In a couple of weeks I will have 1 month of free time. I would like to use it for something meaningful.
And I thought that going to Bali to learn Indonesian would be a great idea (I already know some by self-study).
I thought it was a good idea but I also realise that being a tourist location may have some possible problems:
- Everyone knows English so why should they struggle using Indonesian?
- Everyone speaks Balinese instead of Indonesian
- Everything will be thus written down and explained using English or Balinese
- I will be one foreigner more, not very interesting to talk to.
So now I fear that I will be at Bali unable to find someone who would use Indonesian with me.
What would you think about this plan?
I am serious about learning the language, although I also have chosen Bali for obvious reasons (good landscapes, culture, etc).
Or there is other place you would recommend ?
