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. Indonesian students will live together in a dorm near campus. Students then travel to Denpasar, Bali, for an assisted full immersion experience, living in host families and learning to navigate daily life through one-on-one 'real-life' exercises with local language coaches.

- 8 weeks of training at Arizona State (May 24 to July 16) - 10 credits
- 4 weeks of study abroad in Indonesia (July 19 - August 13) - 3 credits
Surrounded by supportive Indonesian speakers, receiving daily hands-on training, and not speaking English for 4 weeks, students make extremely rapid progress and are expected to exit the program with a proficiency of Intermediate Low or better.
Students spend 3 hours/day in class while overseas, reviewing material covered in Arizona, supplementing it with new structures, and activating their knowledge by using it in daily on-the-street activities with the language coaches. Students also participate in weekend trips, in Indonesian, also with their coaches.
