Project description

The National Australia Indonesia Language Awards (NAILA) is an annual competition that rewards and fosters the development of Indonesian language learning in Australia at all levels. Primary school students through to executive level speakers are invited to participate in the competition that culminates with a national awards ceremony and networking program. Participants have the opportunity to showcase their language skills, discuss bilateral issues and share traditional arts, culture and musical performances with the public. NAILA’s mission is to encourage language learning and reward high-level proficiency. This in turn supports deeper communication, respect, and understanding between the two nations.
