Mari Berbahasa Indonesia or Let’s Speak Indonesian is a joint initiative of Voice of Indonesia and the Language Development Agency of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture. Today’s topic is about Sakit which means Sick.

Read to the conversation entitled “Aku Sakit Perut” which means “I Have Stomachache”. This conversation is between Kevin and Mela, his workmate. They talk on the phone.
