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.
“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.”
The lessons have been very interesting, with a variety of methods used and topics covered at each lesson, tailoring them to suit my needs. This has been very useful for me.
“It has helped me with ordering Indonesian cuisine in Indonesia. With the simple reading materials and real life examples, it was easier for us to grasp the concept.”
I enjoyed Ibu Endina’s lessons very much. I like the emphasis on not only the formal aspects of learning Bahasa Indonesia but also the practical aspects of daily use of informal language /slang. The conversations we had were very interesting as we touched on diverse issues including current affairs, economy, arts and culture . My command of the language has also improved and I am now able to convincingly engage various Indonesians that I met during my several trips to Jakarta during this period. My thanks to Ibu Endina for sustaining my interest in Bahasa Indonesia in the course of the 40 hrs of lessons and for making the lessons very interesting. I will not hesitate to recommend Ibu Endina to others wanting to learn Bahasa Indonesia .
