Learning Indonesian, or Bahasa Indonesia, is so much easier than learning  Asian languages such as Thai, Japanese and Chinese.  The first thing you will notice is that is has the Roman alphabet, so no new script to wrap your head around. Plus Indonesian has no tones, no gender and no tenses, so it just gets better and better.

It’ pretty similar to the language of its neighbour: Malaysia, Brunei, and Singapore, which makes it great value as a learner, especially as Indonesia is the fourth most populated nation in the world.
