Hi Johnson, I really enjoyed reading your post and the replies. I will be moving out to Surabaya in late December this year for 2+ years, but coming over for 5 weeks in September/October. Is there an English to Bahasa Indonesian book that I can purchase??? Or should I use my phone app to convert/pronounce on the speaker for me??? I like the idea of learning a few words a day. I have a very basic book but I was thinking more of a dictionary to construct sentences.... At least your post gives me more hope for learning survival language and hopefully more. I always thought I was pretty hopeless at retaining it but I will try as it would be nice to be able to communicate in the country I will live in for 2+ years... thanks.
