About Me
italki teacher since Nov 6, 2022
Interest topicSports & FitnessTravelHistory
As a son of a Balinese tour guide, I love sharing the folklore, language, culture, and traditions from Bali, Indonesia. I’m earning a degree to teach Mandarin to international students at a Chinese university. In 2021, I participated in the US State Department's YES Program for cultural exchange and leadership. In 2022, I spent the summer visiting my AFS host family from the YES Program. Each day, I use Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Bali, English and Chinese (Mandarin). I love learning languages and am dedicating my life to teaching languages in order to understand the cultural diversity. I enjoy life-long learning through traveling, and volunteering in social and cultural activities.

Dena is the best teacher ever. I love his teaching style. He listens intently and displays calm and patience in his instruction. He always shares unique insights into Indonesian culture and language. The time I spend with him is productive, exciting, and enjoyable. My Indonesian has improved dramatically since he has been my instructor. He truly is an amazing guy and teacher! He deserves a rating higher than 5 stars!

Dena told stories about Bali and Indonesia to make me feel like I was there, using the language with him. He provided background on when to use formal and informal phrases so that I would sound like a native. He patiently repeated the phrases until I sounded like a local. He asked about my learning style and adjusted as we went along to suit my learning needs. He was so knowledgeable about the language and customs. that I immediately signed up for a package because I can't wait to have more lessons with him! I didn't know language learning could be so much fun!

The structure is very good, starting from the basics of pronouncing vowels. To then learning basic words and phrases. Very friendly and patient teacher.

Thank you Dena for today’s lesson. I had a very enjoyable and enriching time. I love how Dena gave me space to ask questions about Indonesian politics and culture. As we conversed, I have improved in my language ability as well as my general knowledge.
