Booklet 2 – Keluarga Saya Coursebook


Part of the family

Within a few days of their arrival Nick and Wendy had discovered that
Indonesians, in general, are very friendly. They also seemed to be very curious. They wanted to know all about the two Australians and their families. At first Wendy and Nick were a bit overwhelmed by all the attention they received. The many questions they were asked were certainly more direct than they sometimes expected. But as time went by they came to realise that it was not curiosity which inspired the questions, but simply a desire to get to know the two newcomers and make them feel welcome.
Indonesians enjoy being surrounded by friends and family, so they wanted to make Nick and Wendy feel part of the family. It wasn’t long before
Wendy and Nick were able to answer all the most common questions about themselves and their families in Indonesian. Listen to this conversation between Nick and Lutfi, a boy Nick meets at the bus-stop.

Listen to the new vocabulary from Dialogue 1 on Track 032. Repeat in the pauses provided. Add the new words to your dictionary and memorise them.


who (a question-word used exclusively to ask about people). For example: Siapa ini? Who is this?
Siapa nama saudara? What is your name? (Indonesians ask who is your name rather than what is your name)


you (Saudara is a polite form of ‘you’ used among young adults, but is not so common nowadays. Anda is now often used when strangers meet, but once a relationship is established another form of ‘you’ is used. Kamu is used between young people and family members. All these words mean ‘your’ when following a noun.)


to originate, come from



dari mana

from where
