            Abstract

            This paper proposes new ways of reimplementing a form of bilingual education in Indonesia. Bilingual education was once implemented at international standard schools in Indonesia but failed for some reasons. The authors propose a more suitable form of bilingual education in Indonesia based on language acquisition theories which suggest that bilingual education should be developed on the basis of content-based instruction focusing on visual and physical ways of teaching. In this respect, physical education and arts should be prioritised over mathematics, ICT, and science subjects.
