Bahasa Indonesia - Things you need to know about Bali Travel - Language Basics
Bahasa Indonesia - Learn it the easy way!
Make the Locals Smile
Coming to another country that doesn't have English as its first language comes with a little bit of responsibility, for the customs, food and language.
In this mini book which is derived from Chapter 15 of the full edition, Things you need to know about Bali Travel, you will learn how to converse quickly. Use this in conjunction with the resources suggested, or your phrase book, and you will find that you are able to rapidly begin to understand and speak about common needs and subjects, no matter what your language ability.
Learning another language can be daunting, but the good thing about Bahasa Indonesia is that it is relatively easy to learn a few words. As your vocabulary grows, you will quickly understand that there is more to the language than meets the eye! Understand what pulls it together. Your skills and word bank will rapidly improve.
This book also includes a special section not included in the full version, which will be like a light being switched on! Ber-, meN-, peN-, ter- and per- words are the bread and butter of Bahasa Indonesia. We give you the quick reference list to know whether to add an r, n, ng, m, ny or other letter to make the root word make sense.
Once you have even a basic understanding of this, the language will become alive and your vocabulary has the potential to jump to new heights.
You will find this book useful whether you have no language ability at all, or just dabble with it when you are on holidays in Bali. It doesn’t matter if you want to go on to be fluent, or just converse and show respect for the locals of Indonesia.
When I began to learn Bahasa Indonesia, it began with a few words and phrases mixed with a little bit of Balinese. I then bought a CD and book and started to listen to conversations on my iPod. Some years on, my vocabulary is around 700 words and I would rate myself as a three year old in terms of language ability! However I can converse and be understood in many common situations.
What I didn’t know until a couple of years ago, and what I am sharing with you now, is that it is possible to accelerate learning. This mini-book is part of the full version of Things you need to know about Bali for those just wanting to give their language skills a bit of a boost.
At the special price of $6.99, Language Basics will be a valuable edition to your holiday, to help you get to know the locals better, have a few laughs, and bring a smile of gratitude to their already cheerful faces. Salamat balajar...happy learning!
