When I arrived in Jakarta, to work as an English Teacher, I could not speak a word of Bahasa Indonesia. Two years later I was still having terrible trouble understanding what was being said to me. After only three weeks with ‘Bahasa Indonesia Jakarta’, I was starting to maintain two way conversations with my Indonesian friends. BIJ, I can’t thank you enough! Terima kasih banyak!

”  – Myke Jones CEO Micromine Australia

I had such a hard time learning Bahasa Indonesia. After nearly six years of living in the country and to my shame, I remained utterly useless at speaking the native tongue. I would always find excuses – too busy, too difficult, too tired. The only reason for my failure was myself. I decided to try again and contacted Bahasa Indonesia Jakarta. It was the second best decision I had made in six years, the first was proposing to my Wife.

– Kim Jung Woo Samsung

I was introduced to Bahasa Indonesia Jakarta, by a colleague, after being commissioned by a well known American cooking magazine for their series called “The Flavors of Indonesia”. I signed up for a three day ‘intensive’ course that covered the bare basics. It was an amazing experience and I learned a lot, not only about Bahasa but some helpful tips on Indonesian etiquette too! What a great team. I would recommend you in a flash!
