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 Saya Takjub Melihatnya in English ‘I am amazed to see it’.

Read to this conversation about Saya Takjub Melihatnya in English ‘I am amazed to see it’. Kevin arrives at Komodo Island and he admires the uniqueness of the Komodo dragon.


Inilah komodo, Pak  Kevin


Saya takjub melihatnya.

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

Ini lah ..

This is ..







Expression of takjub which means amazed can be used to express admiration toward something. Another expression that can be used is kagum which means amazed as well.

While an affix -lah is an interjection for stressing or justifying. In the dialog, the sentence Ini lah komodo, Pak Kevin in English ‘this is Komodo, Mr. Kevin’ means ini sungguh-sungguh komodo itu in English ‘this is really komodo dragon’.

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.
