Jessi: Top 25 Indonesian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 23: Whose is this 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. You'll also improve pronunciation and fluency by repeating the words and phrases out loud after hearing them.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question "Whose is this?" In Indonesian this is
Fira: Siapakah ini?
The first word in the question โ€œWhose is this?โ€ is
Fira: siapakah
Jessi: "meaning something like who" in English. Listen to it syllable by syllable.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) siapakah
Jessi: Listen again at natural speed. Please repeat.
Fira: siapakah
{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, Whose is this? is
Fira: ini
Jessi: meaning this in English. Listen to it syllable by syllable.
Fira: (Slow, by syllable) ini
Jessi: Listen again at natural native speed, and repeat.
Fira: ini
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
