"I recommend the Jembatan Bahasa School – please feel free if you have any questions about my experience. I enjoyed a week of the introduction to Bahasa course and have learned basic expressions, pronunciation, and about the structure of the language. I will definitely continue studying Bahasa with the help and teachings of Jembatan Bahasa. The teachers followed a clear outline and exercise sheets were handed out. Additionally I felt that the teaching didactics (mostly immersion based learning) were thought trough and helped to gain the basics in an effective and efficient way."
"Me and my friend took the bahasa Indonesia beginner 2 course with pak Soma. He is a wonderful teacher and learning with him was easy. We would do the classes at home so it was super relaxed and we had a lot of fun. We would speak mostly bahasa Indonesia throughout the class which was very good. Only with one course I learned probably more than over the last three years living in Indonesia, so my only regret is that I didn't do it earlier! I'm excited to continue to the next course. Highly recommend getting private/small group classes with pak Soma!"

"Excellent teachers and a welcoming environment for learning bahasa Indonesia, would highly recommend! Terima kasih Jembatan Bahasa 🙏"
"I had an excellent experience learning additional bahasa Indonesia and brushing up on what I'd learnt some years ago. I highly recommend this school to beginners and all who want to learn the language."
"Pak Soma is honestly the best Bahasa teacher in Bali. He is patient, funny, and kind. His approach is completely different from other teachers as well; you speak Bahasa for the whole lesson (even if you only know a few words and have google translate), which means you progress really quickly. He is so supportive and classes feel like you are sitting and chatting with a friend (which you are!). If you want to learn Bahasa Indonesia and you live in Canggu, you should definitely contact Soma."
