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.

The possibility to follow individual lessons, given by a young and enthusiastic team of teachers, the personal attention paid to all students and the quality and variety of the teaching materials were highly appreciated. During the lessons, teachers do not only pay attention to grammar and language theory, but also to the practical use of Indonesian in different situations. Because of the intensity and the quality of the lessons, it is possible to learn the (basics of the) Indonesian language in a relatively short period of time.
