Why I am learning Indonesian

My sister went to Malaysia for a year and a half and is now fluent in Malay, and I want to be able to speak with her. I already know how good duolingo is because I am learning German, and I know Indonesian is very similar to Malay. I also have a friend who speaks Indonesian and his dad is from Indonesia, so I will be able to talk to him in Indonesian too. I am so excited to start learning!

Did she get fluent in one and a half years? Was she doing anything to learn prior, or did she just pick it up while she was over there.

She did a few weeks of studying beforehand, but she learned most of it from just being there.

I learning to speak it because I have met someone I like that speaks it and want to be able to communicate, or a least relate.
