Ana Rosmiati


Darmasiswa was a learning program about art and culture in Indonesia. This program was openedto all foreign students who had an interest in learning about art and culture in Indonesia. Darmasiswa program was regularly held every year. The purpose of Darmasiswa Program was to introduce Indonesian arts and culture to the world through foreign students who had an interest in attending lectures about art and culture in the colleges organizing Darmasiswa program that had been appointed by the Directorate of Higher Education. There were a number of art colleges in Indonesia which were designated as Darmasiswa learning centers. The main requirement that must be fulfilled by Darmasiswa students when choosing a program implemented in Indonesian was to have the willingness to learn Indonesian. If they chose an international program, they do not have to master Indonesian. To expedite the process of learning Indonesian, each Darmasiswa organizing tertiary institution had instructors for foreign students (BIPA). One learning model that could be developed in Indonesian language learning activities was using the Cooperative Learning (CL) model. Each Darmasiswa student in the learning process needed a learning group that helped each other and motivated them to follow learning materials both in class and outside. This cooperative learning model was more suitable to be applied in learning Indonesian, especially when communicating using Indonesian. Additional vocabulary of the Indonesian language was easily memorized with group learning methods.
