Focused Learning for Fastest Results

Consulates, Embassies, Companies and International Organizations and Agencies prefer to send their staff to Ubud so that they can enjoy their stay in a beautiful and relaxing environment and stay focused while they are learning to speak Indonesian language.

Usually you will have 2 x two-hour classes per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, although this could be adjusted to 3 one-and-a-half or 2 hour classes per day, with breaks in between. You would also have two or three different teachers who will focus on strengthening different aspects of your language.

The learning location is ideally at our Main School in Ubud, but you may also choose to learn at our Branch School in Sanur.

  • Intensive class – Excellent teachers. No rote training. All customized to your needs and preferences.
    Gracious and pleasant – would recommend highly.

  • Although I didn't have much time loving my holiday study at Cinta Bahasa the teachers and staff were able to arrange a one week (very!) intensive course. While I had studied Bahasa before, it was great and very helpful to able to practice the language during the classes – and to get the confidence boost I needed to speak Bahasa with people in Bali.

  • Studying with Cinta Bahasa has been invaluable for my Indonesian language skills. The school's greatest asset is its enthusiastic, talented, professsional and friendly teachers. The school was flexible with my hours wich was very helpful. The intensive course has accelerated my ability to communicate in this country and set me up to futher improve into the future. Terima kasih banyak.
