Summary

Tika was born and raised in Semarang, Central Java. According to her friends, she is a friendly, passionate, and trustworthy person. Loves to watch movies, listen to music, and cook. She has a big interest on learning foreign language since she was in kindergarten. After graduated from Japanese Studies, Dian Nuswantoro University, Semarang, she moved to Cikarang and currently works as secretary / interpreter in a Japanese company in since February 2015. Her motto is “You will never know until you try”.

Motivation

When Tika was in elementary school, her motivation to learn foreign language was simply because she wanted to have friends from other countries. Nelson Mandela once said “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” Her motivation to learn foreign language has changed from simply “wanted to have foreigners friends” became “to get to know its people culture through its language”. If we understand other people's culture, it is easier for us to negotiate and communicate our ideas with them on daily basis even in business level and Polyglot Indonesia helps her to practice Japanese with other Japanese speakers and native and get to know other “foreign” languages. Not only practicing languages, in Polyglot Indonesia we can meet new friends who learn other foreign languages, share about how to learn new foreign language(s) effectively for beginner, share about job/internship/scholarship opportunity, practice public speaking, learn how to manage small group discussion, etc. Furthermore, she also wanted to encourage people, especially children and youths, to be able to speak foreign language(s) as it is one of the requirements to be a global citizen.
