How to learn Indonesian by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!

We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for exemple, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
It will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun, in Jakarta, Bali or another city in Indonesia, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

Why speak Indonesian while traveling?

The ideal destination for an exceptional stay 

The largest archipelago in the world is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape to a natural paradise. Crystal clear seas, exuberant forests, active volcanoes, a rich biodiversity of no less than 47 ecosystems, the presence of legendary animals such as tigers, rhinos and orangutans: the beauty of this country is unique in the world. 
The lucky ones who get the opportunity to visit the various islands of Indonesia will also be able to celebrate the ethnic and cultural diversity which is revealed in the rich tradition of the Batak, Toraja or Minangkabau peoples for example. This diversity can be easily spotted in the local architecture, which has been influenced by India, China, the Middle East and even Europe! 
With a population of around 250 million, Indonesia has a diverse economy, which is particularly active in agriculture, the textile industries, oil and natural gas. 

Make a success of your stay in Indonesia

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

Spoken by more than 225 million people, Indonesian is the official language of Indonesia and one of the languages ​​spoken in the Republic of East Timor.
Learning Indonesian is less difficult than other Asian languages, because it is spelled with the Latin alphabet and has no accents and tones like other languages ​​of the region. 
Here are some examples to get started in learning the pronunciation of this language: 
The consonant j is pronounced between “dj” and “di”;
The consonant c is pronounced “tch”, as in “match”;
The “r” rolls;
The consonant h is aspirated.
We invite you to listen to the pronunciation of the letters by clicking on the following link: Indonesian alphabet with audio.
