The roles of foreign language in Indonesia has become the debates among linguists, politicians, and policymakers. We argue that the development of any foreign language policy in Indonesia has been shaped and influenced by the political ties and interests of the central government. This political drives impact on the choice and the roles of foreign languages within educational contexts. Thus, this influences the roles of foreign languages in Indonesian education can be seen from primary to university levels. All preferred foreign language in Indonesia becomes the subjects in Indonesian education. This paper recommends that people to people relationship between Indonesians and the people who are the natives of the language should be facilitated by the government to sustain the roles of the language
