Roamindonesia has added a Language Guide page to the site. The page is designed to assist travellers to learn the basics of Bahasa Indonesia. It is easy when staying in the more popular destinations such as Bali to think all Indonesians speak English. This is not the case. Away from the major tourist centres some people may speak a few words of English or in many cases none at all. We appreciate as tourists how much easier it is to be able to speak a few words of Bahasa Indonesia and we note the locals certainly appreciate that an effort has been made to speak their language.
The page contains translation basics which can be downloaded in a PDF as well as links to other language resources.
