WILTA Workshop Term 1 – 2015.

WILTA is proud to bring you its first event for the year in Week 8 of Term 1. You will participate in two useful, hands-on sessions designed to enhance student interest and engagement in your classes.

For Workshop 1, please bring along your smartphone, iPad and/or laptop. If your classroom is low-tech, bring some ideas for a concurrent session!

For Workshop 2, you will need a laptop to download materials from our gift to you this year – a 16Gb WILTA USB stick.

Pak Andre – RTV 2014.

WILTA is once again seeking expressions of interest from members who wish to have an IALF teacher as a short term language assistant in their classroom for a week at the start of Term 2 2015. Preference will be given to applicants who are also able to host Bapak/Ibu guru in their home during their time in Western Australia.

The focus of the visit will be to work in Indonesian language classes across all phases of learning, as a classroom assistant. The RTV teacher will also be working with WILTA members in providing a professional development session at our May Weekend Workshop. The experience of having an RTV teacher in their classrooms has been unanimously praised and endorsed by both teachers and students alike each year since the program began. It is a rare opportunity for our students to have contact with a native speaker of Indonesian and their culture.

WILTA members are not only Indonesian educators working in the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors but also students and community members who are also passionate about learning and teaching Indonesian.


Lasting Connections

Many WILTA members have formed lasting connections with Indonesia. Some were fortunate enough to study in Indonesia during their university years, such as Lisa, Indonesian teacher at Mandurah Senior College. Lisa is pictured here with her Ibu Kos who she had the pleasure of catching up with during the WILTA Sumatra tour, 10 years after completing her studies at Universitas Negeri Padang.
