I really enjoyed this course. It’s nice to sit down with a small group and to be able to ask questions as well as practicing together. The teacher (Okta) is patient, enthusiastic and it’s nice to learn from her. I’m going to practice and hopefully I will be able to have small conversations soon. Terima kasih!

For being able to really speak bahasa Indonesia I was a too lazy student learning too few vocabulary. Learning with Sidhi was fun and I’m sure after catching up with the vocabulary I can get around well. Thanks a lot for the course.

Bagus! I really enjoyed the class and the teachers. They were very friendly and easy to learn from. Classes usually started a bit late and I know a lot of our friends stopped coming because two hours felt like a long time. 2 hours was fine for me, but making classes 1-1.5 hours in the future might make more people stay. Anyways, I learned a lot and it reallt help me during my stay in Bali! Terima kasih!

I really enjoyed taking bahasa Indonesia classes with Cinta Bahasa. The teachers and staff are super friendly and fun and I met some lovely people as well as expanding my knowledge of Indonesian. I learnt more this month than I had in the past year living in Bali and would recommend this class to everyone who plans to stay in Indonesia.

Sonja

I had the most amazing (and intense!) 4 days of lessons here. I can’t believe how much I learned in such a short amount of time! The courses were so thorough, and the teachers, Trias and Vetta were both wonderful, fun and very patient. My regret is that I now have to go home (too short). Would love to come back again and continue again! Terima kasih banyak.

I have loved my experience at Cinta Bahasa! I have looked forward to eevery class with Okta aand Gusde. I could not have ever imagined how confident I have become speaking Bahasa Indonesia. I have learnt so much invaluable language and culture with Okta and Gusde and feel confident using the language in my every day life here in Bali. Learning Bahasa Indonesia has opened so many doors for me in Bali and it is greatly appreciated and celebrated by the locals. I have never piched up a language so quickly and confidently as Bahasa Indonesia and I am so greateful for my wonderful teachers Okta and Gusde and the excellent structure and planning that this school provides. I would and will recommend Cinta Bahasa to anyone I meet and look forward to continuing mu studies with this school to become as fluent as I can! What a fantastic experience. I am very grateful Cinta Bahasa. See you soon! P.S. I have made new friends in my teachers and there have been MANY laughs along the way.

The class consolidated what I already know and filled the gaps. It was also great to learn some useful phrases and questions and to understand how to use “you” correctly in different contexts, because I was very confused about it before. Thank you! A fun, relaxed class!

Lindi Kopke

Terima kasih! Okta is a really nice and polite teacher. It was a lot of fun to learn bahasa Indonesia with her. Ok, the basics. I would totally recommend to join the class with her. She explains everything very well – and again if you need that. You can ask questions and she will help you! Great Indonesian crash course.
