(Learn Some Indonesian) : OCCUPATIONS IN BAHASA


28 October is our historical moment where 85 years ago all Indonesian youths declared their oath for being one nation, one motherland and one unity language. The third point is unity language. I ever posted many words about Bahasa Indonesia in my previous postings, and you can check if you wanna try to study it. At least for the moment, you’ll see the vocabulary, about pronunciations, give me some time to do it so. πŸ™‚
