Abstract

Formal education in Brunei Darussalam began in 1914 and has been developing from time to time to form the present day 21st Century Brunei Darussalam State Education System (SPN21). Considering how education in Brunei taught to respect the Malay language, it unconsciously and indirectly exposes the students to the teaching of Indonesian language through the literature teaching that uses books from Indonesia. In this discussion, the focus is on one of the Indonesian novel, namely Atheis by Achdiat Karta Mihardja, used as a textbook in high school for a long time. The use of Indonesian in the reading activity of this novel is quite understandable by teachers and students, but teaching and learning including examination is using Malay. Accordingly, Indonesian does not affect the language of communication in Brunei, instead it is still firmly uses the Brunei Malay Dialect and Standard Malay. Even so, the inclusion of Indonesian literary books, both creative and study books, illustrates the important role of Indonesian in providing an exposure to literature in Brunei as well as showing that Indonesian has become international.
