- Learning Indonesian as foreign language aims to make foreign students proficient in the language, and to understand Indonesian literature and culture. Representing Indonesian literature as a part of local wisdom and Indonesian culture is folklore. This study first aims to analyse the media, which instructors have used in teaching Indonesian as foreign language, especially material related to Indonesian literature and culture, and second to analyse the results of a survey conducted on foreign students learning Indonesian, focusing on their responses on the use of folklore comics as a medium for learning about Indonesian literature. The results of the study first show that folklore has never been used in Indonesian foreign language teaching. The material used to date has merely highlighted Indonesian culture, especially regional dances, art and food, with the use of whiteboards and pictures as media. If used as the learning medium, folklore comic would present the values of local wisdom and ensure that foreign students learn about such wisdom in the depiction of moral and good behavioural values, as well as historical and cultural values. Second, based on the results of the survey of 50 foreign students, it was found that 82% thought that folklore comics were used very well as a learning medium, 12% said they were well used, and 6% said they were good enough to be used as a learning medium in Indonesian literary and cultural learning.
