Making Out in Indonesian is a fun, accessible and thorough guide to Indonesian as it's really spoken. It has been updated and expanded to be even more helpful as a guide to modern colloquial Indonesian for use in everyday informal interactions-giving access to the sort of catchy expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials.

It includes an introduction to the Indonesian language as well as a pronunciation guide, topical notes throughout on key points of language and culture, and chapters based on typical real-life encounters with speakers of Indonesian, including:

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