Here is the conversation entitled Nomor Ponsel which means Phone Number. This dialog is between Kevin and a clinic registration staff. The staff asks Kevin’s phone number. Let’s read to the conversation.

Petugas klinik

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

Ponsel

Berapa nomor ponsel Anda?

08122500091

which means zero eight one two two five zero zero zero nine one

In the dialog, you listen to Kevin who mentions his phone number, nol delapan satu dua dua lima ribu sembilan satu. When mentioning phone number, some Indonesians often say kosong instead of nol which means zeroHowever, the right one isnol like Kevin says. Then, Kevin says 5000, which means five zero zero zero, with lima ribunot lima nol nol nol which means five zero zero zero. It is usually said when there are three same zero numbers in a row.For example, nol delapan satu dua dua lima ribu sembilan satu.

Let’s read to another example to mention phone number.

Clinic staff : Berapa nomor ponsel Anda? which means What is your phone number?

Kevin                   : 0812000531. (nol delapan satu dua ribu lima tiga satu) which means zero eight one two thousands five three one

Ponsel stands for telepon seluler which means cell phone. However, Indonesians usually the word handphone or shortened to HP. Therefore, an expression which is often used the most to ask someone’s phone number is Berapa nomor HP Anda? which means What is your phone number?
