We end Diplomatic Corner with the information from the country.

On Thursday (14/6), European commission has updated EU Air Safety List on a list of airlines that do not meet the international safety standards. Thus, the airlines may not operate in European Union territory. Based on the newest list, 55 Indonesian airlines that were on the old list, have been issued from list of flight restrictions in European Union. The revocation was the result of collaboration which was very long among diplomacy, regulatory improvement and Indonesian flight safety standard which have been begun since 2007. Since 2007, European Union imposed a ban for Indonesian airlines to operate from and to the territory of European Union. In 2009 until 2011, gradually Indonesian airlines were revoked from the restriction list, namely Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia Air Asia, Airfast Indonesia, and Ekspres Transportasi Antarbenua. Meanwhile, in 2016, 3 Indonesian airlines were also issued from the restriction list, namely Lion Air, Batik Air, and Citilink. The development has chance to increase national and international trust on Indonesian airlines’ industry, to facilitate, to enhance tourism industry more solidly, and to open up opportunities for the development of the national aviation industry to Europe.

Chairman of the Democratic Party who is also the 6th President of the Republic of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono -SBY said that the most important thing in the life of the nation is social justice in accordance with the fifth principle of Pancasila. Therefore, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono called for all Indonesian people not to contradict Pancasila against  religion. The call was made in Jakarta recently. He also said that Pancasila should be implemented, especially the fifth principle, namely ‘Social Justice for All Indonesian People’. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono also requested that prosperity must be enjoyed by not only certain groups of people, but also all Indonesian people and they all should help each other. One of the dimensions of justice in life is social justice.

Meanwhile, Deputy Secretary of Nahdlaul Ulama for Jember Branch Office, Moch Eksan said in Jember, East Java (10/6) as quoted from NU online that there are still parties who try to contradict Pancasila and Islam. He explained that there is still a good insight about Islam and Pancasila. Some people try to discredit Pancasila and try to replace Pancasila with religious ideology. He perceived that keeping Pancasila means keeping the Unitary State of Republic of Indonesia -NKRI.  Eksan added that the important point of the NU decision is that Pancasila is not a religion, and it cannot replace religion. Pancasila is only a principle or state ideology. While Islam is an aqidah. Although Pancasila is not a religion, its contents are the crystallization of religious values.

In addition, a member of the People’s Consultative Assembly –MPR, Sabam Sirait asked every element of the nation to fight together to maintain Pancasila and the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia -NKRI. As quoted by during the Socialization of the Four Pillars at Sports Arena (GOR) Bintaro Permai, Pesanggrahan Sub-district in South Jakarta last week, Sabam said that to keep Pancasila and NKRI is very important for the Indonesian nation to remain intact. According to Sabam, loving the nation of Indonesia must be maintained together. He added that keeping the unity among Indonesian people is very important for the sustainability of this country because Pancasila is the only glue of all islands, tribes, and religions.

Let's Speak Bahasa  Indonesia is a collaboration between  Voice Of Indonesia, RRI Foreign Broadcasting Station and the Agency for Language Development, the  Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia.



Next I will give you an example of a conversation on


“Anggap saja Rumah Sendiri” or in English “Make yourself at home”.


Tony lives in Joko's house. Dinda, Joko's wife, will go outside. Dinda wanted to make Tony feel comfortable living in her home.


Dinda  :Tony, kami akan ke luar sebentar.


Tony   :Oh, ya . Silakan.


Dinda  :Kalau kamu mau minum, silakan ambil sendiri.


Tony   :Ya.


Dinda  :Anggap saja rumah sendiri.


Tony   :Terima kasih.


I will introduce the expression and vocabulary related to the theme of the day, which is “Anggap saja Rumah Sendiri” or in English “Make yourself at home”.



Kami akan ke luar sebentar

(2X) Which means

We will be out for a while (2X)


(2X) Which means


Kalau kamu mau minum Silakan ambil sendiri, ya.

(2X) Which means

If you want a drink just help yourself, ok?

Anggap saja rumah sendiri.

(2X) Which means

Make yourself at home        




If you want to ask friends who visit your home to serve themselves, say, "“Silakan ambil sendiri.”   (2x ) which means “Please help yourself” Then it can be added with the phrase “Anggap saja Rumah Sendiri” or in English “Make yourself at home”.


Furthermore, in the dialogue there is the word “kalau” in the phrase which means “if” . "Kalau kamu mau minum, silakan ambil sendiri.” (2x) which means:If you want to drink, please help yourself."


There are several uses of the word ‘kalau”, one of them is used in conditional sentences. For example,“kalau saya pergi, kamu akan sendirian di rumah.”(2x) Which means "If I go, you will be alone at home." Another example,“Saya senang kalau bisa pergi ke Indonesia (2x) Which means "I’ll happy if I can go to Indonesia .


In the dialog there is a phrase,“Kami akan ke luar sebentar,”(2x) Which means "We will go out for a while," . Do not be confused with the word kamu “(2x) Which means "you" . "Kami" (2x) means “we”.


Another example:


-Kami akan pergi ke rumah kamu besok. (2x) Which meansWe'll go to your house tomorrow.


- Kapankamu akan ke rumah kami?(2x) Which means:When are you coming to our house?

we will provide some exercises, which of course relate to the existing words learned.
