Indonesian course? Learn Indonesian with Bahasa Corner!

First meet Wiro Sableng, a famous Indonesian swordsman who dares say cynically to anybody wanting to learn Indonesian language, "Apa? Ingin belajar bahasa Indonesia?" "Excuse me? You want to learn bahasa?... Over my dead body!"

Forget about that intermezzo.

Okay, even Wiro Sableng born somewhere fictitiously in Indonesia has to speak bahasa to communicate with other. The Indonesian name for the language is Bahasa Indonesia (literally "the language of Indonesia"). This term is sometimes found in English. Indonesian is sometimes called "Bahasa" by English speakers, though this literally just means "language".

As to why people on TV need to speak bahasa, that's because Indonesian, the national language of the country also has a great deal of regional languages including Javanese, Sundanese and Madurese and more which are commonly used at home and within the local community. Most formal education, as well as nearly all national media and other forms of communication, are conducted in Indonesian.

Through this forum I would like to invite you all--anybody who cares about bahasa Indonesia, to learn online on Bahasa-Corner.com or subscribe to it. I believe this site provides what you need to improve your language skill. Especially if you happen to work around Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and thereabouts like Bekasi, Cibitung and Cikarang, my recommendation is a worth try.

Justin Bieber, bahasa Indonesia and the course

Did Justin Bieber know that Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) is the official language of Indonesia? Don't ask him that question when he is singing and dancing on stage. How well does he know bahasa? Rather than say it is Indonesian, it is well known by foreigners as bahasa (the language).

Now, remember Justin Bieber's concert in Indonesia, April 23 2011?--I wrote the similar theme here about a year ago. He sang in English. he danced like an Englishman and the way he thought referred to English-speaking community. But suddenly he spoke bahasa:

"Saya bisa berbahasa Indonesia" (I can speak Indonesian language)
"Ya, saya bisa berbahasa Indonesia."
"Siapa bilang saya tidak bisa berbahasa Indonesia?"
"Saya sungguh-sungguh bisa berbahasa Indonesia."
"Kalau saya tidak bisa berbahasa Indonesia, saya tidak akan mau berbahasa Indonesia."

Any question?

Ada pertanyaan?

Kenapa tiba-tiba Anda bisa berbicara bahasa Indonesia, Justin?

Why all of a sudden you are able to speak Indonesian, Justin?


He might say, "I don't know, ask the crazy blogger." 

The silly one as written above reminds me of a friend who probably will give solution to anybody wanting to master Indonesian language. If you want to know the meaning of the stressing phrases above you may visit Bahasa corner and ask my friend about it.

One suggestion, if you happen to be in Indonesia now, especially in Jakarta, the capital, try to ask the local the meaning of "Katakan tidak pada korupsi!" I am sick of asking this question to politicians. Lol.
