In 2012 CHCCS commenced a skype program with our sister school, Harapan. The skype program allows our students to communicate directly with students at Harapan school via 10 laptop computers located at the back of the Indonesian classroom. This one on one communication with Indonesian students provides the opportunity to practise Indonesian with native speakers, enhancing speaking and listening skills. Students are given a language-based task or challenge to complete every Skype lesson.
They work with their Indonesian buddy to complete the task using a mixture of Indonesian and English. The Skype program helps our students develop cultural awareness, make friends and become more fluent in Indonesian.
