To ensure consistency of standard, all our instructors are trained in the BAHASAGURU method. Delivered through our market tested BAHASAGURU-method, learning the Indonesian language is easy, fun-filled and a highly interactive experience for our students. The BAHASAGURU-method to language learning adopts a highly effective pedagogy that promotes learning and usage through applications. This pedagogy is founded on proven learning theories that include adult learning, behaviorism, cognitive learning, social learning and communicative theories. Through our BAHASAGURU-method, students are able to speak the Indonesian language from their very first lesson. Lessons are taught through a systematic curriculum designed by our Centre or customized to the client’s specific needs. Each lesson is properly structured with a lesson plan and incorporates a variety of teaching techniques such as pair-work, group work, audio-visual aids, and online reinforcement through the e-learning. Revisions are interjected at appropriate points to help students to recap and consolidate their learning.

All our instructors are native speakers of the Indonesian language. Being native Indonesians, our pool of instructors not only have a thorough command of the language, but also possess unique insights into the Indonesian culture and customs. These insights enable our instructors to teach the subtle nuances of the language that enhances the quality of our programs. This thus ensures that what our students learn from us is a practical, rather than textbook-type of language, which then helps them to connect better in business and social interactions.

Since our establishment, BAHASAGURU has provided our training services to numerous companies, government agencies and individuals from diverse professions and backgrounds. Our students include bankers, doctors, lawyers, academic professionals, business practitioners, law-enforcement officers, military officers, industry heads, senior government officials and officers from the diplomatic corps.
