Description

Nah, Baca! Volume Two Student Workbook offers thirty-two lessons, based on readings selected from the contemporary press, for the teaching of Indonesian as a second language. The accompanying graded set of readings in the Reading Packet begin at the intermediate-mid level and proceed to texts at the advanced level. The intermediate-mid texts are instructional, having a non-complex underlying structure and support from pictures and formatting. These texts include announcements, articles from news and popular magazines, and government pamphlets. The advanced level texts include short stories and essays, offering longer stretches of discourse with description and narration where there is some assumed knowledge of Indonesian culture and history. Volume Two, which is designed for a second year language course at the university level, is intended as a supplement to a basic Indonesian language text. Nah, Baca! teaches only the reading skill, while other skills (i.e., speaking, listening, and writing) are integrated into the post-reading exercises but not directly taught. A Teacher's Edition is also available.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

Contact Us

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
