During the even semester of the academic year 2020/2021, INCULS had the opportunity to conduct an intensive Indonesian language course for international students enrolled in the Masters and Postgraduate programs at Universitas Gadjah Mada under the Gadjah Mada International Fellowship scheme. This program was held on May 10 until August 6, 2021.
Prior to the beginning of the course, students were required to take a placement test as an instrument to evaluate their Indonesian language skills and determine their levels. There were 20 students from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Uganda, Malawi, Rwanda, Ghana, Nepal, and Sudan participating in the online test. The results of the placement test divided them into three groups. One of the students had advanced proficiency level, two students were intermediate, and seventeen students were in the beginner class. The teachers were all lecturers from Faculty of Cultural Science, Universitas Gadjah Mada.
