My Cinta Bahasa classes with Vetta have made my stay here in Bali so much richer. I’ve learnt about the culture in Bali and Indonesia, and can now speak with friends, neighbors and others who look after me hear in Bahasa Indonesia. Vetta has been patient and always willing to explain the nuances of grammar and meaning and give me language insights from her life in Java and Bali. With much gratitude and satisfaction.

Scot Malloy (crash course)
May 2017

I loved my 4 weeks intensive course at Cinta Bahasa. My teachers, Tony and Trias, were fabulous and complemented each other really well. With Tony, I studied the language structure and grammar, and with Trias I was using the in conversation. We never ran out of things to talk about! Tony and Trias were both flexible, finding materials of interest to me, as well as moving at a good pace as my skill developed. I loved the system of 2 hours then change teachers to keep the pace up and variety. They were very patient and interested. Terima kasih.

Michelle
April 2017

I’m very happy about taking this course. Guru Wulan and the teaching method you have are very good, because it made me realize I’m able to talk in this language in less time that I thought. My native language is not English, but the way Guru Wulan taught us didn’t require very high English level. I highly recommend this course to whoever wants to learn bahasa Indonesia from zero.

Diego Dumarino
April 2017

A really well designed course making. Studying bahasa Indonesia fun and interesting. I don’t think learning a new language can ever be easy but this course is structured to guide you through in a logical and clear way. Great teacher too! Thank you.

Kirsty Spence
April 2017

Wulan was a really good teacher. She was always patient with the students and try to explain every question which we had. I recommend this language school. For sure I will come back to continue the second course.

Very useful class. I am happy that guru Gusde was willing to adapt to the issues I wanted to learn. Also, very good that we talked a lot, not only focus on writing. It was not too difficult, just a lot of new words to remember! Terima kasih banyak! Very useful to get your notes – well explained.

Lisetta Trebbi
March 2017

I am very impressed with Cinta Bahasa and would highly recommend it to others. Coursework was structured in a progressive and practical sequence and the booklet was organized and engaging. I cannot speak highly enough about Gusde. His easy-going yet professional attitude made each class exciting and stimulating. His wonderful sense of humor charm and cultural awareness was remarkable. I would love to continue my studies with Cinta Bahasa and I hope Gusde is available for the next level class. Terima kasih banyak!

Sam Blattrer
March 2017

The beginner level class with Cinta Bahasa was worth it, in every sense. Gusde was an engaged, thoughtful teacher always willing to adapt lessons and techniques for each individual. And the course work was well structured and paced, building intuitively as it progressed. I particularly credit Gusde with bringing joy and a lot of energy to every class, which made evening classes productive even after a long day. I look forward to taking the next in the series. My suggestions for improvement would be to have classes continue whether or not every sudent attends and make it up to the student to get the information needed to catch up and to have consistent homework, perhaps even additional optional work. Thank you Gusde for an amazing experience and a real education in bahasa Indonesia.

Annelise Lynch (crash course)
March 2017

Okta is the best! Answered all of our questions and was slow to introduce sentence structure. Felt like I understood things in a building block and know how to be respectful. I feel much more confident working with kids at my jobs and I can’t work to practice more!

Juliette Belinger (crash course)
March 2017

Really great! Guru Okta was so wise. She covered all of the phrases I need for my time here in Bali.

Very good teacher! Some people lived in Bali and talked already a little bit the language. I am beginner, sometimes I think we went too fast forward, or maybe I am slow.

Hans Ruderstam

This month at Cinta Bahasa has been so valuable! We all learnt very quickly and knowing and using the Indonesian language has changed my entire experience here.

Jessica Brown
March 2017

I had an amazing month learning bahasa Indonesia here! It went by too fast. Vetta is very competent and makes everything simple. And she’s also very patient.

Sekolah Cinta Bahasa bagus. Saya mulai bicara bahasa Indonesia satu bulan yang lalu dan mulai tulis bahasa untuk teman-teman saya yang orang-oraang Indonesia. Terima kasih untuk guru Vetta, guru bahasa Indonesia saya.

Alexander Alekseenko
March 2017

Прекрасный курс. Уже в первые дни я смог начать говорить с индонезийцами, каждый день углубляя беседу. Напросто заниматься каждый день в течение месяца, но результат налицо: сейчас я могу общаться с теми людьми, с которыми раньше не получалось из-за их плохого знания английского.

James (crash course)
February 2017

Thank you for this 20 hours class! I am impressed by how much I improved in as little as one month. The material is very useful. Though I would have liked to practice more the speaking and writing. A lot of vocabulary, grammar, and how to put everything in a sentence. Bagus. The class was more oriented on the understanding – which is very good, but would need to be a little bit more on the speaking, for my point of view. Terima kasih banyak.

Lisa McComb
February 2017

I am a repeat offender at Cinta Bahasa, having studied here a number at times over the years, either in Ubud or via Skype. Each time I have decided to improve my bahasa Indonesia, I have had no hesitation in returning to the school. The teachers aare lovely, and always willing to customize what we study to my interest, and approach teaching strategically. Above all, they have an infectious more of language which makes learning with them a joy.

Tom Powell Davies
February 2017

The class at Cinta Bahasa was great. I knew some words and phrases before starting the course, but was not able to communicate using few sentences. After one week I feel like once I will repeat and remember all the vocabulary, I am able to really speak using bahasa Indonesia. We will probably come back for another course in future!

Pia Kegler
February 2017

We stayed for “only” 20 hours, but I already feel comfortable to engage in simple conversations! The teachers are doing an excellent joy in tailoring the courses to your individual needs, the atmosphere is always very friendly and professional. I can highly recommend the courses at Cinta Bahasa to make the most out of your stay in Indonesia.

Raisha Chamberlain
February 2017

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!

Megan Ranrig (Global Hobo)
February 2017

Terima kasih untuk kelas bagus! Saya belajar banyak bahasa Indonesia. Sorry that a lot of the Hobos are super slack, it’s only because they are lazy, it doesn’t reflect badly on you. Will miss Gusde. Cheers,

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.
