanding of the underlying issues related to the practice and occupation of journalism in Indonesia; exploit a range of questioning skills in an interview situation; recognise and apply specific journalistic styles both in the print and broadcast media; question the underlying motives and quality of journalistic text.
