Learn Indonesian for Kids

Learn Indonesian for Kids in a fun and effective way! We understand that children learn a new language differently. Research has shown that children learn languages implicitly rather than explicitly. In other words, they learn through language exposure from native speakers rather than analyzing grammar points and memorizing vocabulary. With that, we design this Indonesian for kids course so children can learn Bahasa Indonesia effectively.

How will the class be conducted?

The lessons are mostly in Indonesian to give a maximum exposure to children. We use pictures, gestures, realia, and surroundings to convey meaning. English translation is our last resort. In every class, we have an interesting Indonesian story telling video or book to keep the students motivated to listen and talk about it. To make the classes interesting at all times, we squeeze language games in between lessons.

Who is the class best for?

Children age 4-13. Children this age are on the golden stage to learn a new language as they can learn the language effortlessly and almost without an accent.


Your teacher will assess your learning progress throughout your course through your speaking performance and language-related exercises. To make sure you’re ready for the next level, at the end of each level, you will also have a formal assessment of listening, vocabulary, and speaking.

What are the prerequisites?

There is no prerequisite for this course. For group classes, each student will be assessed to make sure they are on the same level.
