Let’s go - Yogyakarta

“Want to learn a new language in a fun and exciting way? Immerse yourself with the culture, the country, and the language itself.”

A teacher of mine said this to me many years ago, when I just started my journey in learning Japanese. Since then, I become a believer of that statement!

Now, being someone on the other side of the table, sharing my native language, Bahasa Indonesia, to others, I hope I can help the process through a series of “stories” on the culture and country.

The protagonists of this story are two girls, Annisa and Kartika. They enjoy to travel around Indonesia, and their first stop is a place called YOGYAKARTA (JOGJAKARTA). When they arrive in Yogyakarta, they notice the number of motorcycles in the town. The town is so busy, yet lively.

After checking-in to their hotel, they decide to go to JALAN MALIOBORO, one of the major shopping streets in the city.

WOW! There are many things around here, stores and eating places alike. Annisa who likes to shop says, “Oh, I am lost. There is BATIK, handicraft, and clothing stores! I can’t decide.” Kartika, who is more into food shout, “OMG 😋, do you see…there are many LESEHAN (open-air restaurant) to choose from. Help!”

Since both of them can’t decide whether to shop or to eat, they choose the third option… watching street artists, like musicians, painters, and others….

After walking for a while, it’s finally time to eat, and Kartika is so excited. She says, “We have to try GUDEG (a dish made from young jackfruit cooked with coconut milk), then we shall go for MIE DJOWO (traditional fried noodle) and BRONGKOS (a dish mainly made of beef, tofu, eggs, kluwak and coconut milk). Oh yeah, and for the dessert, let’s buy BAKPIA (a small pie made of green beans and other flavours).” Annisa responds, “Ok! On.”

After the hearty meals, they plan for their next day trip to BOROBUDUR…. (to be continued)

Note: Want to know more on those CAPS and BOLD words, do find their complete descriptions and pictures on the internet and be immersed with Yogyakarta 😎

Hi all, Nice to "meet" you and THANK YOU for checking my profile. My name is Desieree ("Dee"). I was born and grew up in Indonesia before started to explore the world, lived and worked in France, Japan, and Singapore (for now). This is how I picked up the skill to share my native language, Bahasa Indonesia, with the people I met along the way. I also use the skill to teach Bahasa Indonesia to the foreigner in Singapore. While leaving overseas, I learned the languages of those countries where I have stayed. That's why I understand how difficult it can be trying to learn a new language. Been there, done that :) If I can share my experiences in learning a new language, these are few tips: 1. Find something that interests you (music, movie, food, etc) 2. Practice every day without fear or worry about making a mistake. A mistake is the best teacher, isn't it? 3. Do not worry about grammar (for now), let yourself learn from the mistake 4. Never too late to learn a new thing (language...
