“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.” Nelson Mandela
Today my First was to learn some key phrases in Indonesian. Watch me here:
If you want to learn, here are a few words and phrases to start with. It’s probably a good idea to hear it pronounced through an online translator that will speak the word for you. There are some tricky ones that look like they would be pronounced differently based on their spelling. I think this language pronounces the letter “c” like a “t” for instance. Good luck with your Indonesian!
