BIPA Level 1, 2 and 3 Courses
We have developed a BIPA program and textbook specialized for learner-centered students. The 16-weeks regular programs are at the same level and at 240 hours period. Class days are from Monday to Friday and with a duration of 180 minutes per day. The language lecturers were trained at the prestigious universities and experienced in teaching foreigners.

After completing this course, students will be able to speak Indonesian in a higher level than those who have lived in Indonesia for more than 10 years and do not study in a regular course. Students can also translate to Indonesian at this level.
