*Course description:*
This Indonesian language course will cover the essentials of the language,
including phonology (graphemes and allophones), syntax (grammatical
structure), and semantics (contextual meanings) with a lot of Indonesian
greetings discretely specific to Indonesian.  This course will spare enough
time to delve into scientific context of the language. On the whole, the
course is composed of 15 chapters covering dialogue (conversation),
grammatical structure, word formation, simple mathematic operation,
cultural notes, and vocabulary.

Indonesian, commonly called *Bahasa Indonesia* is almost exclusively
written in Latin script (Italy-based ancient Latium language covering
Latium and Rome) with a lot of influences currently coming from Arabic and
Dutch languages. The Dutch once penetrated Indonesia's common parlance and
law and judicial lingos (as still obvious up to now), following its almost
350-year era of colonization (1605-1945) over Indonesia. Nowadays, many
more foreign languages are increasingly penetrating Indonesian script,
especially the international *lingua franca* English. And in modern era,
Indonesian is deluged en masse by colloquial words of young people
intertwined with slangs derived from various ethic dialects equally shared
through media communications nationwide.

The very root of Indonesian is the Malayo-Polynesian language family from
which Malay Languages (*Bahasa Melayu*), which are spoken by people around
South East Asia as a *lingua* *franca,* came thereof.  Malay was later
taken over by Indonesia, Brunei, and Malaysia as their national languages.


Importantly, while Indonesian letter is simply read as is (like Latin
script) with constant sound and allophones, Filipino learners will
graphemically enjoy resemblant wording and writing system because of the
fact that some 3,200 root-words of the Tagalog-based Pilipino are taken
from or are similar to Indonesian words.
