Sample text

So her ‘excuse me’ had been a gentle correction; a supplying of what I’d omitted to say. (Diary entry, Padang Week 2, 9/1/02) I took this correction to heart, noting in the same journal entry how useful it had been and how true it was that a dulu statement by itself will often be inadequately polite. About two weeks later, when after a long and casual chat with a boarding-house mate I am about to take leave solely with a dulu statement, I remember that earlier correction and decide to use permisi after all – saying to him ‘Permisi, mau mandi dulu’ ‘Excuse me, I want to wash for now’ (Diary entry, Padang, Week 4, 21/1/02).

Learners may not know the right formulas to take leave (Hoffman-Hicks, 2000) or may not know how to vary choice of formula according to the social context (Cook, 1985). And in particular, learners may not be able to manage leave-taking as conversation; to cooperate with the interlocutor in bringing the interaction to a close (Omar, 1993; Scarcella, 1983a; and Schmidt, 1993: 29–30). Leave-taking in Indonesian No published empirical descriptions exist of leave-taking in Indonesian. But many politeness formulas to perform this function can be commonly observed.

In comparing two groups of SA learners in Germany – one in a semesterlong program and one in a year-long program – on their reading and writing abilities, Fraser (2002) found that both groups made impressive gains, but the year-long group outperformed the semester group. Thus, while a longer period of stay is generally perceived as preferable, the question of how long is needed to make significant gains in specific skills still remains unanswered. In addition to program length, researcher attention has focused on the degree to which programs promote the grouping of learners and how different arrangements shape language learning opportunities.
