IALF Bali hosted the ASILE 2014 Conference on 29 and 30 September 2014. There were 107 delegates at the conference - 67 from Australia and other countries, including Japan, Germany, and the USA, and 40 from Indonesia. There were six plenary and twenty-nine parallel sessions, discussing trending topics in Indonesian language teaching, such as the use of technology, the development of Indonesian language teaching in Australia, Indonesia and other countries, and some strategies and techniques in teaching Indonesian language and culture. All delegates found the conference valuable. They shared their experience and knowledge, learnt new information and techniques and developed connections with their fellow teachers.
IALF would like to thank ASILE, Balai Bahasa Indonesia Canberra, Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth, Balai Bahasa Denpasar, Green School, APBIPA and BahasaKita who all contributed to the successful running of the conference. Many thanks also to all IALF Bali staff who worked so hard to make the conference such a great event.
