Dony started teaching Indonesian to foreigners while working toward his Bachelor’s in English Language and Literature at Universitas Udayana. His experiences as a student peer, interpreter, and Indonesian instructor for international students at Udayana enabled him to further explore his lifelong passion for second language learning. Before he started to teach Indonesian Language at Cinta Bahasa, he was an Indonesian instructor at a university-level study abroad program as well as an English lecturer in hospitality vocational college. Though he mainly spends his time teaching in the classroom, he is also such an outdoorsy person. He enjoys travelling, hiking, mount climbing, and engaging with different people and culture.
