Learning Indonesian Language at Universitas Airlangga (LINGUA)

Greetings from Universitas Airlangga!

Universitas Airlangga designs LINGUA for international students who wish to expand their knowledge and experience through learning the Indonesian language and culture. We hope that the more international students come to UNAIR, the more they will know Indonesia, along with its local characteristics. This program could be a medium where students learn to be global citizens through various cultural and educational activities.

LINGUA offers a full waived tuition fee for Indonesian language and culture enthusiasts willing to learn and understand the subjects via intensive lessons. This program will be conducted online for one semester (5 months). It comprises two learning programs: LINGUA Level A1 & A2, which focuses on the beginner-level lesson, and LINGUA Level B1 & B2, which consists of the intermediate level lesson.

Through synchronous and asynchronous online learning, students can improve and develop their practical life-skills of understanding the Indonesian language and culture. After accomplishing this program, students will achieve the certificate of attendance and transferable academic transcript.
