We have Moved!

The Indonesian Way has moved to http://indonesian-online.com

This is the best online language learning site I've ever seen -- and I discovered it just before I left Indonesia, after living there for 10 months. What a wonderful resource for all of us learners! (Shawn T. 2013)

The opportunities for learning and reinforcement are simply astounding, and quite frankly go far beyond what I have seen in any online textbook in the past. Even expensive off-the-shelf software such as The Rosetta Stone have not achieved the mix of practical language instruction with the various modalities that The Indonesian Way offers. (J. Brown, 2012)

Bahasa Indonesia (Language of Indonesia) is the native name of Indonesian. As testified by seventh century inscriptions, Indonesian (previously known as Bahasa Melayu (Malay), is not only a very old language, but it also belongs among the ten largest languages in the world.

Indonesia belongs to the fastest developing economies of the world, and is a major tourist destination, not only because the beautiful island of Bali, but also because of the ancient temples of Jawa, and the tribal cultures of Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and the islands of eastern Indonesia. All these are good reasons to study the Indonesian language.
