Dili institute technology - tetun language courses
We have seen people arrive in timor with no knowledge of tetun, who after doing a few weeks/months of these courses can communicate adequately with the locals.  Highly reccomend it!
They also sell language books; the English/Tetun dictionary which is really useful!
and the Peace corps Tetun language course book, which we also highly reccomend.  We have found these two books very useful in helping us to improve in speaking and understanding Tetun.
