1 Hi and welcome to Bintang Bahasa. Selamat datang di Bintang Bahasa. My name s Brian and my friend s name is Pak Keban. Nama saya Pak Keban. In this audio we ll learn some basic words and I ll describe our method for learning Indonesian. Many of you may already know some words, but this will still be a good review and you can focus on improving your pronunciation. For example, the word selamat, which basically means safe but is used in many greetings, like: welcome selamat datang good morning selamat pagi good day selamat siang (used from about 11am till 3pm) good afternoon selamat sore (used from about 3pm till evening) good evening selamat malam And for good night, they also say selamat malam. It s used for greeting and farewell. You can also say selamat jalan to someone who is leaving, and they can reply selamat tinggal to the person staying. Perhaps you know the word jalan which means road and a common reply to the common question () is Jalan-jalan. (Going around.). And in fact, they re not really asking you where you re going, it s just a greeting, so if you start to tell them exactly where you re going, it will be a bit strange. If it s someone you know, then you could say generally where you re going, for example, Mau ke mall. (I m going to the mall.), Mau ke kantor. (I m going to my office.) And notice that the word pergi (going) is usually not used, they simply use want to (mau ke) to express the idea going to. So, once again, you say selamat jalan to someone who is leaving, and they can reply selamat tinggal to the person staying. The word tinggal means to live or to stay and also to leave something where it is. The common expression to say to someone going to bed or going to sleep is Selamat tidur. ( Have a nice sleep. or Sleep well. ) Obviously, the tidur means to sleep. And make sure you roll the r. tidur And when you say selamat, don t say se-la-mat. It s closer to slamat. This is common for words that have el after the first letter. The e is essentially silent and you go straight into the L. selamat ga safe to study, learn to go out, leave; exit Let s go over the greetings again and focus on getting the pronunciation right. welcome selamat datang good morning selamat pagi good day selamat siang (used from about 11am till 3pm) good afternoon selamat sore (used from about 3pm till evening) good evening selamat malam Learn Indonesian Audio Series 01 BintangBahasa.com Page 1 of 7

2 good-bye (to someone leaving) selamat jalan and they can reply selamat tinggal Have a nice sleep. or Sleep well. Selamat tidur. It s actually very simple to learn the basics of Indonesian, if you take the right approach. If you start trying to learn formal Indonesian, all the prefixes and suffixes, then you ll definitely have a LOT of difficulty, and you will likely never learn to speak Indonesian naturally, the way it is spoken every day by the locals. Basically, you just have to remember the words and use them in the same way Indonesians use them. Simply focus on the sound and rhythm, and the word order and emphasis, and copy what you hear. Like the expression, () Pay close attention to the intonation and try and match it. And the word mau (want) is super useful and common. And it s used in the answer as well as the question. For example, Mau? (Do you want this? / Do you want to? / etc. depending on the situation) Mau. (Yes.) The main philosophy of our programs for learning languages, is that language learning is a physical process. You simply have to do it, to learn it. You don t learn to speak Indonesian, you speak to learn Indonesian. The simple process of speaking out loud, copying the audio, will develop the physical ability to make the sounds, and you will learn the words and how to use them at the same time. We have several dialogues that start your very first words in Indonesian, and perhaps the most effective and most popular one is Bob Saja (Just Bob). The word saja (only, just) is very common, and it s common to drop the letter s and simply say aja. The Bob Saja dialogue introduces 29 words, lots of repetition in a natural dialogue. Each subsequent dialogue introduces about new words. It s important to keep the new words to a minimum and to use the previously introduced words as often as possible. We have another beginner series called Apa ini? Apa itu? (What s this? What s that?). It again starts your very first word in Indonesian and gives you lots of practice using ini (this), itu (that) and sini (here) and sana (there). And we keep it simple, just 3 objects: buku (a book), majalah (a magazine) and koran (a newspaper). When you start lessons a teacher, you begin by simply reading these dialogues and the teacher will help you your pronunciation. By reading dialogues, you maximize the time speaking to learn. Remember, it s the physical action of speaking that allows you to learn the language. Doing this will also avoid mistakes that commonly result from thinking and relating it to your own language. For example, at the beginning of this audio, I said My name is Brian. and Pak Keban said, Nama saya Pak Keban. Rather than explain the rule of possession and having you try and remember it, it s much more effective to simply use it many times in the dialogues. teman saya my friend After just one lesson you will have mastered this rule and will never make a mistake. Conversely, we had a student who studied intensively in Australia before taking lessons us in Jakarta, and she repeatedly said saya suami (my husband) instead of suami saya. If you learn physically, then you will never make such a mistake. Learn Indonesian Audio Series 01 BintangBahasa.com Page 2 of 7

3 The fastest way to learn Indonesian is to get our learning packages and work through them. The exercises will help activate your abilities. Again, it s a physical process. Passive listening is only part of the solution. Having a teacher then super charges your learning because it s interactive. For example, during a first lesson an absolute beginner, the teacher can set up the room a book (buku), a magazine (majalah) and a newspaper (koran), and place them close by, here (sini) and further away, there (sana). You can then practice as much as you need. It s also useful to interchange the Apa ini? Apa itu? (What s this? What s that?) questions Siapa ini? Siapa itu? (Who s this? Who s that?) Going back and forth between these and other questions or expressions is what allows your brain to absorb what you re learning. You have to have this back and forth repetition because most of us will forget seconds after being told. And in this regard, it really is a physical process. You are developing new synaptic links in your brain and the repeated firing of the neurons is what builds the link which then becomes a permanent, long term memory. There s a lot of additional material for self-study including our 10 Words a Day series. This may not seem like much, especially when you learn about 50 words in your first lesson, but trust me, they add up and unless you re really diligent your studying you ll have to pause every once in a while and finish absorbing the words introduced to that point. It s a bit like cooking a nice sauce. It takes time and you have to let it simmer in order to bring out the full flavour. Likewise language learning. You may often feel like you ve hit a wall and aren t progressing. No problem. Let it simmer and continue going over material that you know in order to strengthen those synaptic links and prepare yourself for jumping over that wall and reaching a new level. We also have an audio series that introduces 10 Words per Page. This is a popular series but progresses very quickly so you generally need to go over the other material before progressing a new audio in that series. With this audio series, we ll take a more relaxed pace and go over different words and expressions in more detail before moving on. Of course you ll still likely need to use the other material in order to get the necessary physical practice speaking and listening to only Indonesian. As this series progresses we ll use more and more Indonesian as Pak Keban and I discuss language learning in general and details of Indonesian and English expressions. Let s see if you remember the greetings. No problem if you don t remember them all, or even any. It s completely natural to forget everything and it needs the physical practice to lock it in. welcome selamat datang good morning selamat pagi good day selamat siang (used from about 11am till 3pm) good afternoon selamat sore (used from about 3pm till evening) good evening selamat malam good-bye (to someone leaving) selamat jalan and they can reply selamat tinggal Have a nice sleep. or Sleep well. Selamat tidur. And do you remember the Indonesian words for who, what, where? siapa, apa, mana How about this and that? ini, itu And how about these: book magazine newspaper name husband my husband buku majalah koran nama suami suami saya Learn Indonesian Audio Series 01 BintangBahasa.com Page 3 of 7

4 And how about here and there? sini, sana (Just) Going around. Jalan-jalan. / Jalan-jalan saja. And I should perhaps point out that the word saja (only, just) is always placed at the end of the sentence. There is a similar word that is placed at the beginning: cuma or cuman ( an n on the end) Now let s practice the pronunciation of a few words that many people of have trouble. selamat safe learn out, exit ga delapan eight (make sure you don t say DEL-a-pan ) d l-a-pan (and often you won t even hear the d, it will simply sound like LApan And of course you also need to know how to say thank you : terima kasih Or simply: ma kasih. And you re welcome is sama sama, which literally means same same. For example, if you go to a local warteg to have lunch a friend and you want to have the same thing that your friend just ordered, then when asked, Mau apa? (What would you like?), you can simply reply, Sama. (The same. / I ll have the same.) In this audio we want to continue focusing on pronunciation, highlighting common difficulties so that you can keep them in mind, right from the very beginning and continue to work on them as you learn new words and expressions. It s quite common for people to mispronounce the word ke meaning to or going to. Many learners will pronounce it like the letter k, as in okay, or the ca in cake. The proper sound is close to the cu sound in cup or cut. Listen again to Pak Keban. ke to, going to (some place) And the Indonesian word for at, in, on is di. Kamu di mana? Where are you? Another tricky sound for many people is the single g sound. If there s a double g, as in tinggal (live, stay) then you make a hard g sound. ting-gal. But if it s only a single g, then you need to be careful and NOT make a hard g sound. The most common example of this is the word (). Listen closely: tinggal Here are another two: tanggal live, stay date It s also useful to learn words in matched pairs, for opposites, so the opposite to () is panas (hot). And if you re in Indonesia, you may often hear or say, Panas sekali. (It s very hot.) The word sekali means very but can also mean once or one time and you might also hear sekali-sekali (once in a while) which is a bit different but similar to kadang-kadang (sometimes). Learn Indonesian Audio Series 01 BintangBahasa.com Page 4 of 7

5 You may have learned elsewhere that plurals in Indonesia are formed by doubling the word, for example buku-buku (books), majalah-majalah (magazines), but often they won t bother to double it and the plural form doesn t follow the same rules as in English. You say, banyak buku (many books) and you don t double the word. tiga buku three books (s) buku2 saya s You ll also see the number 2 written after a word to signify the doubling. As you ve noticed already though, the doubling doesn t just apply to plurals. For objects (nouns) it s used for plurals, but other words it can mean a range of things. Jalan-jalan. sekali-sekali kadang-kadang Going around. once in a while sometimes And here s another one: pagi-pagi early ; early morning Note that the word kadang-kadang (sometimes) is always doubled. You can t use it as just kadang. Let s practice the pronunciation some more of words introduced so far. selamat ga safe to study, learn to go out, leave; exit And the greetings: (I ll give the English first.) welcome good morning good day good afternoon good evening selamat datang selamat pagi selamat siang selamat sore selamat malam good-bye (to someone leaving) selamat jalan and they can reply selamat tinggal Have a nice sleep. or Sleep well. Selamat tidur. And do you remember these words and expressions? tinggal tanggal Mau ke mal. live, stay date I m going to the mall. Now give the Indonesian word for these: book books s magazine buku buku-buku buku- majalah Learn Indonesian Audio Series 01 BintangBahasa.com Page 5 of 7

6 newspaper name husband my husband koran nama suami suami saya And do you remember these words? ini itu sini sana this that here there How about saja or aja? (just, only) And a similar word that goes at the beginning of the sentence rather than the end? cuma, cuman (only) And hopefully you remember how to say thank you (terima kasih) and you re welcome (samasama). You ll also hear the word kembali (return) used for you re welcome, and they may say, Terima kasih kembali. And let s practice these again: ga delapan learn out, exit eight Another point to remember is the nya ending on words. It s generally used for 3 rd person possessive and as an equivalent to the in English. bukunya ganya the book his/her In fact, however, it s used a LOT, so get used to using it more than you think is logical or natural. For example, you ll often be asked, Siapa namanya? (What s your name?) Logically it should be Siapa nama kamu? or Siapa namamu? (What s your name?), but you will rarely hear that. Partly because kamu is the casual form of you so you wouldn t use it someone you just met unless they re children. You could say, Siapa nama anda? but anda, the formal form of you, isn t used that much in daily conversation. What s most common is to use bapak (for men) and ibu (for women). So, you might hear: Maaf, nama bapak siapa? (I m sorry, what s your name?) The word maaf (sorry) is also a good word to know. To finish off this recording, let s see how many of the expressions and words you remember, and don t worry if you don t remember many of them, just focus on getting your pronunciation right and keep practicing the various material provided.
