Jessi: Top 25 Indonesian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 19: What's wrong in Indonesian? In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Are you alright?/What's wrong?" In Indonesian this is
Fira: Apakah kamu baik-baik saja?
The first word in the question โ€œAre you alright?/What's wrong?โ€ is
Fira: apakah
Jessi: "meaning something like what" in English. Listen to it syllable by syllable.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) apakah
Jessi: Listen again at natural speed. Please repeat.
Fira: apakah
{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, Are you alright?/What's wrong? is
Fira: kamu
Jessi: meaning you.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) kamu
Jessi: Now repeat.
Fira: kamu
{Pause}

Jessi: Now repeat.
Fira: saja
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.

Fira: Saya lelah
Jessi: "I'm tired.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Fira: (Slow) Saya lelah
{pause}
Jessi: But let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:

Jessi:Now repeat.
Fira: lelah

Jessi: Listen to the speaker say, I'm tired., and then repeat.

{pause}
Jessi: To expand on the pattern, replace tired with a little sleepy.
Fira: agak mengantuk
Jessi: a little sleepy
Fira: (slow) agak mengantuk (regular) agak mengantuk
Jessi: Listen to the phrase again, this time with a little sleepy
Fira: Saya agak mengantuk
Jessi: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace tired. Say I'm a little sleepy.

Fira: Saya agak mengantuk
Jessi: To use a different phrase, replace a little sleepy with a little sick.

Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Indonesia and a stranger asks you if you are all right. You want to answer I'm tired.. Respond to the question.
