Indonesian Beginners Listening Exercises and Materials (e-book)
About the Materials
Drawing from the experiences of its author, the book aims to serve the need for comprehensive Indonesian listening materials. Throughout his experience in teaching Indonesian as second language, the author realised that many of his students are already proficient in reading, writing and speaking but somehow lack greatly in listening. With this in mind, he decided to create a set of materials that focuses mainly on Indonesian listening for all levels (starting from beginners).
Who is this for?
– People who have had from 2 to 10 hours worth of training in beginners level,
– People who are using any self-study method available for the Indonesian language,
– Upper beginner to intermediate learners who would like to further improve their listening skills,
– Anyone who are passionate about Indonesia and their language.
What is included?
– MP3 files (80 tracks -2 hours & 34 minutes)
– PDF copy of the e-book with 20 chapters (80 pages) in total
– Access to each chapter’s Quizlet™
– Answer Key, Glossary & Transcript

Note: ILC does not recommend any user to use this e-book as their primary learning material for Indonesian. This e-book should only be taken as a support material.
Yes, you can. Our first and twelfth chapter are available for FREE! The first chapter is suitable for any learners who have learned Indonesian for at least 2 hours, whether it’s by self-study or in class. The twelfth chapter is suitable for any learners who have learned Indonesian for more than 10 hours.
All of the exercises in our materials are focused on helping you listen better. Our target is to serve the huge need for decent listening materials for Indonesian learners of all levels including Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Advanced and Colloquial.
ILC believes that whilst there are many Indonesian learning resources available, there is still a huge need for materials that are solely designed to build learner’s listening skills. Many students have learned Indonesian for years but still struggle with listening. Not to mention that Indonesian conversation tend to vary quite differently to its written form. It is our aim to bridge that gap and help you listen better.
The vocabularies used in each of the exercises will build up progressively. New words will be introduced in each chapters but they are all relevant to the topics.
For you who have been exposed to the Indonesian language, you might realise that Indonesians tend to add words that do not seem to belong in that particular sentence. Although we fully acknowledge that such is the case, the vocabularies that are used ILC’s materials are chosen carefully to suit the level of the students. You will surely find new words here and there but we also provide supports in knowing the words beforehand by using other platform such as quizlet (link) or by adding word familiarisation exercises before going deeper.
As the level increases, the expectation will then increase. However, we also remember that knowing how the words look like does not mean that learners will automatically know how it will sound like and that is why we are here!
You can find some words that are used in each chapter below:
bahasa, bapak, berbicara, berlibur, bisa, dan, dari, dia, juga, saya, sekarang, tapi, teman, and many more…
adik, anak, apa, atau, bahasa, berbicara, bisa, dia, juga, nama, orang, sedikit, tapi, tinggal and many more…
ada, belum, beberapa, bermain, di luar, harus, jalan, kecil, kedua, kenapa, kurang, minum, yang mana and many more…
baru, beli, besar, gratis, hadiah, harga, kurang lebih, permisi, setengah, tas, toko, yang mana and many more…
To ensure (almost) complete understanding of the speeches in the materials, we provide essential grammar supports in the materials wherever necessary. Many of you might have learned Indonesian from somewhere else and we know that.
However, we do not want to assume that everyone understands the Indonesian grammar completely. Therefore, in the materials you will find some boxes with explanations that are aimed to help you understand better (or as a mere refreshment for you). A bit of insight is better than nothing.
