The Indonesian Language
Indonesian, also known as Bahasa Indonesia, is the official language of Indonesia. Indonesia is a form of Malay, an Austronesian (or Malayo-Polynesian) language, which had been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. Standard Indonesian pronunciation, which is taught in this course, is based on the language of Jakarta. Indonesian is spoken by nearly 35 million people as a first language and by 150 million people as a second language. It is also spoken in Thailand, East Timor, Sri Lanka, Africa, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Netherlands, and the US. Besides Indonesian, there are over 300 local languages spoken in Indonesia, however, Indonesian is the primary language in education, government, business and communication. Like English, written Indonesian uses the Latin alphabet.

Comments about Pimsleur Indonesian Level 1 Lessons 11-15 MP3:
Great system for learning. I'm old and forgetful, do have to do each lesson several times, but it really works.
Biggest problem is that the maximum volume in the IOS app is way too soft. I HAVE to use headphones to hear it. If I download the MP3 files and play them in the music app, the volume is fine. Please fix the volume in the app.
