Thoroughly recommended to quickly develop practical language skills

As a former language teacher myself I have high expectations as a student. These were more than adequately met by the two teachers I had at Seminiak Language School. Their use of direct method teaching allows the student to pick up real and useful language. There’s also the back-up of translation as needed.
I’d be more than happy to return and further develop my Bahasa Indonesia skills. Also the administration is friendly and helpful.
Thoroughly recommended to anyone who wants to quickly develop practical language skills.

Two weeks and I already feel confident to speak

Two weeks filled with daily private lessons and I already felt confident to speak to Indonesian people. And what’s more: they understood me! So after that, I actually came home with the right groceries. 😉
Being a teacher myself in The Netherlands – I teach Dutch to foreign people – made me curious to see how other teachers do their jobs. Sitting at the other end of the table for once, gave me ideas and inspiration for my own lessons in the future.
Ater, my teacher, has a well structured teaching method which helped me to get all the grammar and words into my head. We spoke with each other around 75% of the time, which is, in my opinion, the only way to learn a new language properly. At the same time, we had interesting conversations about the Indonesian culture versus the culture of Western countries. That made my lessons even more interesting.
I would recommend the school to anyone who not only wants to get to know the language, but also the culture and the people of Indonesia.

Ater en zijn collega’s van de SLS maken studeren leuk!

Sampai nanti!


Excellent and super professional school

Ater and the overall school is excellent, and super professional. I learned the basics with Ater many years ago and now just back for more advanced studying of this fun language. He is an amazing teacher. The old adage that there are no bad students, only bad teachers is true in reverse here. When the teacher is excellent, he brings out the best in students. His patience, method, attention to the students and passion for teaching permeates in every lesson. This is much more than a regular boring school. I highly recommend Ater & this school as a beginner as it will quickly give you enough to converse in every day life and as an intermediate student to continue your learnings. I would not go anywhere else cause having been exposed myself to many teachers as a student, mom & sometimes teacher, Ater is one the rare pearls; a true educator!

Very reliable and long experience school

I highly recommend to learn bahasa Indonesia with Ater who takes the time to explains everything, and speak slowly.Very reliable as I never had any class cancelled. We can see that he already has long experience teaching, he anticipates the usual mistakes of learners. He can even translate vocabulary in French if student need.

It was possible to learn a new language in 1 month

Thank you to Seminyak language school. Especially Bu Rista who had the professional, experience and knowledge to excel my Bahasa Indonesia to reasonable level within a short month. Now I have the ability to read, write and have conversations on a basic level. The 2 hour session every week days, in the comfort of my home was jammed pack with current, useable everyday common speech. Who knew that’s it possible to learn a new language in a short period of time. Thanks again to Bu Rista

Really accommodating with schedule and fun

I just completed my 30 hours course. I did it across 4 weeks. I feel that I can have a conversation and I’m really happy about that. SLS was very accommodating with the class schedule and I had fun during the classes. I did my course in Canggu. I really recommend the school!

Bravo à SLS ! Le professeur pouvait parler français ce qui était parfait ! Je recommende grandement cette école.

Great Tutor

Found this school on internet. Teacher Rista great tutor. I had 4 hours, e.g. 2 sessions in the morning. I am able to read and order food in classic local warung that made my trip much easier. Went to local market bought food, no problem! Some locals considered me as local. I enjoy the local food and the price for local! Awesome!

Highly recommended

I am a Translator and i wanted to take classes to be able eventually add a third language to my business languages. the classes i have are fun and of high standard. You can make your time as challenging or as easy as you want . Mixing speaking, writing and listening with grammar, learning words and fun is a great way to learn a language. Highly recommended.


Recommend Seminyak Language School

I have completed two levels of indonesian at Seminyak Language School as i am running a restaurant in Bali. I started in a small class of six where i learnt all the basics and some very helpful information about indonesian culture. The second level gave me a lot more confidence and understanding of the language and the teacher always included things pertinent to working in restaurant. I would recommend Ater and the Seminyak Language School to anyone living in Bali for a better appreciation of Bali and its people.
