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 Apa profesi anda? (What is your profession)

Read to this conversation about Apa profesi anda? (What is your profession). Kevin meets Rama’s father, then Kevin asks about his profession.

 

Kevin

Kenalkan, saya Kevin, Pak.

Ayah Rama

O, temannya Rama, ya.

Saya Hasan , ayahnya  Rama.

Kevin

Wah, bagus sekali seragamnya. Kalau boleh tahu, apa profesi Bapak?

Ayah Rama

Iya, ini seragam dinas.

Profesi saya seorang tentara di Pusat Misi Pemeliharaan  Perdamaian  Tentara Nasional Indonesia.

Kevin

Sepertinya Bapak  sudah berpangkat tinggi.

Ayah Rama

Ah, kamu bisa saja.

Saya masih berpangkat letnan.

 

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

 

Kenalkan, saya.....

Which means

Hello, I am ….

Apa profesi Bapak?

 

What is your profession?

Apa pekerjaan Anda?

 

What do you do?

Official uniform

If you want to ask about someone’s profession, you can use sentences such as: Apa profesi Anda? Or Apa pekerjaan Anda?In English ‘what is your profession’. If you talk with older person, you can change your greeting word Anda (you)to become bapak or ibu (sir, mom). For examples: Apa profesi Bapak?Which means ‘what is your profession, sir?’, to express your curiosity politely. You also can add with expression Kalau boleh tahuwhich means‘excuse me/may I know  …’

To respond to the phrase of profession inquiries, you can say Profesi saya seorang …. which means ‘My profession is a ....’, for examples:

Wah, bagus sekali seragamnya.  Kalau boleh tahu,  apa profesi Bapak?which means ‘Your uniform is good. May I know, what is your profession, sir’. 

Iya, ini seragam dinas. Saya bekerja sebagai tentara di Pusat Misi Pemeliharaan  Perdamaian  Tentara Nasional Indonesiawhich means ‘This is an official uniform. I work as a soldier at the Indonesian Armed Forces Peacekeeping Mission Center’.

 

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.
