As one of the co-founders of LIA, Endina has various teaching experience under her belt since her teenage years. She graduated from National University of Singapore in 2003. Language has always been her interest because she believes language is the key to understanding others. She received various awards in Indonesian and English language and literature in her school days. She has learnt Mandarin, Japanese and is proficient in Javanese dialect.
With these skills and her genuine interest in people, she has involved in various social activities involving people from different countries and backgrounds. She has taught Indonesian language to doctors, bankers, lawyers, and many others.
She loves to teach Indonesian language because she believes Indonesia has lots of potential and she desires Indonesia to be known by more people in the world. With these principles, she always encourages those who want to learn Indonesian to learn beyond language. Therefore, she often gives cultural tips and insights to her students. Endina’s enthusiasm towards language and people, together with her proficiency in the subject she teaches have generated positive feedbacks from her students. In 2015, she sat for UKBI (Uji Kemahiran Berbahasa Indonesia) and attained first place in the test among hundreds of participants.
