Making Out in Indonesian Phrasebook & Dictionary is a fun and accessible guide to Indonesian as it's spoken in real life.

Freshly written by Tim Hannigan, whose features and travel articles appear regularly in newspapers and magazines in Indonesia and beyond, this is your guide to modern spoken Indonesian as it is used in everyday interactions in Indonesian today—including many colorful, catchy expressions, Jakarta slang and informal phrases not found in any other phrasebook or traditional Indonesian language materials.

In addition to being an easy-to-use Indonesian phrasebook, it also includes an introduction to the Indonesian language as well as a pronunciation guide, topical notes on critical points of language and culture, and chapters based on typical real-life encounters with speakers of Indonesian, including:

  • Making acquaintances
  • Discussing likes and dislikes
  • Sharing a meal
  • Going out on the town
  • Developing a romantic relationship or quarreling—even through to having sex and getting married or splitting up!
