Voice of Indonesia with Let’s Speak Indonesian, a program that introduces the Indonesian vocabulary and guides you to speak in the language. 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 still about Sakit which means Sick.

Here is the conversation entitledTiga Kali Sehari which means Three Times a Day. This dialog is between Kevin and a doctor at a clinic. The doctor tells Kevin about medication rules.Let’s read to the conversation.

Dokter

Saya akan memberi antibiotik. Minum tiga kali sehari dan harus habis!

Kevin

Baik, Dok.

Having listened to the conversation, now I am going to introduce some vocabulary and expressions related to the topic of the day.

Memberi

(2x) which means give

Antibiotik

(2x) which means antibiotics

Minum

(2x) which means drink

Tiga kali

(2x) which means three times

Sehari

(2x) which means a day

Harus habis

(2x) which means should be finished

Minum tiga kali sehari dan harus habis!

(2x) which means take it three times a day and should be finished

In the dialog, you listen to an expression Minum tiga kali sehari (2x) which means Take it three times a day or in a complete expression is Minum obat ini tiga kali sehari (2x) which means Take this medicine threee times a day. In the expression, there is the word kali (2x) which means time. In the conversation between Kevin and the doctor, the word kali is used to state frequency of an action. For example, Minum obat ini tiga kali sehari! (2x) which means Take this medicine three times a day!

Let’s read to another example to use the word.

Doctor: Minum obat ini satu kali sehari, ya, Pak! (2x) which means Please take this medicine once a day, Sir!

Kevin: Baik, Dok (2x) which means Alright

Kevin : Saya makan tiga kali sehari (2x) which means I eat three times a day

Doctor: Oh, begitu(2x) which means Oh, I see

That was “Let’s Speak Indonesian for today. Hopefully, this edition can be useful for those of you who want to know more about Indonesian language
