- what do you mean by OGG? if you mean the sound file of this site, it's not yet completed for Indonesian section, as the translation is not yet finished (i know, i'm working on it now... ^^). jeff would only let me upload the sound files after i finish them 100%

If you're looking for quick, basic Indonesian, I initially had very good success with the Pimsleur Indonesian. It goes through greetings, basic pronunciation, and simple dialogs such as discussing where people are from and asking directions.

I'm a big fan of Pimsleur because of the no-book method, so you can use them while working out or driving in a car. The biggest trick with Pimsleur is to find them at discount online bookstores, or as used sets for sale.

The Indonesian set is considered a "compact" set and runs for about 90$ retail. So to keep the prices down, look for a non-retail source and you'll save bundles. It's illegal in the US to copy the tapes and upload them, so you won't find them online.
