Publisher's Description

About Indonesian
  • Indonesian, also known as Bahasa Indonesia, is the official language of Indonesia.
  • Indonesia is a form of Malay, an Austronesian (or Malayo-Polynesian) language, which had been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries.
  • Standard Indonesian pronunciation, which is taught in this course, is based on the language of Jakarta.
  • Indonesian is spoken by nearly 35 million people as a first language and by 150 million people as a second language. It is also spoken in Thailand, East Timor, Sri Lanka, Africa, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Netherlands, and the US.
  • Besides Indonesian, there are over 300 local languages spoken in Indonesia, however, Indonesian is the primary language in education, government, business and communication.
  • Written Indonesian uses the Latin alphabet (like English), there are 26 letters.

Indonesian, Basic
  • New ten 30-minute lessons of spoken Indonesian language instruction (the first ten Units of Pimsleur's 30-Unit Indonesian Comprehensive Program), replaces the Compact Indonesian.
  • Essential grammar and vocabulary that teach you greetings, numbers, how to order food and drinks and to give and ask for directions. Learn to speak with near-native pronunciation.
  • No mindless repetition! Converse with native speakers in natural (and useful!) conversations.
  • Easy, fast, fun and effective language acquisition.
  • Completely Audio - anytime, anywhere. No computer necessary! Unlike expensive software programs which tie learners to a computer, Pimsleur courses are available in CD or mp3 format to meet your needs.
  • Receive an instant credit of $50 to trade up from the Basic to the full Level 1 Comprehensive.
