Learning a language is a window into the soul of another culture. It helps us reflect on our own choices and practices as a community and understand what we value most and why. Learning a language other than English (LOTE) enables students to compare differences between the people on this earth with respect, acceptance, and curiosity. Students can then take this attitude to differences into their lives and be a global citizen no matter where they are or who they meet. During Indonesian classes, students will engage with Indonesian Culture and Language through singing, dancing, games, and discussion. There is an Indonesian saying that goes 'Padi Makin berisi makin merunduk.' In English this means, 'The more substance the rice grain has, the more it bends.' I translate this to mean the more experience and knowledge a person has the more they can stand tall in life and bend with life's challenges but not break. This is what I feel students at Lara Primary receive by learning Indonesian Language and Culture.
