AIYA is proud to announce its newest project, the National Australia Indonesia Language Awards (NAILA).

NAILA aims to reward and foster the development of Indonesian language learning in Australia at all levels.

Primary school students through to executive level speakers will be invited to participate in a national speech competition carried out in several stages, culminating with a national awards ceremony in Melbourne.

Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their language skills, discuss bilateral issues and share traditional arts, culture and musical performances with the public.

As Indonesian language classes continue to decline in Australia, NAILA hopes to incentivise language learning and reward high-level proficiency to encourage deeper communication, respect and understanding between our two nations.

Keep your eye on the AIYA jobs board for more information about upcoming NAILA committee positions, or join our mailing list to hear more about NAILA.
