Ibu Franciska is a really great teacher and conveyed the concepts in a very clear and concise manner. She really helped us to sharpen our reading, listening and writing skills, and went out of her way to ensure that we grasped key concepts. Would highly recommend learning Bahasa Indonesia at LIA. Terima kasih banyak Ibu Franciska! 🙂
“Very useful for conversational and an intro to Bahasa. Quite surprised by how much was covered and that it was altogether manageable.”
Very patient guru to help us in understanding Bahasa better and the small class setting is almost similar to private class at a much lower price.
Bu Santy was very knowledgeable, well-prepared and clear in teaching the intermediate I and II class. I enjoyed and learned much from her lessons! Terima kasih banyak Bu!
Very happy with the teaching pace, professionalism and her (Bu Franciska’s) patience over the duration of this course!.
“Ibu Endina was very good at tailoring the lessons to my needs, realizing my common flaws and targeting the lesson accordingly so that I am confident in conversing and writing in Bahasa Indonesia. I enjoyed the lessons very much with the variety in tasks/ medium of instruction.”
Bu Franciska is always friendly and willing to guide me along with my queries, even after office hours. She goes into detailed explanations of the errors I’ve made to improve my command of the language both during lesson time and via WhatsApp where I send her homework that she has assigned to us after each lesson. Additionally, Bu Franciska has always been very accommodating with our needs to ensure that we have the most conducive lessons possible!
“The teacher is very patient, kind and understanding. She knows how to understand our stress level and teach during the sessions. She is able to balance it well. I strongly advice for the teacher to continue teaching as this. She has also made the class very enjoyable. The Bahasa is pitched at the right level. It is valuable for day to day use in Indonesia.”
Useful conversational skills were taught – in particular I can apply these skills in specific contexts such as discussing about Fintech, applying for a job and negotiating for a pay raise.
“I enjoyed the lessons that we had for our Bahasa Indonesia’s class. The pace was good and the teacher, Ibu Sisi, helped to use relevant examples for us to understand.”
“It was a steep learning curve and thoroughly enjoyable.”
Ibu Endina and Ibu Siska were always very patient with us during class and would answer all our questions even if outside of the course material. The course material is great and covers all the key conversational topics professionals travelling to Indonesia would need to know, and there were many opportunities for participation which made the classes engaging.
We have been coaching conversational and business Indonesian to corporate clients since 2004. We also provide Indonesian trainers, official translators and in-house interpreters to organisations.
