United Nations Role Play in Indonesian
04 September, 2017
The United Nations Association of Australia (Victorian Division), the Department of Education and Training Victoria (DET) and the Victorian Indonesian Teachers Association recently held a special language experience for students of Indonesian, which involved students simulating a United Nations conference – all in Indonesian. Two VSL Distance Education Indonesian students, Sarah Bouquet and Rafaela Anja, represented Myanmar. Rafaela’s reflection: Participating in the Model UN was an amazing experience! It was interesting to not only be see how a Model UN General Assembly works, but also be involved in every step, including all the research and preparation needed to represent our country well. With the topic being Mass Atrocity Crimes, as Myanmar representatives, it was a challenge to justify our arguments but that's what made it so fun - to debate with people in a language you don't normally speak! Being part of Indonesian Model UN has broadened my view of Indonesian beyond the confines of the classroom and everyday situation, thus perceiving this language as globally powerful in its own right. Thank you so much to Sarah Bouquet, my fellow delegate for Myanmar who quickly became one of my good friends, and Ibu Maria Obrowski, whose efforts to get us together and helped us with the preparation made this whole experience possible.
