Do you perhaps mean BINTAN Island?

If so the official language is Bahasa Indonesian, but English is spoken at resorts and hotels. Most islanders understand some English as well.

Bitam is a city in North Gabon

According to the Summer Institute of Linguistics, there are dozens of tribal languages in Gabon, with a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of speakers...BUT, the official language of the country is French(!) - see ethnologue.com/show_country....

I have no personal knowledge of the situation, but I'd say it likely that educated people there speak French, and people in travel speak French and English...

My apologies- it could have been a typo I thought.

Well, given that just today, someone posted a question about Dover, England, in the Dover Oregon (or wherever) forum, I wouldn't feel too badly about it ;-)

For myself, I hadn't a clue where Bitam was, so I clicked on it and found that the VT database thought it was in Gabon...I hope it is ;-)
