Course had what I wanted

Pak Zacky was extremely helpful and always able to answer my questions. Course material was extremely comprehensive.

So much better to learn with interaction

Once into the groove of learning Bahasa Indonesia in an online course, I really enjoyed the conversation and opportunity to learn from other students, and of course Pak Zacky.

Pak Zacky was immensely patient and good natured throughout. I got a lot out of the course, including small tips as to how things were the way they were, which you don’t get from other online language resources (e.g. apps).   Rohan, June 2020

Fantastic kick start

Thank you BBIP and in particular Pak Andre. It was fantastic to kick start Bahasa Indonesia. 😊

Active participation

Pak Zacky is a very good teacher and makes the course enjoyable yet interesting, and with a great participation from everyone. Will definitely book more classes untuk belajar Bahasa Indonesia!

No longer nervous

I was a little nervous about learning Indonesian as an adult, but Pak Zacky was a warm and very skilled teacher who put everyone at ease and gave us enough challenge to keep us on our toes but not be overwhelmed. As a former language teacher myself I appreciated the mix of learning techniques used, and reviewing content at the beginning of each lesson. The online module suited me perfectly as well.

Less travel, more learning

A very accessible, time efficient way of having classes without the need to travel after work. Our teacher, Pak Zacky, was friendly, patient and really responsive to queries out of class.

Amazing course

Firstly, thank you for conducting such an amazing course. There was a lot of information presented, but it didn’t feel overloaded at all. Pak Zacky, you have been both patient and kind.     Scott, July 2020

Studying from home

Just wanted to say that Pak Zakky has been a fantastic teacher! He is patient, funny and very approachable and encourages students to give it a go. Pak Zakky was also really helpful outside of class, reviewing a draft Indonesian script I had prepared for an oral exam. The online classes work well and make it possible to study from home. Terima kasih Pak Zakky dan semuanya!    Pak Simon 2020

Super cool

I started Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth course Beginners 2B Kelas Daring in May 2020. This is a very timely experience for online platform with COVID 19 . Our teacher Pak Andre has been very supportive to train us all how to connect to and use excellent online tools and resources. We are all using Abode Connect and Schoology. The class has been a very valuable and rewarding experience both for beginners Indonesian and online learning. Our teacher, Pak Andre is very friendly and engaging and is always on hand to make the classes fun, interesting, and interactive. Pak Andre is super cool and friendly and how lucky are we to have access to a native Bahasa Indonesian speaker conducting the classes.

I agree with Jacqui that Pak Andre encourages students to engage and participate in a manner that actively promotes learning in a friendly and professional environment. I too would highly recommend the Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth courses and huge thank you to Pak Andre for sharing his language, knowledge and expertise. Mary, June 2020

Fun, educative and satisfying

I thoroughly enjoyed developing my Indonesian language skills and intercultural understandings with my teacher, Pak Zacky. It is clear he is a very passionate and dedicated educator who provided enriching learning opportunities for me and my classmates. He delivered well-planned, interactive and exciting lessons every week, and consistently provided constructive feedback in a timely manner. The safe online learning environment he created enabled me to become more confident when speaking in Indonesian and less apprehensive to try new phrases and vocabulary. 

I happily encourage anyone interested in expanding their language skills and knowledge of one of Australia’s most important neighbours to join a course offered by BBIP. The experience will be fun, educative and satisfying. Ayo belajar Bahasa Indonesia dengan BBIP!      Pak Vincent, June 2020

Friendly and professional

I have commenced Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth courses at level 2 this year online which has excellent online tools and resources to access. The class has been a valuable and rewarding experience. Our teacher, Pak Andre has made the classes interesting and challenging. He is both warm and friendly and it’s great to have a native Bahasa Indonesian speaker who is conducting the classes from Indonesia.

Pak Andre encourages students to engage and participate in a manner that actively promotes learning in a friendly and professional environment. I would highly recommend the Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth courses, thank you to Pak Andre, for sharing your knowledge and expertise. Ibu Jacqui June 2020

Expectations exceeded

I signed up for the Conversation class when the classes went online as I do not live in Perth, and I was initially a little bit unsure if my language skills were up to level, however both Ibu Moya and Pak Zacky who was teaching the class were very supportive and provided lots of options for me to continue. During my registration and since then it has been really easy to get in touch with both my teacher and the enrolments/student services people in BBIP.

My teacher Pak Zachy has completely exceeded my expectations for this course. The resources uploaded on to Schoology are great and I can tell that my teacher has put some effort in to selecting appropriate materials which will develop our skills appropriately.

The lessons are well planned and sequenced and my teacher Pak Zachy seems to differentiate almost without effort, ensuring that everyone in the course are challenged at the appropriate level based on where we are in our language learning journey. As a teacher myself I can really appreciate the effort that is put in to running this course and I feel that the cost of the course is also very reasonable.

I look forward to completing another course next term and highly recommend others to give it a go.

Online learning

The online conversation class with Pak Zacky is really good – he is excellent and the online course is working much better than I expected. Thanks to Balai Bahasa for making it happen.        Naomi, May 2020


Great experience

I could not imagine a better introduction to learning Indonesian. Ibu Hara is endlessly patient and very encouraging to all students, whilst also managing to inject humour into each class. It has been a great experience.

Learning the language is just the start.

Thanks for the classes with BBIP. I have truly enjoyed them over the past couple of years and have come a long way with my Indonesian which has in turn fuelled my interest in getting involved in bilateral relations between Indonesia and Australia.  Thank you so much to everyone who manages the organisational side of things and to your wonderful teachers.

Love a challenge!

Absolutely love my BBIP classes, they have given me so much more than I had ever thought when I just wanted to learn a little bit of Indonesian for my holidays in Bali. The conversation class with Ibu Amanda is probably one of the best conversation classes I have ever attended, primarily because she always speaks in Indonesian, even to explain things.  I love that there is a combination of new and challenging vocabulary and that she doesn’t bring her level of conversation down for students but rather requires that they rise to her level.


2 hours well-spent

Saya senang sekali dengan BBIP. Ibu Theresia sangat baik dan menarik. She is very helpful and informative and I like the way she is so punctual. 2 hours is perfect also. I like the balance between culture and language. I wouldn’t change anything.


Ibu Hara + Quizlet = Happy

I think the structure of the course is very good and Hara is an excellent teacher. Quizlet is very useful. Overall I am very happy with the course and plan to continue ideally with Hara as the teacher!!


Interesting, challenging and fun.

Attending Ibu Amanda’s Bahasai Indonesia class has been a valued and very rewarding experience. Ibu Amanda has made classes most interesting, challenging and fun. Ibu Amanda’s style is both warm and friendly, and well informed.  She encourages students to engage and participate in a manner that actively promotes learning in a friendly but professional environment. I can only say that I whole heartedly recommend the Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth courses to anyone, and I know I speak on behalf of all my fellow students, when I say thank you to Ibu Amanda, for giving us all the benefits of your knowledge and that we look forward to seeing you next term.


Great teacher

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Ibu Noni as a teacher. She is so enthusiastic and passionate and lots of fun. We’d love to have her again next term if you can convince her.

Make new friends

I loved chatting with this little eight year old Dayak girl. She was very shy and probably a bit frightened of me. I felt privileged that after our little chat she was happy to have her Mum take this photo with me…Without the work of BBIP I wouldn’t have been able to chat to her or even have been there. BBIP developed my love and interest in the wider Indonesia…. such an enchanting country. Thank you!
