State Islamic University Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta is one of the islamic center university in Indonesia. Since its name has been changed from IAIN to UIN, State Islamic University Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta strives to be world class university that require its graduations to have a high skill in foreign languages. Its graduations at least should pass TOEFL or TOAFL as it has been standardized by the univeristy.
As a way to complete this vision, UKM Bahasa-FLAT as one of unit of students activity focusing on developing foreign languages skills will conduct foreign language orientation to provide opportunity for all students in general to learn foreign languages in January 2017 to February 2017. We hope the event that will be conducted for about five weeks can help the students to master basic knowledge of foreign languages. In addition, Foreign Language Orientation Indoor & Outdoor also can be a beginning process to train selected students to be member of UKM Bahasa-FLAT and agent of foreign languages in State Islamic University Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta.
Foreign Language Orientation Indoor & Outdoor is an annual event conducted by UKM Bahasa-FLAT. This is as a way to regenerate and to provide opportunity for UIN Jakarta students in general to learn basic foreign languages skill (English, Arabic, Mandarin, Korean, French, and Japanese).
This year, FLO Indoor & Outdoor has been scheduled for five weeks. The activities within the event are language and organization classes. English, Arabic, Mandarin, French, Korean, and Japanese are languages that will be taught in FLO. Brief History of UKM Bahasa-FLAT, Plenary Technique, Conflict Management, Study in FLAT and Management of Organization are organization materials that will be delivered in organization classes. There are additional activities such as games, camping, and others.
FLO Indoor has two sessions for each day. Then, an evaluation is conducted to evaluate the progress of the participant after the class each day. Besides these, the committee will also give mentoring sessions to make the participants have sense of togetherness among them. This is the general description of FLO Indoor of UKM Bahasa-FLAT. While FLO Indoor focuses in theory of languages and organization, FLO Outdoor is the opposite. We give the participant more chance to do the practical activities such as speech, debate, story telling, and others.
