I was already beyond basic beginner level in Indonesian, but lacked
confidence and had stopped learning. Then I started a 20 hour course of
private lessons with Cinta Bahasa and, even before I’ve finished these, I’m
able to talk about most things in daily life with Balinese people, and I’m
easily able to form sentences. I still find listening to spoken Indonesian
difficult, but it’s getting much easier. I highly recommend the daily
classes to anyone who wants to quickly improve.
If one is interested in taking a course in Bahasa Indonesia look no further
than the course offered by Cinta, their team of qualified instructors and
expert use of course materials enhance the learning experience.
I do not consider myself a natural linguist and have never enjoyed learning languages….until I
studied Bahasa Indonesia with Cinta.

I enjoyed the course, and Daniel is a very good teacher. He adapted so great to the needs and the
limitations that I had. I learned a lot. What I learned is to use the language. More than that, you

Having been a student of Bahasa Indonesia in Yogyakarta, and then not learning in a structured
environment after that, I was at a level where I needed specific intermediate lessons and lesson
plans. Cinta Bahasa tailor made a lesson plan for me. Immediately my language structure improved.
The teacher was enthusiastic, supportive and professional. I highly recommend Cinta Bahasa for
conversational as well as business language training. Ochie, Stephen and their team have created a
professional yet inclusive school in Ubud.
Kristie was a fantastic instructor! She met us exactly as our level and made learning Bahasa
Indonesia FUN! We will definitely return to Cinta for our next session of lessons! Thanks Cinta!
Cinta Bahasa has been the perfect language school for me. I could already speak a bit of Indonesian
when I enrolled, but with lots of mistakes and holes in my understanding. I could sometimes manage a
proper Indonesian question, but then couldn’t understand the answer! I started with the group
beginner class, so Ochie and the teachers could assess my level, then they arranged private classes
for me, which have been worth every rupiah, really good value. My teacher has such a friendly
approach, while being thorough about revising grammar from the ground up. Now I’m learning exactly
what I need to progress, filling in the gaps and getting lots of ‘tips and tricks’ I would have
missed out on, just sitting with my dictionary or bumbling through like I was before. I realise now
how kind my Indonesian friends have been in coping with my mangled version of their language… And
how much they didn’t correct!
