This segment 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 “Berapa Kali Sehari?” which means “How Many Times a Day?”

Read to this conversation about “Berapa Kali Sehari?” which means “How Many Times a Day?”Kevin gets explained about how to take medicine prescribed by the doctor.

In the dialog, Kevin asks the pharmacist how many times the medicine is taken a day. He says Berapa kali sehari? (2x) which means how many times a day?. The interrogative word berapa? (2x) which means how many? is used to ask the number of a thing or a frequency to do something. If it is used to ask the number of a thing, it is usually followed by a noun. For example, Berapa macam obat yang kamu minum ? (2x) which means How many kinds of medicine do you drink? Aku minum dua macam obat  (2X)which means I take two kinds of medicine. Theinterrogative word “berapa” is used to ask not only the number of a thing, but also the frequency of an activity. The word “berapa” is usually followed by a verb. For example, Berapa kali kamu minum obat ini? (2x) which means How many times do you take the medicine? Aku meminumnya tiga kali (2x) which means I take it three times.

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.
