Bob Saja is a simple dialogue introducing you to Indonesian, or Bahasa Indonesia. Phrases are repeated in a natural manner to help students learn naturally and intuitively.

Listen and read along focusing on the sound and the general idea which is fairly self-evident. The audio player will stay in view as you scroll down following the text. If you want to 'pause' or 'repeat' a sentence, it's very simple. Press 'Ctrl' for 'pause/play' and you can click on any text and the audio will play that line (and continue playing, unless you hit 'Ctrl' to pause it). Just one click is enough. No need to double click on the line you want to listen to. And you can repeat a line as often as you like to practice your own pronunciation. You can also use the 'slider' to 'slow down' and 'speed up' the video in order to practice speaking and listening.

There's no need to focus on every word and try to memorize anything. Relax and let it happen. After just one or 2 times listening and reading, go to the first exercise (click the next button) and you'll be surprised that you can already do it. Just remember, focus on the sound and don't 'think'.
(notice that definitions are provided for every new word, and try holding your mouse over the words in the dialogue.)
