Known for its vibrant culture, diverse natural landscapes and exotic wildlife, Indonesia is the perfect destination for students of language, art and humanities. Students will immerse themselves in Balinese culture; enjoying cooking classes, dance performances and outdoor adventures as they build on their language skills.
By immersing your students in the natural environment of the local culture, they will learn through real-world experiences, build an authentic intercultural understanding and fast-track their language skills.
WorldStrides offers languages tours to two of Indonesia’s most populous islands, Java and Bali. On a WorldStrides Indonesian language tour, students will accelerate their language acquisition through the following experiences:
Local school visits
Practice your Indonesian with a visit to a local school where you will meet and interact with the local school children. This is an incredible opportunity for students to discover the cultural differences and similarities between themselves and the local students.
Intensive language lessons
Our language lessons are led by qualified, experienced and native instructors and designed to be fun and highly social. Your students can take as many language lessons as you choose, which are typically in three hour blocks. In Bali, we’ve partnered with the Indonesia Australia Language Federation, originally established by the Australian government and recognised as one of the leading language training organisations in Indonesia.
Cultural activities – Bali
From authentic cooking classes to exploring the Palace of an Ubud King, our language tours in Bali are integrated with unique and exciting cultural activities. In uncovering the secrets of authentic Balinese cooking, students will visit the local markets and learn how to select the right vegetables, herbs and spices. Learn how Balinese artwork has helped to support the local economy throughout history and visit religious monuments, museums and historical sites to uncover Bali’s rich history.
Cultural activities – Java
In Java, students will visit magnificent temples constructed during the middle ages and learn about the Kings and religions they are dedicated to. At the Borobudur temple, students will be completely immersed in the local culture as they explore the village by the horse-drawn Andong and learn how to play the traditional instrument of the Gamelan.
