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 Memesan Tiket  in English ‘Ordering a ticket’.

Read to this conversation about Memesan Tiket  in English ‘Ordering a ticket’. Kevin orders a ticket and Tourism Package to Labuan Bajo for 4 days.

If you want to order something, you can use the word memesan which means ‘order’. This word means that someone asks for something. In the dialogue, Kevin asks for a ticket and tour packages to the officer by saying:

Saya memesan tiket dan paket wisata ke Labuan Bajo which means ‘I want to order a ticket and tour packages to Labuan Bajo’.

Here are some other examples:

1. Dia memesan tiket pesawat ke Balikpapan which means ‘He orders a flight ticket to Balikpapan’.

2. Saya memesan dua tiket kereta api untuk kelas ekonomi  which means ‘I order two train tickets of economy class’.

As adding information, to order something you can also use the word mengorder which means ‘to order’

For examples:

1. Ia mengorder sopir untuk mengambil paket which means ‘He/she orders a driver to take a package’

2. Saya mengorder  50 mangkuk  soto ayam dari restoran itu which means ‘I order 50 portions of chicken soto from that restaurant’.

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.
