Why learn Indonesian

Indonesian is spoken by more than 250 million people – ten times the Australian population – and is the language of our closest large neighbouring country, one that is likely to be in the top ten world economies before long. Not only is it spoken in Indonesia; it is also closely related to Malaysian. Indonesian is easier for English speakers to learn than some other Asian languages, using the same script as English.

Guides, online courses and tutorial resources

Online sources to look up words and phrases – a quick option is to run a Google search with the required expression in English followed by the words "in Indonesian", eg accommodation in Indonesian, then select from sources (some of which also provide an audio version of the Indonesian) such as the ones listed below (listed here alphabetically).
