Testimonials From 3 of More Than 100 Online Students…

I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed my online classes with Daniel!

Daniel was a fantastic teacher – he was very patient, good at listening, knowledgeable, & we discussed a lot of different and interesting topics !

The internet connection to the school was also excellent which made learning online easy…. I think maybe even better than being in the same room as we could read from the same document on the computer while facing the camera.

I would highly recommend online classes to students who would like to learn & practice speaking Indonesian with an expert teacher, if overseas or not able to travel to the school. We covered informal language and some grammar (in a good way).

Terima kasih Mas Daniel dan Cinta Bahasa!!


Marianne Doyle

Cinta Bahasa is a great place to learn Indonesian either virtually, as I did for 5 months, or live, as I did recently in a 2 week intensive course. Both teachers I studied with were expert instructors, and both with fun and lively personalities that make learning fun.

I started with Daniel online, once a week. Daniel gets students speaking and learning right away with an easygoing style. He was very receptive to my learning style and quickly adapted to teaching me in a way that I find most effective. He was a joy to learn with. Then I got a chance to go to Bali and take a two-week intensive course with Novi, and finally meet Daniel whom I had only known through Skype.

For anyone interested in learning Indonesian, who does not live in Indonesia, I highly recommend getting your beginner skills down first through private, online Skype lessons. Then, a week or two intensive class at Cinta Bahasa is a great way to solidify your skills. I very much enjoyed not only all the wonderful instruction, but the wonderful staff and owners who take great pride in providing expert language instruction.

Rachel Meyer

CEO, ABC Languages School Inc.

“I had about 36 hours online Skype lessons with Winda and I enjoyed it very much. She was always friendly to me, for her it was in the afternoon, and for me early morning in Belanda (the Netherlands). Thank you for the good lessons you teach me.

Then when I arrived in Bali, every morning in two weeks I walked to Little Tree in Kuta to meet Trias for lessons. It was always a good start of the day to meet her to learn Indonesian language.

Thank you for the many conversations, I learned a lot about the language and also from Bali/Indonesia and their tradition. Terima kasih.”

A Few More testimonials from the more than 100 students who have Learned Indonesian Language Online with us…

The school is friendly, offers a wide variety of services. The teachers I met were really helpful and very encouraging. Winda was a wonderful teacher. We started online while I was still in America and I was really glad to be in her class when I arrived in Ubud. She is very patient and never lets any frustration show—even when she has to explain things again and again. She went the ‘extra mile’ for me and brought in a friend to have a conversation with me who was also involved with organic farming. It was really helpful and I gained some really useful vocabulary. I look forward to studying with her again!

Sally Silverstone

Learning online with Cinta Bahasa has been an extremely rewarding experience. The patience, dedication and knowledge of my teacher Daniel is truly exceptional. He was always happy to answer my endless questions and I learned so much more than basic Bahasa Indonesia. Our lessons could include discussions on anything from the culture and social issues of Indonesia to the latest movie. I laughed a lot and learnt a lot! I am very lucky to have had Daniel as my teacher and can’t thank Cinta Bahasa enough for the care and pride they took in ensuring my learning experience was of the highest level. Terima kasih banyak.
