How fast can you learn Bahasa Indonesia?
This depends on the level of mastery that you want to achieve. If you the beginner level (CEFR A1) takes around 150 hours of study. To reach C1 level (advanced) will take approximately a total 1000 hours of study. Study hours are a combination of instruction and self study. You can speed up your learning by being focused, using Indonesian whenever you can and getting quality instruction.

What is hard about Bahasa Indonesia?
If you are used to the English pronunciation, Bahasa Indonesia pronounce their alphabet the Dutch way. So if you’re a Malay speaker there is some unlearning and relearning to do.
The good thing about that is the consistency. You learn one Bahasa Indonesia and you can speak to all 199M+ Indonesian speakers.
Bahasa Melayu for e.g. is different in West and East Malaysia.
Is there a difference between "Indonesian" and "Bahasa Indonesia"?
No. Bahasa is Indonesian for “language”. “Bahasa Indonesia” means “Indonesian language” in Indonesian.
Why is the online Indonesian course cheaper than the in-person course?
Our online Indonesian course has exactly the same curriculum, teachers, number of hours and group size. But compared to the in-person class, we save money because there is no need to reserve a classroom. We pass these savings on to our online class participants.

Not only is Bahasa Indonesia the world’s 12th most spoken language with 199 million speakers, it’s also the official language of one of Singapore’s neighbours.
There is a lot of interaction between Singapore and Indonesia. Indonesian companies like Gojek are active in Singapore, and vice versa, Singaporean banks and other multinationals have huge business interests in Indonesia. And then there is the tourism vice versa!
