Foreign Languages Association

As the time went by, as have been mentioned above, UKM Bahasa-FLAT expanded its focus into the realm of culture, both Indonesian and foreign cultures. Here, we study and share knowledge of culture such as learn to do Saman dance from Aceh, learn to make Danbo and to do Bon o dori dance from Japan, learn to do dance covering Korean famous pop songs sung by boy bands and girl bands, learn to play board games like scrabble, Igo, etcetera. We biennially held an event namely International Culture Festival (ICFest) as a way of promoting cultures to students of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta. Moreover, together we often go to culture festival held by another institution, go to some embassies, Australian and Indian embassy for instance, or go to cultural centers like Japan Foundation and Centre Culturel Français.

Immersing ourselves in the beauty and uniqueness of cultures does not make us forget our main focus, foreign languages. We still hold a foreign languages classes (now there are 5 languages focus). We even sharpen our language skills through this program called “Training Center” (TC). The sub program of TC are Debate Training, Speech Training, and Newscaster Training, all is done in English and Arabic. As an outcome, we already have several achievements like the 1st winner of English News casting and the 3rd winner of English Speech contest in Annual SAEED National Competition (April 2010) held by UIN Sunan Gunung Jati Bandung. UKM Bahasa-FLAT had also led UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta to be an overall champion in Festival Timur Tengah (April 2013 and April 2014), an Arabic National Competition (Debate, Speech, News casting, Reading Poetry, Calligraphy, Singing) held by University of Indonesia.
