I have the impression that this course expects a lot of people wanting to learn Indonesian to be going to Bali. The pigs are very much used in the exercises. I thought most people in Indonesia are Muslims, so I guess there will not be any 'babi' to be found in most parts of Indonesia?

We still have them in the wild. And non-Muslims in the Muslim-majority regions still eat them.

Oh okay, thank you. I was also thinking that even though one does not eat an animal, one can still like them. As a muslim I don't eat pigs, but I find piglets adorable.
