|How would you like to learn two languages (Malay and Indonesian) for the price of one? Just joking, of course as all the lessons here are completely free. In fact although this course is on the Malaysian language, anyone wishing to learn the Indonesian language could just as well start here and then look at the differences at the bottom of each lesson (not too many, at least for day-to-day conversations, I can assure you). So I intend to develop this course further and point out to you the most important differences with the Indonesian language as we go along.
As this is a basic course I am assuming, of course, that your aim in studying the Malaysian or Indonesian language from here is to be able to understand and to make yourself understood when you travel to those countries. If your study is of an academic nature then of course you will have to go through a proper school and attend regular classes and do practical exercises to gain proficiency.
To those of you who are more interested in learning Indonesian rather than Malay from here you still have to go through these 64 lessons in Basic Malay as much of the vocabulary and structure is common to both languages. However to facilitate their study I have highlighted all the differences between the two languages here (click to go). - Webmaster
