Is this really the best way to learn Indonesian?
Quite simply, YES! But if you've found another method, we'd love to see it. You see, it's a simple process of 'physical training', progressing step by step. You learn a few words, then another few while continuing to use all the previous words until they become 'second nature' and you never even made an effort to memorize any of them. In fact, thinking about it will often lead to mistakes and simply replying instinctively will almost always be correct, IF you've learned 'intuitively' and 'physically'.
We've designed the program so that each step builds on the previous step. And quite literally, you 'speak to learn Indonesian'. The physical process of speaking and practicing getting the proper pronunciation and intonation allows you to learn the language almost effortlessly.
Each of our learning packages are also designed to 'activate' what you're learning by having you do simple exercises. The physical action required in the exercises progressively stimulate an action which helps build and strengthen the neural connections which are being built. Again, this process makes the learning almost effortless.
You can see a sample of all the exercises in our beginner audio series Bob Saja (Just Bob). (Clicking will open the dialogue in a new tab and you can then work through the exercises.)
We also realize that an effective language learning program has to take several approaches in order for a student to completely learn and understand the material. Thus, there is a lot of overlap between the dialogues. When you see and hear a word or phrase that you 'sort of remember' in a new context, that's when it 'clicks' and gets locked in to your long term memory.
