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 Indonesian Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

I have started many different languages over the years-- this course has helped me progress further than any other language I have tried. The method works much better than trying to memorize words or phrases-- The problem is when an Indonesian person speaks to me-- they assume I can understand as well as speak.

Service and delivery comments:

I need a longer gap when a response is required-- cannot think that fast as a beginner

"Native speakers were impressed"

Comments about Indonesian Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

On my vacation to Indonesia, the native speakers were impressed with my accent, or rather, lack of accent. Though it was still difficult to hold a conversation, it was easy enough to convey my desires and/or intentions.
