Everything You Need To Learn Sundanese

Sundanese is an Austronesian language, mostly spoken in the western part of Java (Indonesia). With around 40 million speakers, it’s one of the major languages spoken on this island.

Sundanese is closely related to Javanese, Madurese and Malay, and there is some degree of mutual intelligibility with all of them.
