Die Sprachführer der Kauderwelsch-Reihe orientieren sich am typischen Reisealltag und vermitteln auf anregende Weise das nötige Rüstzeug, um ohne lästige Büffelei möglichst schnell mit dem Sprechen beginnen zu können, wenn auch vielleicht nicht immer druckreif. Besonders hilfreich ist hierbei die Wort-für-Wort-Übersetzung, die es ermöglicht, mit einem Blick die Struktur und "Denkweise" der jeweiligen Sprache zu durchschauen.

Wie jeder Reisende weiß, reichen schon wenige Kenntnisse einer Sprache aus, um mit den Menschen in näheren Kontakt zu kommen, zur richtigen Zeit zum richtigen Ort zu gelangen oder landesübliche Preise zu bezahlen. Wer nach Indonesien fährt, wird feststellen, dass außerhalb der Touristenzentren kaum noch Englisch gesprochen wird und sich der englische Wortschatz mit einem freundlichen "Hello Mister" schnell erschöpft. In diesen Gegenden ist es darum ratsam, wenigstens ein minimal der Sprache zu beherrschen, wenn guy nicht stumm vor seinem Gegenüber stehen will. Da in Indonesien Hunderte von Sprachen und Dialekten nebeneinander existieren, versucht dieser Sprechführer, dem Reisenden die nationale Sprache Bahasa Indonésia näherzubringen, mit der guy sich in jeder zone verständigen kann. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt nicht auf der Vermittlung komplizierter Grammatikregeln, sondern auf dem Kommunikationsteil. Wichtig ist v. a., dass guy versteht und verstanden wird, weniger dass ein Satz grammatikalisch einwandfrei ist. Ergänzt wird diese Sprachhilfe durch interessante Hinweise auf Land und Leute, so dass guy ganz nebenbei auch Wissenswertes über die indonesische Kultur erfährt.

Mit hyperlinks zu Hörbeispielen mit denen guy sich ausgewählte Sätze und Redewendungen aus dem Buch anhören kann. Umfangreicheres Tonmaterial ist unter dem Titel Kauderwelsch Aussprachetrainer Indonesisch separat auf CD oder als obtain erhältlich.
