Abstract

Indonesian language learning for foreign speakers is becoming increasingly important, considering the function of language as a diverse interactive instrument. This research aims to outline the components of correspondence involved in Indonesian language learning for foreign speakers in the BIOC online course. This research used a descriptive-qualitative method with contextual analysis. The research was conducted by directly observing the online class activities and interviewing the experiences of the students who attended the course, who came from various countries as foreign speakers of Indonesian. Data was collected through homeroom teacher perceptions and interviews with BIOC students. The study used social constructivism theory as a benchmark for whether BIOC used effective methods in teaching BIOC students or not. The results showed that correspondence components communicate and affect the continuity of Indonesian language learning. Instructors who can use various demonstration techniques and understand the qualities of novice foreign speakers will generally establish a more comprehensive learning climate. Likewise, the message conveyed by the speaker also plays a vital role in how the understudy can interpret the learning materials. The only obstacles in the learning cycle were internet connection problems and the Zoom time limit, which only gave 30 minutes to use their live chat when delivering messages. The results of this study provide suggestions for improving lesson plans and techniques for teaching Indonesian to non-native speakers at BIOC, focusing on methodologies that are more logical and in line with the needs of students.
