Small-Group Pre-Intermediate Indonesian Language Course

intermediate and advanced level indonesian language textbooksNote: We offer this course for our students who have completed the Group Beginner Course.
If you have learned at a different school or on your own, please contact us to arrange a very brief 10-minute verbal test of your language proficiency to determine which learning option would suit you best.


This course is for those who have some familiarity with the Indonesian language but feel they are below the Intermediate Level, which is basically defined as having a working vocabulary of 700 words or more and are able to maintain a conversation on basic subjects such as family, shopping, directions, introductions, etc.

The Pre-Intermediate Course builds and expands on what you learn during our Small-Group Beginner Course. Our Intermediate Course takes you to the next level, introducing/reinforcing grammar and forms of speech.

We do not focus on Verb Conjugation at the Intermediate Level, rather we teach it privately to students who have completed the Intermediate Course, or who have been assessed to be ready to learn Verb Conjugation, only after discussing the advantages and disadvantages of learning to speak and write in formal Indonesian language.

What Our Students Have to Say!

Please see all of our Student Testimonials here.

Tom started learning Indonesian at the beginning of March, 2012. He practiced the flashcards we provided, paid attention in class, and spoke Indonesian wherever he was able, including with his fellow classmates. Just 6 weeks later, with a vocabulary over 700 words, Tom is able to comfortably speak in Indonesian. In this video, we surprised him with an interview. He was given no time at all to prepare.

Terima kasih banyak Winda. Saya suka sekali belajar Bahasa Indonesia dengan Anda. Anda “great” guru, dan saya senang sekali belajar pre-intermediate A dengan Anda bulan depan!!! Muchas Gracias!!! I found the book very effective and I am happy with the level I have after 40 hours … Best investment I have done so far! It’s not only about learning the language… but you learn a lot about the culture!!

The Pre-Intermediate Course covers a lot of ground, moves very quickly. Much writing and reading out-loud, which I found beneficial. Certainly good value. Recommended!

“Cinta Bahasa has been the perfect language school for me. I could already speak a bit of Indonesian when I enrolled, but with lots of mistakes and holes in my understanding. I could sometimes manage a proper Indonesian question, but then couldn’t understand the answer! I started with the group beginner class, so Ochie and the teachers could assess my level, then they arranged private classes for me, which have been worth every rupiah, really good value. My teacher has such a friendly approach, while being thorough about revising grammar from the ground up. Now I’m learning exactly what I need to progress, filling in the gaps and getting lots of ‘tips and tricks’ I would have missed out on, just sitting with my dictionary or bumbling through like I was before. I realise now how kind my Indonesian friends have been in coping with my mangled version of their language… And how much they didn’t correct!”

“I was already beyond basic beginner level in Indonesian, but lacked confidence and had stopped learning. Then I started a 20 hour course of private lessons with Cinta Bahasa and, even before I’ve finished these, I’m able to talk about most things in daily life with Balinese people, and I’m easily able to form sentences. I still find listening to spoken Indonesian difficult, but it’s getting much easier. I highly recommend the daily classes to anyone who wants to quickly improve.”
