Primary Awardee 2020
Jake is 11 years old and has lived in both Australia and Indonesia. He loves animals, outdoor sports and hanging out with his friends. He actually finds learning Indonesian difficult but has been motivated by the NAILA competition and would like to thank NAILA and the sponsors for helping him in his language learning.
Jake has done lots of interesting things in Indonesia. He has visited an active volcano, learned how to surf and welcomed 1500 guests to a traditional wedding. He has also eaten grasshopper, chicken intestine and snake. Jake expects his experiences learning about another culture will be useful in the future.
