Hi! My name is Inten and I'm from the beautiful island of Bali, which is part of Indonesia.

I've been teaching Indonesian to students online and decided to create this course to reach more people. Lots of my students  wanted to learn Indonesian before taking a trip to Bali - which is a great idea to help you be able to better interact with the locals.

Lots of my students were just interested to learn how to speak Indonesian, even if they didn't have any any future plans to travel to Indonesia. Either way, I love teaching people about my country, its language and its culture.

By the end of this course, you'll know the basics of Bahasa Indonesia and be ready for simple conversations with Indonesian people.

I hope you enjoy it!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to learn how to speak Indonesian, either for fun or because they plan to travel there

I was born and raised in Bali, Indonesia, but for the past 6 years I've been living a nomadic lifestyle. I've  traveled to 45 countries so far and I understand how knowing the local language can be very useful when traveling abroad. I've been teaching Indonesian online since January 2019 and love it so much, that's why I want to share my experience with people from all around the world about Indonesian language and its culture. Since I'm from Bali, I would love for the opportunity to introduce you to Balinese culture.

I also have a website about Indonesian language called Advance Your Indonesian.
