The Indonesian Embassy in Lima since 2016 has consistently held BIPA Classes and 2021 is not an exception. During the pandemic the BIPA Class was even more interested. Within 1 week since the opening of the BIPA Class registration for Semester 1 Year 2021, 600 people have registered. This year the Indonesian Embassy in Lima collaborates with the Municipalidad de Lima (Lima City Government) by providing a special slot for 25 students from the Municipalidad de Lima who are interested in learning Indonesian. The Indonesian Embassy in Lima opens 3 classes consisting of 2 classes for the beginner level (A1) and 1 class for the advanced level (A2) which will last for 3 months starting on March 9 – June 10, 2021. One of the advanced level teachers (A2), Fiorella Santa Maria, is a former Darmasiswa participant.

    For this reason, on March 8, 2021, the Indonesian Embassy in Lima held a Semester 1 BIPA Class Opening ceremony which was opened by the Indonesian Ambassador to Lima, Mrs. Marina Estella Anwar Bey and attended by representatives from the Municipalidad de Lima, Indonesian language teachers and BIPA class participants. . In his remarks, the Indonesian Ambassador in Lima said that language is the gateway to getting to know a nation. So, through the Language Class for Foreign Speakers it is hoped that besides learning Indonesian, participants will also get to know more about Indonesian culture which will be facilitated through Indonesian Language Class activities.

Also attending the opening ceremony were representatives of the Municipalidad de Lima, Mr. Christoper Zecevich – Manager of Education and Sports Municipalidad de Lima, who expressed his gratitude for involving 25 students from the Municipalidad de Lima in the Indonesian class for foreign speakers. He also said that the Municipalidad de Lima had collaborated with the Indonesian Embassy in Lima since 2015 through the promotion of Darmasiswa scholarship and KNB scholarship and organizing culinary and language workshops.

The Indonesian Embassy in Lima will later hold Semester 2 in mid-2021. Seeing the interest of Peruvians in learning Indonesian, the Indonesian Embassy in Lima will consider opening more classes in Semester 2 so that they can accommodate more Peruvians who want to learn Indonesian language and culture.
