Level of Indonesian and English fluency: Beginner to Intermediate

Starting in March 2021, we have added a beginner-intermediate section. The stories are based on true events that are read by our host in both Indonesian and English. 

As this is a beginner’s section, the vocabularies are kept at a basic level, with a few more advanced ones mixed in to maintain the originality of the story. We believe this will also help people to learn the language a bit faster.

The Indonesian language used here is mostly in the daily-conversation format, that has influences from the local culture and custom. Should you have questions on the more formal version, please consult with your guru Bahasa Indonesia.

Semoga menikmati.
