Learning the basics of the Balinese language

Video # 1 – Basic Words

Learning the basics of the Balinese language, Bahasa Indonesia, may seem daunting. But if you learn these words, it will help you get around Bali without looking like a lost tourist…

Learn a few new words and have fun using them!

If you’d like to see how these words are spelt visit my post on Before You Leave For Bali.

I’ll be uploading more videos soon for those language loving people, so keep tuned!

Video # 2 – Common Phrases

In this video I join the words up, and introduce new words to get you by in Bali. The locals are very appreciative of your efforts to speak Indonesian, and often will try to understand you even if you say it a bit wrong!

As this video is a little trickier to remember, I recommend picking one phrase and applying it in life as often as possible.

For example: Selamat Pagi for good morning. You could say this to your loved ones, your workmates or even your dog. The more you use it, the more natural it will be to say it in Bali.

Sampai Jumpa! or as we say it in Australia – see you later.
