Learning Bahasa Indonesia in Bandung

Hi, I'm currently in Bandung, I was wondering if there are any schools or anything around here that offer bahasa Indonesia courses for foreigners. I've been learning some on my own but I think a course or tutor would help out a lot.

I looked into getting a social budaya Visa but I can't seem to find any schools in Bandung that would sponsor that Visa.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Yes there are language schools in Bandung who teach Bahasa Indonesia and they are there on google and YouTube. Why don't you contact the schools directly and ask how the other foreign students overcome this problem? Also I believe many foreigners learn Bahasa Indonesia (and many Indonesians learn English) through teachers on Skype, FaceTime etc.

Sorry I do not know any specific schools.

Major universities have BIPA (Indonesian languange for foreign speakers) programme. Try Balai Bahasa (languange center) UPI, Unpad, or ITB
