Learn the lingo - An intro into Indonesian Bahasa

How many times have you gone on a holiday and kicked yourself for not learning the local
language before you arrived? It’s a small but meaningful gesture to be able to say “hello” and
“thank you” to those you encounter at your holiday destination.

Before you go is the best time to brush up on basic pleasantries. What’s more is that Bahasa Indonesia is a relatively easy language to learn.

Here is a quick-and-easy introduction to get you started:
