News Item: Indonesian class at BYU
Displaying 1 - 1 of 1 -- Add News
An Indonesian course will be offered next semester (Winter 2008) for those with a returned missionary-level proficiency in the language. The course is FLang 330R, section 003, and it will be held each Tuesday from 4:00 to 6:30 pm. Chad Emmett, a geography professor and former missionary in Indonesia, will be teaching the course.
One perk of taking the course is that you will have the opportunity to take a challenge exam by which you can earn up to 16 graded credits for 101- through 202-level courses in Indonesian. You could potentially get 16 credits of A’s to count toward your GPA.
Also, even if you are not a BYU student, you can probably still take this course. It is offered as an “Evening Class” which means that you can register for it by being a “Continuing Education” student. All you have to do is fill out a registration form on their website and send in an ecclesiastical endorsement from your bishop. They have a rule that you must be at least 23, but if you are only 21 or 22 and just returned from a mission, you can let them know your circumstances (this class is not offered all the time, you just returned from a mission, etc.) and they will most likely grant you an exception. You can find all the information you need about Evening Classes and registering on their website: http://ce.byu.edu/ev/.
Please spread the word about this course, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about it. Thanks.
