We have now received a number of posts which have warned us that a school called Global Bahasa is behaving very similarly to the former Rumah Bahasa. There are lavish promises of teaching excellence and wonderful customer care, but then courses are endlessly delayed. The customer below registered in January but still hasn’t been notified when his course is going to start in mid-March. We strongly advise people to avoid Rumah Bahasa, Language and Beyond, and Global Bahasa, all of which are unreliable businesses which don’t deliver on their promises. They have already left a long string of disappointed and angry customers behind them. A better choice would be established businesses like LIA, Wall Street or Direct English, who have been established in Indonesia for many years. Here is the full text of the complaint from the latest Global Bahasa victim:
Saya mendaftar di Global Bahasa. Apa ini sama dengan Rumah Bahasa? Modusnya hampir sama. Saya udah duluan daftar pertengahan January 2015, tapi sampai sekarang belum ada kejelasan kapan kursus tersebut dimulai. Waktu daftar pertama awal Februari tetapi pas 6 Februari sata telepon di undur 1 Maret. Sekarang udah 15 Maret belum ada penjelasan. Apa ini sudah penipuan belum ya dengan midel begitu. Mau jumpa sama sales katanya masih di bndg.
