The islands of Bali and Java are steeped in culture, traditions and natural beauty, and they will be the destinations for this language immersion journey to Indonesia. Students will further their studies in the Bahasa language, speaking to local students and artisans as they discover ancient traditions and culture-filled towns. From Sanur on the coral-fringed coast of Bali to lush Ubud in the highlands, they will explore centuries-old temples and UNESCO designated rice terraces. The island of Java presents new adventures, with traditional tea harvesting, Buddhist pilgrimage temples and Balinese cooking classes ensuring students are fully immersed in the culture and language of Indonesia.
