Indonesian Immersion Program

One of the best ways to learn Indonesian is by immersing yourself into the language and the culture of Indonesian people. In this Indonesian immersion program, you will be exposed to the language 24 hours in a natural, everyday setting. Your classes will be a combination of Indonesian lessons with our professional instructors and cultural exploration to practice the language in a real-life situation as well as deepen your understanding of Indonesian culture.

We provide an option for you to choose between a one to four weeks immersion program. Below is the schedule.

Instructors

The class sessions will be handled by our professional Indonesian teachers. You can read about their profiles here.

For culture activities, we work with talented Indonesian artists who have experience in their fields. All instructions will be mostly in Indonesian, and they will be adjusted according to your Indonesian proficiency level.

Accommodation & Meals

We are based in Jalan Subak Daksina, Tibubeneng, away from the touristy/business area, but the beach is only 11 minutes away. Most residents here are local Balinese and other Indonesians from across the country so it’s a great place to find an accommodation that is within walking distance from Jembatan Bahasa. Various restaurants, from a vegetarian one to a meat lover, are available in the area.

Three minutes drive from our office, there is a vast local residence called Perumahan Pengending Permai where English almost completely disappears. For maximum exposure to the language, this is the perfect location.
