Learn Indonesian With Bowie Holiday

Thetraveljunkie.org – Indonesia’s geographic proximity and strategic importance to Australia make it vital to understand its peoples, politics, history, languages and cultures. I am now offering Indonesian Language lessons which I will tailor make to suit your needs.

My lessons cover the basic vocabulary and grammar of formal and informal Indonesian as it is used in everyday life. Lessons can be tailor made to suit your needs – whether you want to practise Indonesian conversation for work or travel or learn how to write in Indonesian. Lessons can include role play scenarios, writing exercises and culture notes. Live conversation with a native speaker is the key to success.

Learning Indonesian online with Bowie on Google Meet or WhatsApp is a huge time saver and can work for you wherever you are. Choose lesson times that fit your daily schedule and learn online from any location. If you have 120 minutes, you can stay where you are, save your time and practice your individual Indonesian skills with Bowie Holiday, who gives you oral and written feedback instantly.

With only a basic level of Indonesian, you can easily take yourself off the beaten track and find yourself travelling across Java’s mountains and volcanoes, wandering in East Nusa Tenggara’s beaches, working in Jakarta, getting cultural in Yogyakarta, partying in Bali, diving some of the most beautiful spots in the world at Raja Ampat in West Papua, or exploring the local wildlife with the Komodo Dragons in Komodo National Park and the orangutans in Kalimantan and Sumatra.

The sessions are one-on-one for all levels: from absolute beginners to more experienced learners, which is ideal for students, busy professionals and anyone who is interested in knowing a bit more about Indonesia and in learning Indonesian language and culture. Everyone is welcome!
