Services and rates



Indonesia Specialist is proud to be offering a new product: tailor-made Indonesian language courses that are taught online. Learn Indonesian in the convenient setting of your own company or home, at a time that suits you best. Our language tutors all hold a degree in Indonesian Studies or are native speakers of Indonesian; most tutors also have a decade of experience teaching language and acculturation courses in an offline setting.

Using a range of teaching materials and a unique teaching formula, our online courses are designed for business people and members of the general public who want to learn Indonesian or improve their Indonesian language skills. Though our unique approach means that courses are tailor-made to the requirements of each individual student, courses generally consist of written teaching material, interactive exercises, and several online language classes taught by two different teachers. Separate acculturation courses can be arranged on request, and acculturation modules can be built into a language course. Prices range between £35/hour and £50/hour. Please contact us at for more information.


A major advantage of our online Indonesian language courses is that courses can be organized at a time that suits your company and your employee best. In addition, courses can be arranged regardless of the location in which your company or employee is based. The course material can be adapted to focus on words and phrases that your employees are likely to encounter in their communications with your Indonesian business partner, or centre on particular situations that your employees are likely to encounter.

For corporate one-on-one or group courses in London or the Kent area, please contact us at or click here. Learning Indonesian through our online and ‘live’ language and acculturation courses will give your employee and your company a head start in all dealings with your Indonesian business partner.
