Program Details

This intensive course combines a comprehensive introduction to Bahasa Indonesia with an in-country immersion program. Students begin with an intensive introduction to the Indonesian language in Arizona and acquire basic communication skills in classes that run 4 hours a day, with tutoring and cultural activities in the afternoon. For the first 8 weeks of the program, Indonesian students will live together in a dorm near campus. Students then travel to Denpasar, Bali, for an assisted full immersion experience, learning to navigate daily life through one-on-one 'real-life' exercises with local language coaches.

Please Note: For summer 2022, ASU's overseas partner in Indonesia, Ngurah Rai University, requires all program participants to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
