About Us

In 1995, 16 people who were experienced as Indonesian language teachers for foreign nationals agreed to work together and establish an Indonesian language course in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Based on their proficiencies, even with very little start-up capital, the company was eventually founded on 29 April 1995. Puri Indonesian Language Plus was chosen to be the name. of the language course and a Cooperative, named as Koperasi Serba Usaha (KSU) Swaloka, was opted to be its legal entity. Officially, the legal status was given in October 1995, with certificate number No. 39/BH/KWK-12/X/1995.

In 2002, in line with the dynamics of the cooperation, the statute of KSU Swaloka was amended, with amendment certificate number No. 06/PAD/DP/XI/2002 given by Cooperative Service of Sleman Regency. In 2004, the name of the Indonesian language course was then changed to Alam Bahasa.

Learning Hours / Year



  • I spent two thoroughly enjoyable weeks studying Indonesian language at Alam Bahasa and going on some memorable field trips. All was very professionally organised and delivered. The communicative method of teaching was perfect! It really encouraged me to use the Indonesian language to express ideas and the combination of games, explanations and workbooks also gave me a deeper understanding of the language structure. I felt welcomed, cared for and I had so much fun!! Thank you all at Alam Bahasa.

  • I spent three weeks taking a 60-hour course at Alam Bahasa in April 2015. The teachers and staff at the language center were extremely helpful. The curriculum they used was well-designed and the teachers ensured that I progressed steadily. And one important thing was they made learning the language fun. I had so many laughs at classes and at the school during our weekly lunches. Even though classes were one-on-one, the center arranged gatherings for us to interact with other students. I was also taken to see the palace. It was truly a fun learning experience. I have been traveling in Indonesia the second half of this year and I feel a lot more confident in talking to people. Travels in the country have been very different since my language skills have improved. Thank you so much. Terima Kashi Banyak!!!

  • Please accept my thanks for a very enjoyable two weeks of study at Alam Bahasa Indonesia. The 60 hours of study were difficult for me, but very rewarding. I find that I can understand quite a bit of the TV sub-titles in Bahasa Indonesia in foreign films; I was also able to understand the information in the Qantas pesawat terbang coming home; at the bandara I was able to ask lots of people questions about my flight; I can give clear instructions to taxi drivers, comfortably go shopping and order food at restorans. I achieved my goal - to enjoy being with Indonesian people who do not have much Bahasa Inggris! The introduction to Me- and Ber- was very valuable and a big step in understanding." I will continue with Bahasa Indonesia and hope one day to return to Alam Bahasa Indonesia as a student.

  • My experience at the Alam Bahasa Indonesia school was excellent. The one-on-one personalized instruction by enthusiastic young professionals gave me the start I needed to feel comfortable speaking Indonesian. I came out of the two weeks of classes with them feeling energized and excited about talking Indonesian. Many of my staff at CIFOR have taken Indonesian language classes at Alam Bahasa and they all have had a great experience. I have no hesitations about recommending their program to anyone that might be interested.
