I would recomment to find a language partner which can be difficult as few Germans would like to learn Indonesian language. A language is about communication and it involves at least two people and listening and speaking is an important part of it. If you learn a language alone, you will only be talking to yourself :)

It's definitely possible to self-study German! I have been self-studying and am currently around a B1 level. There are a lot of online resources specifically for German. If you haven't already, you should check out Deutsche Welle ( Duolingo and similar language-learning platforms are also good for German. Viel Glück!

I think it´s possible but you have to study hard, one hour every day, step by step. You can learn a lot, by reading easy german texts, watching cartoons, and also by taking some free lessons on the internet. That´s the way i started to learn last year how to speak German and Ich spreche nur ein bisschen Deutsh und ich mag sehr diese Spache.

It is possible but it will take time. If time is of the essence, it would be easier to just take a super-intensive class with say Goethe Institut. You'd be done in a matter of 8 weeks.

I have studied German alone for 10 months. It is actually faster, but you have to take it seriously. I reached the B1 level in around 5 months ;)
