INCULS

The Indonesian Language and Culture Learning Service (INCULS) at Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Universitas Gadjah Mada, was established in 2000 as a substitute of what was formerly known as Pusat Studi Indonesia (PSI) from 1987, then Learning Bahasa Indonesia as A Foreign Language (LBIFL) from 1992 and Non Afigned Government (NAG) in 1993. Its aim is to provide courses and workshops for foreigners who are interested in Indonesian, Indonesian Culture and local languages.

The language teachers and tutors are trained in both the Natural Approach and the Communicative Teaching Method, in which direct pertinence to real life situation and constant interaction are emphasized. The culture teachers are all qualified faculty members of various departments at Gadjah Mada University.

INCULS already offers to regular programs for the University of California (UC) and The United State Indonesia Society (USINDO) as well as Monash University and The Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS).
