Welcome to Indonesia! Indonesia is the home to approximately 240 million people, spread across more than 17,500 islands with at least 500 tribes, and more than 700 languages. With such diversity and a vast sea territory including many smaller islands, the Indonesian archipelago provides a rich and unique experience for you to explore. “Ladies and gentlemen, good morning... This is your opportunity,” said President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) in his speech during his first international diplomatic mission (APEC 2014). That pretty much reflects how we Indonesians want to open-up our country to you.


In the past there have only been a limited number of resources available that provide a comprehensive, easy to use introduction to Indonesian language, and many of those efforts by foreign authors and publishers lack native insights and local cultural knowledge. Practical Indonesian in a Week was designed primarily to achieve these goals. First, the book was written by two smart and experienced Indonesian native expatriate tutors. Second, the book was designed using a structure that will help you to quickly understand the basics of Indonesian language and culture with plenty of practical examples. It has the same structure as the best-selling foreign language learning books published by Kesaint Blanc: The Praktis 1 Minggu series.

It provides applicable information, useful vocabulary, practical conversation examples, daily grammar sections, and some exercises you can do to better understand the language.
