Testimonials

I've just completed three weeks one-to-one (90 hours) with Alam in Yogya, March 2011, and have to say I have been entirely impressed. They are a thoroughly professional and well-run organisation with an extremely high standard of teaching, great admin/facilities/attention to detail and lovely people to boot. Some nice extras thrown-in like the field trips (Borobodur, Gunung Merapi etc), batik/Javanese dance/Indonesian cookery courses (beef rendang - enak enak!), airport pick-up/drop-off and Thursday lunches. In summary: excellent in all aspects. I struggle to see how this school could have been any better and give it a massive thumbs up. For anyone needing accommodation nearby, I can also recommend Heru Homestay, within walking distance of the school, which can be organised either through the school or directly with Ibu Heru. If anyone would like further info I can be contacted on the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree forum as Standanista.
