The journey of discovery and adventure continues as students enter the linguistically and culturally rich world of Bagus sekali! 2.

The photo-stories are set in Medan, North Sumatra, providing a very different cultural context to that of Levels 1 and 3. Reflecting the multi-cultural population of Medan, the students who feature in the photo-stories are from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, and their many varied activities provide a fascinating base for students’ oral and reading development. A visit to Jakarta and village life in North Sumatra provide further variety and cultural interest.

Themes in Bagus sekali! 2 include making plans and getting around town, shopping, holidays, eating out, native and/or wild animals and the geography of Indonesia, daily life, clothes and weather.
