Jessi: Top 25 Indonesian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 10: How is the Indonesian food? In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Indonesian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "How is it?" In Indonesian this is
Fira: Bagaimana rasanya?
The first word in the question โ€œHow is it?โ€ is
Fira: bagaimana
Jessi: "meaning something like how" in English. Listen to it syllable by syllable.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) bagaimana
Jessi: Listen again at natural speed. Please repeat.
Fira: bagaimana
{Pause}
Jessi: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the English translation, breaking it down by syllable, and then giving it once more at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question, How is it? is
Fira: rasanya
Jessi: meaning something like the taste in English.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) rasanya
Jessi: Now repeat.
Fira: rasanya
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Fira: bagaimana rasanya
{pause}
Jessi: You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question How is it??
Fira: Rasanya lezat.
Jessi: "It's delicious. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Fira: (Slow) Rasanya lezat.
{pause}
Learn this question well, as you will hear it often in your travels to Indonesia.
Jessi: But let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:

{Pause}
Jessi: And next
Fira: lezat
meaning something like delicious.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) lezat
Jessi:Now repeat.
Fira: lezat
{Pause}
Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, It's delicious, and then repeat.
Fira: Rasanya lezat.
{pause}
Jessi: To make another phrase, replace delicious with tasty.
Fira: sedap
Jessi: tasty
Fira: (slow) sedap (regular) sedap
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with tasty
Fira: Rasanya sedap.

Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace tasty with spicy.
Fira: pedas

Hi Barb,


There is no specific rule on when to use "suka" or "menyukai"

You can use either one in many cases with no problem.

Although "menyukai" may sounds a bit more formal than just by saying "suka".


As you may already know, "suka" means "like" in English.

"Menyukai" consist of the prefix "men-", the root word "suka", and the suffix "-i".


Hope this helps.
