Test of Indonesian Language Proficiency / TOIFL / TIFL / UKBI Test Preparation

Test of Indonesian Language Proficiency – TOIFL / TIFL / UKBI

Companies and large organizations are contracting Cinta Bahasa to provide long-term Indonesian Language Training and Language Proficiency Test Preparation for their expatriate staff in advance of government regulations requiring proof of Language Proficiency for applying for or renewing a KITAS work permit.

We arrange Individual and Group Courses for these institutions at the same Course Fee for our other Individual Private, Individual Intensive and Group Courses, except these are tailored to the needs of the company or organization, the student, and the Language Proficiency Test.

We have developed an Indonesian Language Proficiency Test Preparation Course which will assist your expatriate staff to prepare to successfully pass the test, along with Practice Tests to help them feel comfortable in the test environment.

Testing can be conducted at the official test location, the Balai Bahasa in each Province in Indonesia, or at Embassies worldwide.

Here is some more information on the Test of Indonesian Language Proficiency:

The Test of Indonesian as a Foreign Language known as TOIFL or officially as UKBI (Uji Kemajiran Berbahasa Indonesia) was developed by the Center for Indonesian Language, National Ministry of Education of Indonesia as a National and International testing standard for measuring Indonesian Language Proficiency for Indonesian speakers, whether nationals or foreigners.

To support this, the Test of Indonesian Language Proficiency was approved by the Ministry of Education for dissemination nationwide through the Decision of the National Ministry of Education, Number 152/u/2003.  The copyright for UKBI is covered by patents numbered 023993 and 023994, granted by the Ministry of Human Rights and Law on 24 January, 2004.

Many of you may be concerned about reports that foreigners will be required to take the test. While we wait for further information about the status of this draft law, please contact us , ask us a question or register for a Private Course which you can schedule to take at any time during the year.

Cinta Bahasa has developed a Private One-to-One Preparation Course for those interested in preparing for the Test of Indonesian as a Foreign Language. We have prepared practice exams that are nearly identical to the official test, along with a great deal of exercises and additional learning materials to help you to be prepared to pass the examination and even to score well.

The length of time required to pass this test depends on your current level of bahasa Indonesia and your Indonesian Language interaction experiences during your time here, estimated to be between 20 and 100 hours of Private Classes. If we have at least 4 students and a maximum of 7, we can also arrange Group Indonesian Language Profiency Test Courses.
