She had published Test Your Indonesian Vocabulary book, sold in Singapore’s major book stores, and has written Indonesian course books for LIA and intends to continually improve them.
“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!
“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.”
“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.”
“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.
The Training has definitely added a lot more to my limited Bahasa Indo Vocab, despite still big room for improvement. But this will definitely be a spearhead start to dive in and start conversing, which will be exactly the real learning starts. Thank you LIA, Thank Bu Yuly,
The classes were fun and very well structured for beginners with little knowledge of Bahasa.
Had a great time learning the beginner stage conversational Bahasa Indonesian. Good start to mastering the language although far from being fully competent to converse comfortably. The guru (Ibu Yuly) was very exceptionally patient in giving examples so we can understand. The class interactive sessions were very interesting and at times some of us just lost the bearings but she would gladly guide us back. The 36 hours certainly was just nice for the beginner’s stage. I find writing is much easier than spoken, and will need a lot of practices whenever there are chances to speak or use it.
Ibu Yuly has been very good at teaching us the colloquial aspects of Bahasa Indonesia (beyond the classroom syllabus). This has been very helpful as it allowed me to understand how the language is actually used. I am also able to understand (on a very basic level) reports and television broadcasts that are relevant to my professional work. Overall, the class has been fun and effective, and I feel confident in being able to speak Bahasa in everyday scenarios.
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.
