Wow - what a wonderful two weeks it has been! I am so grateful I had the opportunity to study at your school! In just two weeks I have gone from knowing just a few words and basic phrases, to being able to have simple conversations. It was a great balance of feeling challenged and pushed while knowing that you supported me. I also appreciated learning more about how Indonesian language and culture and intertwined. I feel much more confident - and competent! You have given me such a strong foundation, and I look forward to building on that...you made me love this language, and you’ve motivated me to continue learning. If I have the opportunity to take additional classes, I will definitely choose you! I can’t imagine that any other school is as attentive, experienced, and as good-humoured as you are. Not only all of that, but you have a space that feels like home on one of the most beautiful islands. What more could a person want?!


Fluency has been an excellent place to learn Bahasa Indonesia. The one-on-one with my teacher was excellent, her patience amazing...I look forward to my return and learning more. Oh and the school lunches were a feast everyday - yum!


My experience at Fluency has been a rewarding and happy time - an outstanding learning experience. The school is professional in all ways, but as much as this is important I also enjoyed the personal way the lessons were structured for individual learning. The learning was enhanced by having different teachers all with different personalities and ways of teaching. I enjoyed the interaction with them and learning about their lives. I also appreciated being so well looked-after, like a family member...I would have no hesitation recommending the school and look forward to returning for more tuition.

I can only give Fluency my highest recommendation. Not only have their great teachers and staff managed to teach me Bahasa Indonesia, they’ve also made it an enjoyable experience.


I only wish I had more time to stay and continue to learn more Bahasa Indonesia. Your school is extremely professional and well organised. I could not have asked for a better experience.

You’ve done an excellent job these past two weeks helping improve my Bahasa Indonesia. Yes - I’d highly recommend your program to language learners of any level and will proudly advertise to those I meet seeking professional training in Bahasa Indonesia. You are all wonderful people with much talent, drive and passion.


I am very glad to have spent three weeks at Fluency as it felt like home. I was happy to wake up in the morning and attend class and spend time with the people working there. Everyone has been extremely friendly and helpful because they wanted to make sure my experience there would be satisfying and rewarding...I will definitely return to Fluency on my return to Lombok.
