If so, this Indonesian phrasebook is for you. It's tiny 0.4 x 4.1 x 5.9 inches size makes it incredibly convenient to travel with but without losing the most essential content for communication.
The idea of Instant Indonesian is simple—learn 100 words and phrases and say 1,000 things. The trick is knowing which 100 words to learn, but the authors Stuart Robson and Julian Millie have solved the problem, choosing only those words you'll hear again and again. Even with a vocabulary this small, you'll be surprised how quickly and fluently you too can communicate in Indonesian. Words are repeated in different combinations, building familiarity without effort. A brief guide to pronunciation allows the user to say the phrases correctly. Here's a sample of what you'll be able to do with this Indonesian phrasebook:
Ride the subway.
Order food and drinks.
And much more.
"A brilliant book for a beginner! 100 words are formally introduced (there's additional vocab at the end of the book) and examples given on how to use the words. While it takes time to digest and memorize all the words and their usage, the book is written in such a way that it does not intimidate the reader. A short introduction and commentary is also given on various important topics (e.g. culture, formal and informal behavior, etc)." —Goodreads
