That's the reason for this book which is designed especially for travelers to Indonesia and Malaysia. The emphasis is on effective communication, not grammar rules or tourist phrases. It is organized to be as simple, concise, and useful as possibly. With this book and a few hours of practice you can start communicating in Indonesian or Malay.

The main focus of the book is Indonesia and Indonesian. However, since Malay is very closely related language, you will be able to make use of it quite effectively in both countries. The book itself is written with Indonesia and Bahasa Indonesia in mind. When necessary, the text is market and an appendix is included to make conversion to Malay a painless, easy step. If you pass from Indonesia into Malaysia, or vice versa, just refer to this appendix and to the glossary. Key features of Practical Indonesian Phrasebook are:
  • Very compact travel size.
  • Hundreds of useful Indonesian words and phrases.
  • Arranged by topic and situation for easy use.
  • Indonesian grammar, pronunciation and body–language guides.
