Lee and Jenny are long time friends of IALF and they returned to IALF earlier this week for ASILE. Joining 100 other teachers of bahasa Indonesia, they both participated in a series of sessions and activities which made up this two day, international conference. These sessions were designed to help all participants improve their understanding of both bahasa Indonesia, how to teach it to their students and how to use networking across the seas to make their classrooms more vibrant and productive.
During the conference both Jenny and Lee took time to talk about ASILE and their ongoing involvement with IALF.

Ni Ketut Sudiani, from Denpasar, is a recipient of the
Australia-Indonesia Emerging Writers Exchange 2014
Ni Ketut Sudiani from Denpasar will travel to Australia in early July to
attend the Emerging Writers’ Festival in Melbourne. Her co-recipient of
these awards, Luke Ryan, from Melbourne was recently a participant of the
Bali Emerging Writers Festival in Ubud.
These two young writers from Australia and Indonesia are part of an Emerging
Writers Exchange. The exchange is a part of the Australian Embassy
Jakarta’s Arts and Cultural Program 2014.
Australia’s Ambassador to Indonesia Greg Moriarty said the reciprocal
visits would give both writers valuable international exposure and
experience. “I am pleased the embassy can support the early careers of
these two writers in this way. This is a great opportunity to broaden their
professional networks and enjoy the exposure to a different literary
tradition and cultural environment,” the Ambassador said.
Ketut Sudiani recently visited IALF in Bali to talk about her English
language skills, her writing and her award with Kevin, PR Manager for IALF.
