This course was fantastic! During the past month I have learned bahasa Indonesia at Cinta Bahasa and when I speak to the local people, they always compliment me on my speaking skills. This class has provided me with the skills to talk to people effectively and communicate my need to others. It has also allowed me numerous insights into the Balinese people. By having the ability to speak with the local people, I have dramatically learned about their culture, traditions, and religion a well as their desires, fears and thoughts about the future. In short, I’ve learned much much more than language, I have experienced an entire mode of thinking. Lastly, the people at Cinta Bahasa are amazing. I am thankful to Trias and Tony for their patience and understanding. They have made learning and language very fun indeed. James E. London July 2017

I found learning quite difficult but I persisted with the learning. Ann Howden-Church June 2017

I chose to undertake 100 hours of private lessons with Cinta Bahasa as a complete beginner because I wanted to learn as much as possible in a short space of time.

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

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

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.

Lisetta Trebbi

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.

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.

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.

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

We stayed for “only” 20 hours, but I already feel comfortable to engage in simple conversations!

Bagus! I really enjoyed the class and the teachers. They were very friendly and easy to learn from.

Anyways, I learned a lot and it reallt help me during my stay in Bali! Terima kasih!

The crash course taught by Okta was very informative. Okta was an amazing teacher and very helpful in explaining and answering questions.

Awesome class! Vetta is a great teacher. She can teach in many different ways to connect with her students. I liked the class because I learned a lot and I laughed a lot. We had fun in our class and I am excited to take more classes. Thank you.

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.

Saya sangat suka belajar bahasa Indonesia di Sekolah Cinta Bahasa. Cara mengajar sangat bagus. Guru saya, Mbak Vetta, juga sering bantu kalau ada pertayaan. Dia baik sekali. Belajar bahasa Indonesia bersama murid-murid lain lebih enak. Terima kasih Cinta Bahasa.

I’m so glad this class was on my first full day in Indonesia. The words, numbers, and phrases will really come in handy for my 3 weeks in Bali. Plus, Okta had a very friendly positive way of teaching. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Bahasa Indonesia!

Great class! Really helpful! I expected to find it difficult but Sidhi made it easy with lots of repetition and practice. I definitely recommend it.

Hana, Sidhi and Dewa – great combination between the three of them. Covered structure, vocabulary and conversation – exactly what I wanted. I feel like I learnt so much! Thank you for some fun 20 hours. Saya kembali lagi.

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 was really interesting and helpful. It was good being in a small group so that everybody could ask questions. The teacher was really nice so I learned a lot and I’m looking forward to practice at home everything we learned today.

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!

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.
