Have you ever considered learning Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia), but were worried it would be too difficult? Don't let yourself be scared away! Indonesian has been called "the most accessible language there is". Indonesian has an uncomplicated system of grammar and vocabulary. Also, unlike some other Asian languages it has no tones and even uses the Roman alphabet. Add the fact that it is one of the most spoken languages in the world and the advantages of choosing to learn Indonesian become clear.

Perfect for business people or tourist traveling to Indonesia or for students who want to supplement their learning (and get an A in Indonesian!), this book's easy indexing feature allows it to act as an Indonesian phrasebook or as an Indonesian to English Dictionary / English to Indonesian Dictionary. A clever "point to" feature allows you to simply point to a phrase translated in Indonesian without the need to say a single word.
