Kang GURU English Language Radio in Indonesia

The KGI radio program is a great way to study English and a great and easy way to learn about Australia's Education Partnership with Indonesia and the work of the Australia Indonesia Partnership. The Kang Guru radio English-language program has 30 minutes of language help, interviews, more bilingual information and as usual news and information about the ties and links between Australia and Indonesia especially in education and culture.

The program is designed for junior high school levels of English. Listen for the new segments but regular segments such as Idioms Inggris will still be on the program.Kang Guru radio is heard on 200+ RRI and selected private and public radio stations all over Indonesia each week.

Some of the KGI broadcast radio stations are community and school-based stations and they broadcast Kang Guru Indonesia radio programs using AM, FM and SW channels right across the Indonesian archipelago every week. That is a total of over 230 broadcasts each week — that's almost 35 KGI broadcasts every day somewhere in Indonesia talking about Australia and Indonesia, education and friendship.
