Wisma also allows for teachers to come to your accommodation in the one on one tutor programs.

Loved it!
I studied at Wisma Bahasa for four weeks in 2017. The teachers were fantastic; you get to study with different gurus each day. I loved the 1-on-1 learning style and the balance between the structured program and having freedom to focus on what's most important for you. I went on a field trip to Borobudur and had a cooking class as well. They were very accommodating of my shellfish allergy and it helped me understand more about what I should or should not eat. Depending on your budget it might be a little on the expensive side, but I found my skills progressed very quickly so would absolutely recommend.
