Indonesia has a wide geographical location, cultural diversity, historic sites, and different regional languages in each city. In education sector, Indonesia has succeeded conducting various collaborations with foreign universities and high demand for student exchange in every year. Therefore, Bahasa Indonesia needs to be learnt in order to build closer interactions and open wider opportunities.
