Fluency delivers the highest quality of language teaching with flexible and attentive customer service.
How we teach
We know that an area of language acquisition that is often overlooked is natural speech. At Fluency, we teach you the nuts and bolts of grammar and vocabulary, then go beyond to include training in the nuances of the language as used by native speakers. You will develop a more natural flow that allows you to communicate with Indonesians smoothly and confidently.
What are the main challenges our students face when learning the language?
The main challenge is that it requires a different mind-set and an understanding of the cultural aspects of the language, too.
Learning a language to a high level of skill generally requires many hours outside the classroom to practice and be challenged in natural situations.
Focus of teaching at each level
Students who have excelled at the beginner level will be able to understand and use frequent expressions, communicate routine issues confidently and be able to describe themselves, background and simple interests. Passing the beginner level is a suitable goal for tourists and expatriates without the need to interact fluently in Indonesian in complex situations.
Knowledge and skill at the intermediate level provides a solid foundation for professional and natural communication in Indonesian. You will understand the main ideas of complex texts and abstract topics in areas or fields with which they are familiar. In conversation,you will be able to interact with others smoothly and have a high level of confidence with grammar, but may still miss nuances of native speakers. Achieving an intermediate level is a suitable goal for the majority of foreigners in Indonesia who will use the language regularly in social situations or familiar professional environments.
Finishing the advanced level will signal that you are capable of communicating accurately and confidently in virtually every situation and on all topics. You will approximate a native speaker in their ability to differentiate shades of meaning and in their spontaneity of communication. Passing this level is a suitable goal for students who have a need for working effectively in challenging business or diplomatic situations, or who have a longer term interest in staying in Indonesia.
