Online Indonesian Course

Jembatan Bahasa’s online Indonesian course is specifically designed for people who want to learn Indonesian from the comfort of home. With the support of experienced Indonesian teachers, effective teaching methods, and extensive learning resources, you will learn Indonesian the fastest way possible. 

How It Works 

You will study on a regular schedule with a professional Indonesian teacher via Zoom or Google Meet. You can contact the teacher anytime if you have any questions regarding Indonesian language and culture. We will also give listening exercises to boost your language acquisition outside of class.

Proficiency Level

We can help you speak Indonesian from scratch or start from your current level. At Jembatan Bahasa Indonesian Language School, we have adapted the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) as our guideline. We have six levels which correspond to the CEFR framework.

If you have learned Indonesian before, we will asses your level on your first class to make sure you take the right course. We also conduct assessments to monitor your language learning progress and to see if you're ready to move to the next level.

Activities in Online Indonesian Class

We believe that learning Bahasa Indonesia has to be fun and effective. In class, your teachers will speak the target language at all times to expose you to the language as much as possible. We always adjust our speaking based on your level and the topics you’ve learned. We do use English to explain grammar rules and culture-related topics. We want to make sure that you understand the structures of the language and use the language appropriately.

Some activities that you will do during your lessons include but not limited to:

  • Real life conversation practice 
  • Putting words in contexts
  • Reading activities 
  • Role play based on real-life scenarios 
  • Communicative language games
  • Discussing topics in conversations and reading texts
  • Watching videos and reaction discussions
  • Reacting to phenomena, news, pictures given
  • Story-telling
