Tips to Speak Indonesian
Indonesian language is written in Romanized script and pronounced similar to Germanic alphabets. It is not phonetic. Bahasa Indonesia (the Indonesian word for Indonesian language) contains a few words of Sanskrit, Arabic, English, Chinese, Dutch, Portugese, Indian, and other foreign languages, which are all pronounced the Indonesian way. Therefore you might find some Indonesian words which derive from the English words and have the exactly same meaning, however pronounced differently. And this what makes Indonesian language one of the easiest languages in the world. This is also one of the reasons why it is so easy to speak Indonesian, even for those in very early stages of learning.
