+ Indonesian Pronunciation 101
2 lectures 14:06

If there's only ONE thing you should be able to spell correctly in Indonesian, it's your name! 

Imagine if you're about to check into your hotel in Indonesia. You may have to verify your name by spelling it out correctly to the person who's checking you in. Yes of course you can have a pen and paper and write out your name and then show it to the other person, but wouldn't it be so easy to just be able to spell it out like how you would in your native language?

So after you complete this lesson video, try to spell out your name in Indonesian. Practice spelling your name out loud 3 times. 3 is the magic number here. Do more if you'd like to! The more practice, the better!
