Learn Indonesian language with tongue twister, it's fun!

Learn Indonesian language with us, bahasa-corner.com. Get the update information of  bahasa Indonesia here, the people, the event, the culture and any other uniqueness to take your fancy. Learning Indonesian language is fun whenever we get familiar with the country and get along well with its people, what do you think?

You are free to learn Indonesian language through this blog and if you happen to reside in the greater Jakarta you may contact us for private learning either to your home of office. A glimpse for you to know, the Indonesian language, anyhow, gives easier pronunciation to speak after as there are hardly stressing words nor sentences. 

Okay now, as you're starting learning Indonesian language you'd better make a lot of drilling as what any learners do when learning English. Need encouragement, stimulation? You may need to know our tongue twister, something like, Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers so where's the peck of pickled peppers that Peter Piper pick?

Learn here and try to find the meaning for homework:
  • Dudung, ambilkan dandang di dinding dong, Dung!
  • Keledai makan kedelai di kedai.
  • Jangan coba-coba cium cucu-cucuku kalau cuma mau cium cucu-cucuku cuma-cuma.
  •  Toko-toko di kota kita tutup ketika kita tetap buka toko kita.
  •  Kuku kaki kakak kakak ku kayak kuku kaki kakek kakek ku.
Learn Indonesian language with tongue twister is as fun as expressing the ideas on the paper for a writer.

Keep up with our update, everyone. See you.

Indonesian comedian

Learning Indonesian by knowing its places of interest, culture, people, including comedian, why not? Maybe the most famous Indonesian comedian now is Sule. However, it is quite difficult to decide he is the man as Indonesia keeps so many professional comedians to outdo one another. It is difficult either to say one will also be the legend later as big as the late Benyamin Sueb who produced 75 music album and played in 53 films during his life time.

Read the following passage about Sule quoted from Wikipedia bahasa Indonesia and learn some new words

Entis Sutisna (lahir di Kota Cimahi, Jawa Barat, 15 November 1976; umur 35 tahun) atau lebih dikenal dengan nama Sule adalah pelawak Indonesia. Ia dikenal karena kemampuan membuat lelucon spontan yang responsif dan kreatif. Sule mulai dikenal setelah memenangkan API 1 (bersama Ogi Suwarna dan Obin Wahyudin dalam grup lawak SOS) pada tahun 2005 dan Superstar Show. Karirnya semakin meningkat setelah perannya dalam acara Opera Van Java di Trans7 dan sinetron Awas Ada Sule di Global TV. Anak pertamanya yang bernama Rizky , kini mulai aktif mengikuti jejaknya

Karirnya semakin meningkat: to improve his career/to rise to stardom
Anak pertamanya: His first son

Indonesian course? Better know a glimpse of Indonesia, first

Welcome to Bahasa corner, that's what we would like to say to you, all people, in case you're looking for a reference to your Indonesian learning programs. This site is the right place for you to take an Indonesian course either online or offline for those living in the greater Jakarta and thereabouts.

Stick around here, learn more about our country, the culture, the people, the things you might not know out there or the things you have been ill-informed so far. First, about Indonesia itself, the uniquness of us starts from when you see Indonesia from the sky through Google map, the structure of the archipelago linking one island to another forming an awesome scene.

Talking about Indonesia's tourism, ever heard of Bali? Bali is probably more popular than Indonesia itself. Bali has become one of the favorite tourist destination areas, visited more by tourists either domestic or globally than any other regions in Indonesia. Why Bali? You see the uniqueness of this island; not only it is inhibited by the predominantly Hindu population with its rich traditional and religious culture, but it has a great deal of enchanting views and places of interest.

By the way, what did you know about Indonesia so far? Terrorism? Radicalism? Stop thinking negative about us. Let's improve our knowledge, lingustical things or something.

When you LEARN INDONESIAN LANGUAGE you will learn greetings. Greetings  usually start with the word selamat as you can see from the
following examples:

Selamat pagi – Good morning
Selamat siang- Good afternoon

Selamat tidur- Good night (before sleeping)

There are also:
Selamat tinggal – Good bye
Selamat datang – Welcome
Selamat Idul Fitri – Happy Idul Fitri
Selamat ulang tahun – Happy birthday
Selamat makan- Happy eating
Selamat jalan- Farewell
or just ” Selamat” – Congratulation
