Synopsis

This is a user–friendly and comprehensive beginning Indonesian textbook.

Divided into 28 graded lessons, Basic Indonesian provides fill-in-the-blank exercises, quizzes, word puzzles and question-and-answer practices to reinforce the learning. Extensive cultural notes are provided along with detailed tips on etiquette and appropriate cultural behavior in the world's largest Islamic society. It has been made to fill the need for a one–volume Indonesian course book which can be used for either self–study or classroom use by those who are keen to make a start on mastering the Indonesian language. The users might be students in universities or schools outside Indonesia, or expatriates living in Indonesia. The stories are set in Jakarta (apart from an excursion to Yohyakarta), are original and describe realistic situations, contain some interesting cultural sidelights, and display a lively mix of narrative and dialogue. To aid in understanding the nuances of the Indonesian language, chapters include clear Language notes, which, help explain the grammar and build a solid foundation for further steps forward in the study of Indonesian. Key features of Basic Indonesian are:
  • 28 graded lessons
  • Multiple types of accompanying exercises

  • Clear grammar and usage notes
