Do rest assured that, in our Indonesian classes at Euroasia, we make learning the language as straightforward as possible.
Course timetables and enrolment
- For most English speakers, the Indonesian language is very much easier than most other Asian languages!
- The pronunciation of Indonesian is pretty straightforward. Most of the sounds also occur in English, and even those that don’t are not too hard to produce.
- Indonesian is written using our Latin alphabet. The written form was originally based on Dutch spelling, but, following spelling reforms, it’s now much closer to English spelling. As a general rule, one letter represents one sound.
- Indonesian is not related to English, and so you won’t find many similarities in the basic vocabulary. That said, the words are not that hard to learn, and quite a lot of English terms have entered the language, particularly in recent times in connection, for example, with IT and business.
- The grammar of Indonesian is also unrelated to English grammar, but it’s not that hard to grasp, especially at lower levels, and you’ll find you can say quite a lot with just a basic feel for the way the language is put together.
