BBIP Board member and Language Ambassador Fiona Bettesworth has published an account of her visit toPulau Komodo in 2015. Fiona explains the reason for the trip:
Tadi, saya menyertakan lomba yang diadakan oleh kementerian pariwisata Republik Indonesia. Saya membuat video yang pendek dengan bantuan pacar saya. Saya dipilih sebagai pemenang dan saya menerima perjalanan gratis ke pulau komodo bersama 9 pemenang lain dari seluruh dunia.
Fiona's illustrated blog, entitled Astaga Naga: Adventures in Komodo, makes interesting reading for anyone learning bahasa Indonesia. The blog has been carefully composed with language that is easy to understand and key words highlighted and the English translation provided. There are plenty of photographs and a video too, to aid comprehension and convey the exciting story of Fiona's journey to Komodo.
Please share the blog through your networks as a resource to aid Indonesian language learning.
NB The blog is in reverse chronological order, so scroll to the bottom of the page for the first entry and work your way up.

Today the Australia-Indonesia Institute announced that BBIP is one of only nine recipients of grants for an initiative designed to strengthen links between our two countries by supporting activities that bring different and innovative perspectives to how we engage with Indonesia.
Ms Julie Bishop, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade said that the grants will promote our partnership with Indonesia in areas including art and culture, education, and economic diplomacy.
BBIP is immensely grateful to the AII and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for this support to bring dynamic Indonesian musicians to Perth to perform for and with WA students in a special schools concert, combining arts, culture and education in an exciting, immersive, contemporary music experience.
