IALF Training English Teachers in
Padangsidimpuan, Sumatra

IELTS

Recently two members of the IALF Bali Teacher Training team, David Bradbury and Komang Wartini, spent four weeks in the middle of Sumatra. They were there to run a four-week Certificate in Communicative English Language Teaching (C-CELT), which is one of a range of courses offered for Indonesian teachers and lecturers who want to develop professionally by improving their teaching skills. The State Institute for Islamic Studies (IAIN) Padangsidimpuan has a long term plan for all its lecturers and students to be fluent in English, and IALF Bali were asked to provide training for prospective lecturers. The two sides agreed that the most effective option was for the C-CELT to be run at Padangsidimpuan, North Sumatra.

In fact, because there were 50 (yes, fifty!) participants, there were two C-CELT two courses at the same time – two groups of 25. There were 44 women and six men, so remembering the names was a challenge.

All the participants were enthusiastic and were very keen to improve their teaching skills. They had an opportunity to try new techniques in teaching practice with their peers, and the tutors were happy to see much more student-student interaction and clearer instructions. Overall, their punctuality and attendance was excellent, and they worked very hard from day one until the last day, when they all sat Modules 1, 2 and 3 of the Cambridge ESOL Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) – an international standard teaching qualification.

We are still waiting for the TKT certificates to arrive from England, but in the meantime IALF Bali and IAIN Padangsidimpuan are in discussions about the next stage of working together, with plans for a teacher detachment. We look forward to helping the lecturers with their ongoing professional development.

Thanks Kang Guru Indonesia and IALF

IELTS

Thanks Kang Guru Indonesia and IALF

A surprise visitor popped into IALF today. Her name is Rani and she is originally from Surabaya. Rani started listening to Kang Guru Indonesia on RRI Surabaya way back in 1997. Rani enjoyed KGI for many, many years and says that the KGI magazines and radio broadcasts really helped her with her English. Then in 2007 she read about the Australia Awards scholarships in the KGI magazine and decided to apply. She has since completed her studies in Australia with Australian Awards (2010) and is now a full time lecturer at Udayana University in Bali. Listen for her interview on KGI radio soon and check the KGI Facebook Fans Page for more information about this long time friend of KGI and IALF.

Here is that article Rani saw in the June 2007 KGI magazine. This information from KGI certainly helped Rani to make her decision to apply for her scholarship to Australia.

Australia Awards awardees prepare for Australia

IELTS

Australia Awards awardees, all current students of IALF, gathered in both Jakarta and Denpasar during March 2015 for their Pre-Departure Briefings. They are due to leave for Australia in June to take up their studies under the Australia Awards scholarship scheme. These meetings in Jakarta and denpasar were conducted by the staff of the Australia Awards office in Jakarta, together with representatives from the Government of Indonesia and the Government of Australia.

On a less formal note, the awardees also gathered for their own social events in both locations. In Denpasar it was a beachside BBQ in Sanur and for Jakarta an event was held at a restaurant in Jl. Rasuna Said quite close to the IALF office. As you can see, all 4 events proved highly successful.

Strong IALF links in Australia

IELTS

IALF has enjoyed strong links with schools within the Diocese of Lismore, in north-eastern New South Wales, for 5 years. Teachers and students welcome young IALF instructors each year to assist with the teaching of Indonesian language and culture at their schools.  Assistance is delivered in the classroom situation, through teacher workshops, and by working directly with the students. IALF teachers have worked in Lismore since 2011 - Agus in 2011: Made and Anik in 2012, Cahyani and Pam last year, and for 2014 it will be Pam and Asri.  

In addition teachers from the Diocese of Lismore join the 2-week intensive Indonesian language course every January at IALF Bali to further enhance their Bahasa Indonesia.

New Options for IELTS Preparation at IALF Jakarta

IELTS

This year IALF Jakarta merged the IELTS Prep 1 and 2 classes into one combined IELTS Prep program. This has been designed to develop stronger foundations for students by providing challenging test-taking strategies and engaging assignments.

IALF Jakarta’s 2-week intensive courses and 5-week semi-intensive course are now run over four days, from Tuesday to Friday each week. This allows for slightly longer class sessions which are better suited to IELTS practice exercises and also provides for a three-day break giving students time to consolidate what they have learned during the previous week.

In response to overwhelming demand, IALF Jakarta is now running IELTS Prep on Saturdays. The new 8-week course runs from 08.45 - 16.00, (with an hour's break for lunch), every Saturday for five weeks. The class is intensive and focused and gives students an opportunity to concentrate on their language studies without the stress of coping with the demands of work or school on that day, and of course allows them to avoid Jakarta's horrendous weekday traffic.

So far this year more than 1,100 students have registered for IELTS Preparation courses at IALF Jakarta. This number is expected to increase over the coming months as awareness grows about the new programs and as people find out how easy it now is to book a place for an IELTS test at any one of the IALF centres using the online registration and payment service.

‘My name is Muhamad Mustafa. I’m from Tangerang. I have to take the IELTS Test because I need to study in Australia. I did IELTS Test before in somewhere else last year and I did it again 3 months ago and then I can compare that having test in IALF Jakarta is good in term of facilities, in term of quietness, the place, the staff.... Everything is just make me feel comfortable which is very important for my IELTS.

I also enjoy IELTS Test in IALF Jakarta because the access also is very easy. I need to do all of these like in one day. So, here in IALF Jakarta I can get it because in other places I find they do the Speaking Test in different days than the other aspect of the test. So, I think ‘One Day Test’ is easy. Test itself is done in very quiet situation. Less noise here in IALF Jakarta. The IELTS preparation course is really help me in taking this test’.
