INDONESIAN LANGUAGE

Indonesian or Bahasa Indonesia, based on the Riau version of Malay language, was declared the official language in 1945 when Indonesia became independent.

Most Indonesians, apart from speaking Bahasa Indonesia, are often fluent in another regional language or local dialect, such as Minangkabau, Sundanese and Javanese that are commonly used at home and within the local community. Formal education, as well as nearly all national media and other forms of communication, are conducted in Bahasa Indonesia.

English is widely spoken in Indonesia, especially when conducting business and among the travel community.
