The Exciting Way to Learn Indonesian Language is Nowhere but Here!
We started our Indonesian language (bahasa Indonesia) course, Puri Indonesian Language Plus in April 1995. In a home-like atmosphere we welcomed every student to be part of our Indonesian family, accompanied them to practice Indonesian language (bahasa Indonesia) and touch the culture. Puri (literally means a palace) referred to a beautiful house whose home-like atmosphere accommodated the language learning process in family hospitality. The ‘house’ has rapidly developed into a real “education center” since then.
The classroom activities are presented in the frame of the Direct Method, which is based on the Communicative Approach toward language teaching and learning. Using the Direct Method, we help learners to identify concepts and expressions. Thus, they are able to speak as naturally as Indonesian people do. This way, the language items presented are treated as a communication means instead of soul-less linguistic building.
We have become a multi language center where foreigners/expats from many countries can learn the Indonesian language (bahasa Indonesia) as well as the Indonesian culture and local language and where Indonesian nationals can learn foreign languages in the same atmosphere. We are moving fast with our business which is not just limited to the language training but culture and traveling. We have a new soul, a new spirit for the new challenge. Everything is the same: the owners, teachers, and staff but the name and spirit.
Now we are introducing the new spirit. It means everything is plus, much more than just marginal. The atmosphere is not just like a home but as rich as Indonesian nature (nature = alam-Ind). The opportunity is there to experience (mengalami-Ind) the culture instead of just to touch it.
Alam Bahasa provides the language courses not only to be conducted in Yogyakarta, but also in other cities in Indonesia, among others Jakarta, Bogor, Bandung, Bali, Surabaya, Aceh, Sorowako, Manado, Papua and Tapanuli. E-learning has also been preferred by the students to learn the Indonesian language with Alam Bahasa.
We have spread our wings to the nature and no house walls can stop us to go bigger, higher, and faster.
