Last week, Year 4 and 5 had a fun time exercising their Indonesian language practice. During a role-playing activity, the students took turns to ask each other what they like and dislike to eat, as well as respond accordingly to the questions asked by their friends. After this activity, we used the information gathered from their friends to construct simple written sentences describing their likes and dislikes of a certain food.
We also watched a video on Padang food, which is the cuisine of the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra, Indonesia. We were amazed by the serving style of a Padang cuisine. It is so different from how we are served at a restaurant in Australia. Bowls of food are laid out in front of customers and they only pay for whatever bowl they eat from. Can you believe that?
