OverviewDari Kami Ke Kita is a new national Indonesian series of sequenced and cumulative resources designed to form the basis of a Years 7-10 teaching program. Currently, middle years Indonesian classrooms are not well served with stimulating material and resources, which recognise the cognitive stage of development of their learners. This series aims to provide students who have beginning levels of proficiency with an engaging and challenging way into language learning. Each student book covers approximately two years of Indonesian studies from Years 7-10, addressing the most current national LOTE focus on communication and intercultural language learning. The authors are expert in this field and have tested their techniques in classrooms and they have also been actively researching, writing, reporting and presenting about intercultural language learning. WHY THE TITLE? Dari Kami Ke Kita: from us (exclusive) to us (inclusive). This is a figurative title, which relies on the intercultural focus of this series. It implies a 'movement' (spatial, linguistic and cultural) towards Indonesia and Indonesian language. The authors use ke figuratively by intentionally playing with the language construction, overlaying the sense of journey/travel (in a locational sense) onto the personal ideas of us and us (personal pronouns). It captures the abstract concept of 'space', but with a shift in language to the personal/cognitive realm, as in terms like 'personal space', 'creating a space', the 'third space', 'thinking space', MySpace, etc. Website www.nelsonkita.com.au The website has a free area accessible to everybody, with sample pages and news, and protected areas for the students' activities for book 1 and book 2. To access these protected areas you need to purchase the workbook with an SSO card with a unique PIN that has a duration (ask the sale representatives or customer service for more details).
