My name is Arimbi Mardilla Ashany, and you are welcome to call me Bea. I am the founder of Luminara Language. Pleasure to e-meet you!

Brief History

Luminara launched in August 2021 as I was going through major changes in my health and I wished to be able to continue realizing my vision in a sustainable way. For the most part, Luminara had been conceived for quite some time and is therefore the result of my life experiences.

I spent most of my early years and childhood in the USA and returned to Indonesia before I turned 10 years old. At one point, I was overcome with the desire to become an English teacher. Luminara was then eventually birthed as the ultimate expression of my efforts to achieve my vision of empowering people through language education. I also wish to do this by humanizing the learning process and taking into account our life and issues in the world today.

Throughout the years, however, I was not always focused on this particular interest. I studied Management at Universitas Padjadjaran and have gained corporate, education consulting, translation, and teaching experience since 2008. However, my persistent passion for the TESOL field led me to pursue a Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics (TESOL Studies) at The University of Queensland in 2018-2019. I was also fortunate to have been supported by Australia Awards Scholarships for my studies.  All these experiences laid the foundation and provided the breakthroughs that helped me bring my visions to life my visions through Luminara. My experience of over 10 years in teaching English and in the translation industry has enabled me to do this and provide quality services and results. 

Vision & Mission

At Luminara, we aim to provide engaging and impactful language courses and programs for Indonesians and also quality translation/editing services, by taking advantage of the team’s expertise and extensive experience. We endeavor to design and tailor the programs, courses, and services to cater to the needs of our learners and clients, with regards to their unique goals and needs whenever possible. 

We also share valuable knowledge and insights from our academic, professional, and scholarship application experiences. We also strive to constantly learn and improve, to strengthen our expertise to continue providing better solutions. In the future, we may expand our venture to other languages and services. 

We envision Indonesians being empowered, having their language proficiency and communication skills boosted and their potential developed, and ultimately becoming competent and kind-hearted global citizens.

Finally, we are excited to embark on this journey with you!

We hope you will be enlightened, enjoy the journey, and succeed in all of your language endeavors!

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
