Cinta Bahasa is an education organization based in Bali, called a “Yayasan” in Indonesia, which puts it in the same class as other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Cinta Bahasa was founded on February 14th, 2011 by Yoshida Chandra and Stephen DeMeulenaere and registered as a Yayasan (Organization) under the name Yayasan Cinta Bahasa Indonesia.

Their name “Cinta Bahasa” comes from the phrase “Cintailah Bahasa Indonesia” which means “Love the Indonesian Language”. Their vision is to have a harmonious and integrated society between foreigners and Indonesians through regular interaction, sharing of ideas and experiences that communicated using Bahasa Indonesia. They strongly believe that good language education is the best way.

To enable and encourage communication using Bahasa Indonesia between foreigners and Indonesians, they use a variety of different means: providing language training ( crash course, beginner, private and online course) and translation/interpretation services. Also, activities and events which encourage foreigners and Indonesians to get to know each other and for foreigners become integrated better in Indonesian culture and society.

What makes them so different from any other school is our methodology for teaching the Indonesian Language to foreign learners. Unlike other schools in Indonesia, instead of overwhelming you at the beginning with grammar and awkward formal speech, at Cinta Bahasa you will learn the language that you will hear wherever you go in Indonesia. Of course, we do teach formal language if and when it is needed.

The results have been fantastic, with many students learning online from overseas and coming to learn with us at our school. We have two school locations :
UBUD Jl. Raya Sanggingan No.88, Kedewatan, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali 80571
SANUR : Jl. Tukad Anyar No.21/4, Sanur, Kec. Denpasar Sel., Kota Denpasar, Bali 80228
