This paper presents a proposal for a multimedia approach to supporting the learning of how social and cultural meanings are conveyed through making appropriate choices in both colloquial varieties of Indonesian and Indonesian regional languages. Segments of Indonesian television programs can be selected as quasi-authentic materials to illustrate regional uses of Indonesian and local languages in a wide range of common situations. The materials would be designed to enable learners to access and interact with the material in a number of ways, ranging from simply viewing them with or without written transcriptions and sociocultural explanations, to such tasks as selecting the appropriate response at pauses in the playing of these video clips. The material would thus lend itself to learner-managed study, while also being substantial enough to provide a regular component of beginning, intermediate and advanced courses in Indonesian.
