Voice Of Indonesia in Jakarta presents Let’s Speak Bahasa Indonesia, a lesson in Bahasa  Indonesia or the Indonesian language on the radio, which introduces   some  Indonesian vocabulary and  guides  you to use them in a conversation. The segment of Let's Speak Bahasa Indonesia is a cooperation of Voice of Indonesia, with the Language Development and Cultivation Agency, the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture.  Today’s topic is Di sana ada pertunjukan or in English, ‘There is a show’.  

Next is a conversation about  ‘There is a show’ or Di sana ada pertunjukan. At Cultural Center  Tony, Joko, Endah and Dinda are at the Cultural Center in Yogyakarta.

Endah

Wah, di sana ada pertunjukan  tari topeng.

Mau menonton?

Tony

Mau, tetapi kita tunggu Dinda dan Joko dahulu di sini, ya.

Endah

Oke

After the conversation, now I’ll introduce some vocabularies and expressions related to the topic today. I’ll say each word slowly, and twice. You can follow after me.  

Pertunjukan

2X which means

show

Tari topeng

 

mask dance

Di sana

 

there

Di situ

 

there

Di sini

 

here

Di sana ada pertunjukan. tari topeng

 

There is a mask dance. Mask dance

Mau menonton?

 

Do you want to watch the show?

Mau, tetapi kita tunggu Dinda dan Joko dahulu di sini, ya?

 

Alright, but we have to wait for Dinda and Joko, ok.

In the dialogue, Endah said Disana ada pertunjukan tari topeng which means ‘There is a mask dance show’ .

To explain the location or something far from you, you can use the word di sana wich means ‘there’.

For example :

-      Di sana ada pertunjukan tari topeng which means ‘There is a mask dance show’.

-      Dinda dan Joko berada di sana  which means ‘Dinda and Joko are there’.

To mention the location or something close to you, you can use the word di sini which means ‘here’.

For example :

-      Kita tunggu Dinda dan Joko di sini which means ‘we wait for Dinda and Joko here’.

-      Kemarin di sini ada pertunjukan tari topeng which means ‘yesterday, there was a mask dance show  here’.

Besides the words di sana and di sini,  the Indonesian language also has another word di situ in English ‘there’. The word di situ lies between the two words di sana and di sini.  If you want to explain someone’s location  or something that is neither too far nor too close from you, you can use the word di situ in English also means ‘there’.  So, if sorted from the farthest distance, the sequence words are: di sana, di situ, and di sini.

For examples:

-    Saya menyimpan  tiket di sana.     (I keep a ticket there.)

-    Saya menyimpan tiket di situ.        (I keep a ticket there.)

-    Saya menyimpan tiket di sini         .         (I keep a ticket here.)
