The three volume text, Asyik Berbahasa Indonesia: A Grammar Practice Text, offers a communicative approach to the learning of the basic grammatical structures of Indonesian. Students become engaged in task-based activities set in life-like situations as they read, write and speak Indonesian. A set of online recordings of the opening segments reinforces the grammatical form as the student listens to the dialogue or text in a natural discourse setting. In addition, cultural notes at the end of the lessons allow the student to explore the relationship between language use and socio-cultural values and customs.
