Jessi: Top 25 Indonesian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 13: Do you have any brothers or sisters in Indonesian? 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 ""Do you have any brothers or sisters?"" In Indonesian this is

Hello Andrey,


In Indonesian, we put modifier(s) after the noun it modifies so it is kakak (noun) perempuan (modifier).


Cheers,

Sarah

Selamat Sore!

Saya mempunyai kakak perempuan.

I have a question - why we say "kakak" before the noun, not after?

Hello guys,


Thanks for commenting Andy J, Sokhann C, and Abhishek.


Sokhann C, Abhishek, here is to add to your family vocabulary.

older sister - kakak perempuan

older brother - kakak laki-laki/abang


Using Abhishekโ€™s sample sentence, it is โ€œSaya mempunyai satu kakak perempuan.โ€


Salam,

Sarah

What if you have multiple siblings 2 older brothers, an older sister, 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers, where in the phases you say the numbers of siblings?

"Dua laki-laki, dua adik perempuan"...?


Makasih

Hi Sezim,


There are several ways to express โ€œI donโ€™t have a brother or a sister.โ€ in Indonesian. You can say โ€œSaya tidak punya saudara kandung.โ€ that means โ€œI donโ€™t have siblings.โ€ or you can say โ€œSaya anak satu-satunya.โ€ that means โ€œIโ€™m an only child.โ€


Thank you for your comment Sezim!


Best Regards,
