Voice of Indonesia presents “Let’s Speak Bahasa Indonesia,” a lesson in the Indonesian language on the radio. We introduce some Indonesian vocabulary and tips on how to use it in a conversation. This segment is a joint initiative of Voice of Indonesia and the Language and Book Development Agency of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture.  Today’s topic is Terima Kasih in English ‘thankyou’.

Read to this conversation about Terima kasih  which means ‘thankyou’. Kevin thanked pak Imran for looking him a boarding house.


Kita sudah sampai di tempat kos Anda.


Terima kasih, pak, sudah mencari tempat kos untuk saya.



Now, I am going to introduce the vocabularies and expressions related to the topic today.

Kita sudah sampai di tempat kos Anda.

(2X)which means

We have arrived at your boarding house

Terima kasih.


Thank you

Bapak sudah mencari kos untuk saya.


You have found a boarding house for me



You are welcome

terima kasih kembali.


You are welcome

In the conversation Kevin thanked to pak Imran by saying Terima kasih which means thank you. After that Kevin says why he thanked to pak Imran. He says (Bapak ) sudah mencarikan tempat kos untuk sayawhich means ‘you have found a boarding house for me’.

Then, pak Imran responds it by saying sama-sama which means you are welcome. In addition to sama-sama, we can say terima kasih kembali in responding someone’s gratitude expression.

In an official forum, you can express your gratitude by saying,Saya berterima kasih atas bantuan Anda, Saya mengucapkan terima kasih atas bantuan Andawhich means ‘I express gratitude for your help’

That was “Let’s Speak Bhs Indonesia”, a lesson in Bahasa Indonesia or the Indonesian language on the radio. Hopefully, this edition will be useful for those who want to know more about Bahasa Indonesia.
