– how to use basic question words, such as ‘who’ and ‘what’;
– most used vocabularies. This includes objects we find around us at home or school or office as well as lists of adjectives and verbs to help you make good sentences in Indonesian;
– how to make affirmative, negative, and question sentences;
– basic grammar;
– conversations that involve various situations, such as: greetings, numbers (telling time, fractions, going shopping, etc), asking for directions, traveling around the city, going to the market, etc.
A: How many lessons are there in total for basic or beginner class?
Q: There are around 20 lessons in total for basic or beginner class, however you can already make good, simple sentences in Indonesian language after you have completed the first 4 lessons, and your Bahasa Indonesia skill will even improve better after you have finished until lesson 10.
A: If I’m at intermediate level, what is the curriculum like?
Q: It depends on what subjects you’d like to focus more on. If you’re more interested in general Indonesian, then the lesson materials are more general, including improving your vocabularies in various situations and grammar. For those who’d like to focus more on certain subject(s) such as medical or business or military or any certain subject, then the materials will focus more on the subject you choose.
A: Can I also learn about Indonesian slang language?
Q: The Indonesian slang is non-standard styles of expression used throughout the country which are very heavily promoted by the media and function in daily discourse, usually in informal settings. It is possible for intermediate or advanced learners to learn about the Indonesian slang as the grammatical structures follow the standard form of Indonesia’s national language. However for those at beginner level, it will be much easier and less challenging to learn the standardized formal Indonesian language, and as you progress you will find learning the Indonesian slang much easier.
A: Can I learn Bahasa Indonesia via Indonesian songs or movies?
Q: It is not a bad idea at all to improve your Indonesian language by listening to Indonesian songs or watching Indonesian movies, especially if you’d like to improve your Indonesian slang. However if you’d like to improve your formal Indonesian, it’ll be a better idea if you listen to Indonesian news broadcast instead.
