Set in contemporary Indonesia, Bagus sekali! 3 examines themes in greater depth appropriate to middle secondary school years. New language structures are integrated with the thorough revision and consolidation of language learnt in earlier school years. Language is tackled to provide older students with greater challenges. Indonesian etiquette, appropriate registers of language and codes of behaviour are also addressed in further details in this level.

The topics and language points of Bagus sekali! 3 have been carefully selected to appeal to teenagers while addressing current curriculum guidelines. Learning technology activities are integrated into the course in line with today's multimedia learning environment.

Students will be captivated by the rich blend of photos and cartoons that deliberately combine culture, humour and language in order to enhance the language-learning experience.

Pearson takes great pride in our authors. We source authors and contributors that are industry leading experts, with extensive experience of teaching and learning in their fields, from every state of Australia. We commission only the best authors who offer valuable insights and something unique to bring to the project.

The Level 3 Textbook includes the following:

Learn how to
Each langkah begins with a Learn how to section, providing students with learning outcomes for each unit.

Researched and set entirely on location in Java, in the culturally important and beautiful city of Yogyakarta, themes covered focus on teenage interests. Modern language is used and students will enjoy being up-to-date with an understanding of popular teenage expressions as well as having a firm grasp of the more formal aspects of language use.

Oral Activities
A wealth of speaking activities ranging from controlled, guided structures to freer, more open-ended activities provide the building blocks for students to apply Indonesian to their own lives. They include:

  • Cobalah ini!
    Short oral drills that focus on key language points firstly introduced in the photo-stories. Photos, realia and illustrations provide students with the stimulus to practise their new skills.
  • Bicara bebas!
    This section enables students to showcase their accumulated language skills. Fun activities, where the students get to use their language independently, are presented in a variety of relevant text types, such as interviews, quizzes, surveys and phone calls.
  • Berani coba?
    These extension activities are ideal for the multilevel classroom.

These short paragraphs alert students to a tricky language point or explain an unusual phrase.

Mari bermain!
Language learnt is further consolidated through fun, competitive games.

Tidak begitu susah!
Grammatical points are presented in a more explicit, detailed and systematic manner, suitable for the more mature language student.

Three fun songs are provided for students’ enjoyment.

Kata-kata baru
A vocabulary section is provided on each chapter as well as an English/Indonesian, Indonesian/English section at the back of the Textbook.

Jangan lupa!
A quick revision of earlier language learnt in previous levels is provided.

Indonesia asyik!
Bagus sekali! is saturated with Indonesian culture, from the photo-stories to the realia and photos contained in the oral activities. Useful tips about Indonesian culture, customs and etiquette are also provided.

Target audience
Years 9–10
