The level of english in indonesia is not the best but it is possible to communicate with almost everybody. The local language is easy to learn. I would recommend everyone to take a language course.

Although the language is not difficult to learn, I chose not to. The english skills of most people are poor. If you have to work on an assignment with a local student be prepared to rewrite his /her whole part, whereas it will be full of mistakes.
