BBIP classes are popular because they are so good – our students will tell you so.
The Bahasa Conversation class at Scotch College was excellent. Our teacher Ibu Martina was wonderful and provided a whole range of activities to help me improve my Bahasa. I would recommend this group to anyone who wants to have fun whilst improving their Bahasa language skills. Barbara, Conversation class, Swanbourne

Questions . . . and answers
Getting ready to return to Indonesia
I have never been to formal lessons for Bahasa Indonesia before. I have lived in Indonesia for some time and can put words together. After 2 terms of BBIP I feel a lot more fluent and gaps in my grammar are being filled so my language is more understandable. Our class is relaxed, informative and fun and I look forward to next term. Jane, Beginners’ 2b, Swanbourne, June 2021
As a mature student studying the Indonesian language it stretches ones mental capacity ..,The teachers deliver the language and culture of Indonesia in a meaningful way ..its a relaxing way to learn and ultimately when we can travel to Bali it will be extremely practical knowing the basics ..

Even though we can’t travel to Indonesia right now, it is a great time to try and improve our language skills. I have really enjoyed Ibu Wieke’s class. We have a great group who interact really well together and Ibu Wieke strikes the perfect balance between making the classes both fun and challenging. A great way to meet interesting people too.

Guru hebat. Excellent combination of language learning and cultural issues in our Beginners Level 2 class. Christine
Ibu Wieke always conducts her classes well and includes everyone in the lesson. Anne Marie
The teachers and organisers at BBIP are very passionate about what they do and it shows in their teaching. The native speakers in particular provide practical application of the Indonesian language as well as cultural context. Each course I’ve taken has been a fantastic experience. Tom

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
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.
