The type of the syllabi is topic syllabi where student will improve their listening, speaking, writing and reading skills by discussing several specific topics such as daily activities, education, culture, sports, health, travelling and others. However, they will first be introduced to basic knowledge of Indonesian language system such as grammar, pronunciation, letters, words, sentence, paragraph, and simple discourse.
