English and technology

At Sekolah Gunung Merapi, we want to empower our students to become innovators and entrepreneurs in the field of their choosing. We believe that by developing practical skills in spoken English and technology, our students can do just that.


  • we provide free courses in English for all ages, with a special focus on speaking and listening skills
  • we provide free to use IT facilities for any member of the community to use, with volunteers on-hand to assist users in developing new skills (starting September 2017)
  • host a weekly morning & evening “coffee and chat” event where members of the local community can drop-in to our centre to improve any of their professional skills in an informal and relaxed environment

Our students enjoying one of our English classes. Every class is designed to place special emphasis on engaged, hands-on learning with a focus on developing great listening and speaking skills.
